COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Light haze on this amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Light malts, semi sweet with a mild caramel streak. Good orange start to the hops, little hop spice. Some peel and marmalade. Pine and a whisper of lemon. Smooth semi dry finish. A balanced and flavoursome IPA but the Crystal malts won’t be to everyones taste.

On tap @ Hermitage. Clear golden pour with a finger of white foam. Nose is really disappointing. All toast, bread, and buttery caramel. Grassy and husky. Some straw, a bit of orange, and pine. Flavor is dominated by the malt and sweetness. Just a ton of bread and toast. Fair amount of creamy caramel and brown sugar. A little bit of orange peel. Waste of Citra.

POurs clear dark copper with a creamy/bubbly 3 finger beige head. Aroma is sort of cat pee/evergreen. Med+ body. Nice malt backbone wholly submerged by rough grapefruit rind. Nice bitter, hoppy drink. Mellow in a harsh way.

Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, citrus and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, light grapefruit and a hint of pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

(22oz bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, bread, and caramel. Flavor of caramel, orange, bread, peach, pine, grass, grapefruit, and herbs with a dry, bitter finish.

Amber pour. Caramel malt and candied citrus in the nose, doesn’t smell fresh yet I haven’t seen it before on the shelves in IL. Flavor is again caramel candy, low bitterness, floral hops. Seems to lack most citra character. My guess is it is both a bit old and their hop addition times and quantities just sucked.

22oz bottle...thanks Tim! Poured an amber color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of citrus, some earthiness, and some rinds. Tastes of citrus with some light caramel.

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.

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.
