Honey amber with cornsilk highlights when backlit and a creamy, eggshell head that leaves sticky rings of lace on the glass. The nose is pure Citra, tropical fruity, dank and herbacious with a touch of caramel slathered toast. The flavors are nice, the high alpha Citra does what it does in so many beers, mainly deliver herbal tea, dank weed and tropical fruity flavors in pleasant harmony. The malt backbone is decent and balances perfectly with the hops. Creamy and full bodied, this is a nice drinking brew. This beer is really good, I can't wait to try more beers from Hermitage Brewing. Well done.

Picked this up in Arkansas (Liqour World in F'ville, AR)

Pours honey colored with a pinky of pearl colored head. Decent lacing & average head retention

S: lemons,leafy & herbal hops, pineapples & perfumy

T: Follows the nose, pears & breadyness, some leafy hop profile as well. Some pineapple as this warms, leafy hops, breadyness & pears, plus dryness. Finishes with leafy & dry hops, a touch of caramel & a modicum of pineyness

MF: Medum bodied, slight carbonation, great balance

I like this, but have never tasted some of these flavors in a citra hopped beer. Perhaps this is old, no freshness dating. Still, damn tasty & super drinkability!

Trying the Single Hop Citra Series from Hermitage and quite honetly I was hoping for a bit more. This beer is not bad....good in fact....just was hoping for a bit more. The beer poured a cloudy copper with thick white head that is lacing nicely. The scent is powered by fresh hop that favors pine and spice. The taste is has a twang of bitter citrus throughout but there is a battle between a sweet malt and hop throught the beginning and middle, in which the malt loses iin the end and the bitterness lingers on the pallet. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall it is a decent IPA....I wish I had some of the other single series available to compare....that would be cool.

A - pours a clear orange with a fluffy head and nice lace. No bubbles.

S - mango, tangerine, very mild floral and a soft generic hoppyness. No cat pee. No dankness. Very soft malty note. Pleasant, but somewhat reserved, probably due to age.

T - is like the aroma with a relatively low sweetness. It has a firm bitterness that is balanced by a trace of sweetness. Enjoyable flavor.

M - medium body with low-medium carbonation. Creamy. The bitterness lingers for a relatively long time and has a pleasant anesthetic quality without crawling down my throat and ruining my day.

O - as far as single hop Citra brews go, this one is refined without being wimpy. It avoids all the potentially negative aspects of Citra (according to me, but others like the rougher characteristics of Citra). I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this beer and enjoyed it quite a bit.
