News of any new hop coming from the Yakima Valley perks the ears of IPA brewers everywhere, but, with Citra, things were different. The buzz was bigger. As Citra’s wave rolled across the land from the west coast we waited... and waited. Finally it crested, and a sample crashed into our pilot system. After brewing with it all the buzz made sense. Comments ranged from "Well that changes the game" to "It’s so good it feels like we’re cheating." Today we procure as much as Citra as we can to bring you as much of this IPA as our little brewery can muster. All hail Citra!

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Admittedly, I’ve been looking for one and was excited when I stumbled upon it. Pours a hazy orange, frothy thick white head, some lacing. Great citrus aroma off the top. Incredibly balanced, juiciness with a slight bit of resinous feel, bitterness and sweetness, leaves your palate wanting more. Overall, awesome beer.  
2016-12-07: Still great, taste/finish more overly bitter than the first one.

Cannette 473 ml. 6.6%. Couleur jaune foncé-dorée, mousse blanche persistente. Arôme de houblon plein le nez. Agrumes, floral, un peu de résine, la totale. En bouche, soyeuse, houblonnée et le malt supporte le tout fièrement, sans prendre trop de place. Un beau mélange de houblon, malt et textures en bouche. Excelelnte.

Tank Ten rocks, another over the top awesome beer from a great (lakes) local brewer. Was jonesing for a retake on the Lake Effect IPA, and viola here is Karma Citra. OK I am an admitted IPA junky, but this one is really good. Piney citrus aromatic awesome. Love it Nicely unfiltered cool looking can. Great beer from GLB

on tap at beau’s oktoberfest 2016 - the craft haus. clear bright gold pour , copper-orange tint, with a very creamy off-white head, tons of lacing. fruity, juicy and lightly toasted golden maltiness; bright citrus - citrusy and nicely boreal; obvious citrus cones, danky melon fruitiness, funky pepper, bitter herbs. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; smooth and almost balanced spicy-citrusy finish. pretty solid citrus american ipa.

Wow, just so good. Huge sweet citrus aroma and bitter hit, then malt, slightly dry and rich body and more hops on the finish. Simple, and great. Like other great IPAs I’ve had, when its fresh its twice as good than two weeks later.

Pours hazy orange gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is big citrus hops an tropical fruits. Flavours are mango, pineapple, banana and orange citrus. Has a good mix of bitter and sweet with a low carbination. Had a sample at the Village Inn and had to stay after to get a full pint of it. Just an all around great beer.

Fresh can bought at the brewery. Slightly hazy golden color. Thick soapy head. Aroma of fresh hop pellets, cognac, spiced meat a little bit, malt, citrus. Taste is bitter fruity hops, grapefruit. Dry pleasant hoppy finish. Full body. Refreshing. Excellent!

On tap at Beaus Oktoberfest. Cat pee and carapils aroma with lots of stone fruit. Almost clear dark gold under a persistent white sheet. Potent catty hops and pineapple flavour with assertive bitterness and notes of stone fruit and resin. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp.

Made with Citra hops, this dark gold beer pours with a nice white head and has a lovely citrus hop aroma. The Citra hops are handled wonderfully and the beer is appropriately bitter and has a great finish.

Tap. Pours Amber with a white head. Sweet trop fruit aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Sweet orange, lemon, pine, toast, passion fruit... Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
