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!

seymour (1989) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2017
Sampled at 777th Criderfest in a Willybecher glass, a mostly clear golden amber colour with beige foam. Nice supportive maltbill with some bready and biscuity complexity, with predictable Citra hop bitterness, flavour and aroma: lemongrass, citrus zest, basil, resin. Light-medium body, smooth round mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, well-concealed alcohol, lingering hoppy aftertaste. A particularly good A-IPA.

At the Brewery In Chicago. Aroma of citrus hops. Pours dark yellow. Hops build in the middle to a citrus tang that lingers. Crisp individual hop flavor throughout ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tropicalfruit notes, peach an caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice IPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Bright hop aroma, hazy cooper oarange pour with lingering foamy white head. Very tasty but finishes bitter. Would be better with a lighter palate

Tap. Pours clear golden to amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Flavours of grapefruit, malt, floral, orange and pine. Oily texture. Medium to heavy bitterness. Great stuff!

3.6
maekchu (3847) - 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.

3.5
KyotoLefty (10205) - 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.
