Citra Hero is an elegant American IPA designed to showcase the Citra Hop variety.

We utilized 2-row, Pale Ale, Red Wheat and Belgian Aromatic malts to provide a deep golden color and clean malt profile for this hoppy ale. Multiple additions of Citra in the brew kettle infuse this beer with deep layers of citrus aroma and flavor and a clean, crisp yet intense bitterness.

After primary fermentation with our English Ale Yeast we dry-hopped with one pound per barrel of Citra once again to really load this ale up with a burst of fresh citrus fruit.

Weighing in at 7.5% ABV this ale is sturdy enough to hold up to the higher bitterness level but is still quite sessionable and exploding with fresh hop character!

maekchu (3509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 16, 2016
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Fat Citra nose, a bit spicy and cat pissy. Hazy copper color. Thick malt for a microsecond and then the Citra kicks in hard, dominating the rest of the way. Thin-medium body. Nice enough, but the Citra is pretty much the whole thing.

KyotoLefty (9403) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2016
Can. Crisp lemon nose, Citra hops, a bit soapy. Glowing orange-golden color, hazy. Sweet and lemony with nice Citra coming through and an oily palate.

cheap (5363) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2016
IPA in a can. Smells like ruff IPA, with no volatile BO tho. Cloudy IPA look with a thin creamy head. Big strong citrusy IPA punch in the face. Over the top and rototiller down the back of my throat. What else fricken can be said? Terribly terrible and rudely on style, could pass as an impy. This gets a 10 out of 10 for nasty nellie-ship Whew! Such a palate wrecker. If you like IPA, you need to experience this happy hoppy BS!!

Hopmaestro (1307) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2016
Aroma is grapefruity and hoppy with a slight spice tone. Good punch from the Citra. Taste is sweeter than I expected, a medium malty body that carry the fruiter tones well. Sweet pineapple, mango and slight citrus oily. A little more down to earth than I expected, but never the less a great beer.

Finhead (1629) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Hazy, brown-gold pour with a white head. The aroma is citra hop dominated with grain backbone. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a sweeter finish.clove,

SG111 (1295) - New York, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours pale yellow, white head. Aroma is pine, orange, kind of dank, hard to put my finger on, but sort of chemical-y, almost like kitty litter? Not entirely unpleasant. Flavor is caramel, orange, slight pepper note? Again, not easy to describe and not what I would call a classic Citra bomb. Definitely pine, and pretty decent overall.

Nice aroma of fresh tropical fruit, some pineapple, as well as fresh cut floral notes. Nice deep yellow color with a frothy tan head....hangs a while. Sweet up front, huge fruity flavors. Almost a bit too sweet, but the bitterness cuts in nicely not too long after initial sip. Bitterness is smooth. Very drinkable, light refreshing mouth feel. Finish is well balanced, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
