"A tropical IPA dry-hopped on the high seas with one of our favorite hops: Citra". Brewed in the style of an American IPA and dry hopped with varying hop varietals. Available in 12 oz. can 6 packs and limited draft. I am reviewing this beer alongside two other varietals, Ahtanum and Calypso (find my review on their respective profiles). Limited rotational release.

Poured from a 12 oz. can to a tulip glass. Served above 53º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy, crisp head of a ecru-white complexion over a hazy golden amber body. Clarity is impeded by significant haze and sediment. Carbonation is vivacious and plentiful in this varietal in particular. Retention is above average, lacing is light and streaked. Appearance is similar to Ahtanum in density and color. 3.75

(Smell) Biscuity, cracker malts pair with a modestly bitter hop profile. Citra hops generate a grapefruit, tropical fruit, citrusy and resinous character with moderate undertones of herbal and floral characteristics. Potency is moderate-full. Easily the most profound and aromatic of the three varieties I sampled. 4.5

(Taste) The Citra hop creates a lemony, fruity and grapefruit-like character with a light peppery backbone that does more than accent the lightness of the malt profile. Bitterness is moderate- more profound than the Ahtanum and nearly on par with Calypso. 4.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, clean, mildly dry. Carbonation generates a mellow crispness for a soft, airy mouthfeel. The body is shy of medium for the style, medium overall. Balance is slightly bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is low, there are no off characters. 4

(Overall) Perhaps the most predictable of the three hops and the only one I’ve knowingly experienced before, Citra has the flavor potential to impart big juicy citrus and peppery characters to create some truly fantastic hop-led beers. The bitterness wasn’t quite up to Calypso’s standards, but Citra was well balanced and most importantly, a great flavor addition to this beer. My favorite of the three varietals I reviewed, standing in front of Ahtanum with Calypso a bit further behind. 4.25
