COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

Bottle. Dark amber with pale brown dense head. Lots of deposits in the beer (1 cm in the bottom of the glass), last part of the batch ? Aroma citrus and grape notes. quite offensive, nothing subtle here. Taste bitter and hoppy. A quite brutal beer. I´ve tasted better beers from the hopp project. The beer leaves your tongue with an unpleasant layer of hopps, that nearly impossible to get rid of, not an especially nice finish.

8 Nov 2013. Surprise birthday single hop IPA tasting! Smells very nice, sweet and fruity, with lots of citrus and some florals. Taste is much less interesting than the aroma - bitter with some soapy/metallic taste but not much else going on.

alexsdad06 (7107) - Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2015
12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grapefruit citrus, orange, pine resin, moderate sweet bread, light earthy notes. Medium bodied. Finishes with more citrus, brown bread, moderate bitterness. Hops seem faded a bit.These always seem to hit too late in the game.

whoa, looks like I forgot to upload this rating. EDIT: aha, I took the wrong Citra IPA back then. sorry. As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Citrus hoppy. Citrus taste, bitter. Good finish but gone quickly. Refreshing. One of the better ones!

Orangey slightly hasy with a white bubbly head and efferbescent carbonatstion. Citric orange/pineapple nose. Hoppy flavor with some caramel malts at the back. Medium palate a little astringent maybe. Nice ioa albeit a bit too rough

shorlin (719) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Muddy looking, blood orange colour. Particulates. Solid head. Aroma is kind if earthy, malty. Hops are a bit caramel, orange. Taste is very bright, citrusy, bitter full taste. So delicious! Feel is medium full, lingering. Long deep finish. Really good.

JohnRMurdoch (3856) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2014
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Muddy reddish amber brown, good head. Resin hop aroma. Sweet tropical and citrus fruit aroma. Well balanced and sommot for an IPA. Citra has got to be one of the best hops.
