COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in our Purebred series of single hop A.P.A.s showcases the hop variety Citra. These are used for everything from bittering and flavor to aroma. The soft bitterness of the Citra hop makes this an extremely drinkable beer.

Had this one at Rustico on Draft. Poured a nice light-orange/rich golden color with a nice solid white head that left plenty of lacing. Tropical fruit hop characteristics, but perhaps a bit more mellow than I expected from the Citra. Overall a decent brew.

Ferris (4968) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle - Fresh pine and little else. Clear gold with a thin white head. Pine and resin, with a balanced bitterness. Nice but one sided, as expected with a single hop. The resin is a bit overwhelming and lingers.

reebtogi (4363) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
650ml bomber bottle pours a clear golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is quite pleasant with a definite citrus note and some other light fruits. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A very flavorful pale ale that is nicely balanced and worth checking out.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is lightly grassy and earthy, and doesn’t seem all that appealing. Taste is lightly bitter, but earthy and dirty. Not all that great for me.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2013
650ml brown bottle. Gold pour, crystal clear. Fat white cap that lasts a long time, good patchy lacework. Hoppy nose with citrus and light tropical notes. Taste has orange peel and grass and mild tropical sweet notes, malt character is rather neutral. Dry finish, quite clean, light lingering bitterness, a bit of grass and grapefruity hops lingering. Decent carbonation and light bodied. A good single hopped sessionable ale that features the Citra hops well.

22oz bottle pours a hazy pale yellow/orange with a lasting off-white head. Big hoppy aroma. Floral and a bit papery. Bitter with a lot of fresh hoppiness.

stevoj (2320) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Slightly hazy amber beer with creamy head, thick lacing. Citrus/pine aroma, hops more subdued in flavor as dry malt comes into play. Finish is abrupt and dry. Smooth drinker.
