COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 15, 2017
Dark golden to amber in color. Diminished off-white head. Citra scents, with grapefruit and mild resin and pine. Sweet ruby red grapefruit/blood orange flavors in the start. Tasty citra, but somehow one-dimensional, but not necessarily in a bad way. A hops-head brew.

3.3
dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2017
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a great looking medium to fuller body deep orange with an average sized tight creamy off white head. Aroma of English yeast, dry orange candy, dust, grains, bread. Flavor is similar with a big nod towards the English yeast strain which really drags this beer down and dries it out. When I want a big 7.5% IPA I DON’T WANT AN ENGLISH YEAST STRAIN!!!!
