Citra is the most well received in our series of Single Hop beers. After taking Gold in 2011 and 2012 at the California Craft Brew Competition, and due to its high demand with our consumers, we decided to make this a year-round style. This IPA pours a dark amber in color with an off-white head. The hop aroma is floral, with citrus notes, while the malts have a toasted barley character with some caramel. Citra‘s hop flavor is resiny, with some citrus quality that is offset by toasty malt flavors with a touch of caramel. This is a moderately full bodied beer, with a bright carbonation, and a dry finish.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy reddish-orange amber color. Large, rocky off white pour. Aroma of strong lemon and tropical fruit notes. Bits of sugar cookie and oxidation. Flavor is fruity and bitter. Lots of tropical fruit notes. Mild sweet malt. Nice carbonation. Finishes long and bitter.

jinroh (2125) - ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2017
Tap @ BeerFes Yokohama, September 17th, 2017. Pours nice hazy yellow, light skirmish of foam. Nose is nice Citra, lots of lemon peel and grapefruit. Taste also citric, excellent fresh example of the single hop. Long resiny and citric linger in the finish. Well done.

j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Big bright citrus, soft malt. Medium bodied, a touch of green onion, mango, citrus. Slow bitterness on the finish, lingering mangonion notes. Tasty, but a touch too green for me.

Big bottle from Leicester BrewDog fishing for my ceremonial 8K. Muddy orange with a sinking white cap. Fine stinky Citra aroma in the bottled Oakham ballpark with an abundance of Fruit Salad chew, overripe pineapple and melon, rose, strawberry, orange liqueur. Tangy honeyed orange and menthol hop thick and slightly stewed with sweetness. Floral peach and orange liqueur warmth. In a sense it’s bottom-of-barrel cask English with a slug of heartburn yeast. Bonus point. Way better than my previous two experiences of Hermitage single hop beers, but still average.

Tasting sampler at Beer Zen party, Osaka. Definitely the most complex and potent of the four sampled, a big floral aroma led by strong peach, very dusty and fresh. The flavour produces tropical notes, lychee, showcases the hop well. It’s backed by an earthy malt and strong bitterness, lively on the palate.

TattooJack (518) - Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Poured from the bomber its a cloudy dark orange. Taste is citrus, juicy, spicy, and dry at the end. I walked the gauntlet of citras that have come out lately and this one is really good, just at the 7% mark I look for.

ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Draft. Solid citrus aroma hop and flavor. Decently fruity. Nice mid-bitter hop presence. Medium carbonation and body.

leaparsons (10698) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle, Brewdog Leicester. Golden brown with an off white foam. Multigrain and toffee with oranges and tropical fruit, particularly mango. Brown sugar with herbal and grassy notes. Sweet and jammy apricot with marmalade. Earthy with peppery alcohol. Good.

slowrunner77 (12582) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 23, 2016
thought this’d be my favorite. Maybe it was older a Citra hops are usually bold, but while this was very citrus forward it was more understated and mellow.

Idiosynkrasie (7839) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2016
650ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, dark amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma notes of lemon tea, caramel malty basis. Taste is dry, grassy hoppy, minimally chalky and mineral, notes of lemon tea, lemon zest, malty basis without residual sweetness.

Tselloufc88 (350) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry, aromas of mango, lime, lemon, caramel. Taste is strong citrus, mango, slight resin, strong herbal bitterness in the finish. Slightly spicy. Tasty.
