I was wondering if anyone has any good recomendations on citra hops brew?
Sierra Nevada Torpedo and Victory Headwaters Pale Ale.
Saranac's White IPA
Double Sunshine for me. Hard to get but trade worthy for sure.
Kern River Citra, obv.
Gotta be ZD.
Strangely enough, despite being the beer that originated the Citra hop, I get surprisingly few of the predominant Citra characteristics from Torpedo.
Perpetual IPA. I have a ZD clone everyone likes but have never had the real thing
I'm with tectactoe, gotta be zombie dust.
my understanding is its only dry hopped with Citra.
Citranation by Night Shift.
Whoa. Torpedo has citra? Color me surprised. I get next to no citrus flavor in that beer.
Edit: Forgot to mention my favorite. Aside for the obvious, KRBC Citra, my favorites are Knee Deep Simtra and Anchorage Bitter Monk.
As said in the thread quoted above, Citra Pale from OddSide Ales in Michigan. Not sure where you're located but it's not bottled AFAIK.
Hill Farmstead Citra
HF Double Citra
Hill Farmstead Citra and Double Citra are really good. I want to try the Kern version for sure also.
All of you Citra hop fans may want to sit down for this... About 30% of the Citra harvest was rejected by various processors and much of the remaining harvest got 'wind burnt'. The flavor of the 2012 harvest has shifted some and a brewing colleague of mine said they rejected ALL of their Citra contract because of "onion and garlic" rather than citrus and a petroleum note as well. 2011 Citras were great...the 2012 crop had a weird weather season and stressed the bines. There may be good lots of Citra but two different processors I deal with have acknowledged the above.
Schell Citra Pils and Kern River Citra
Orange Whip from Mad Fox! Susan from HF is also fantastic, though not as accessible ...
Dry Dock's Breakwater Pale Ale.
This may be the saddest thing I've heard in a while...
Heading to the Citra release at Kern River tomorrow. Staying at the lodge next door and will be second or third in line. 3 people, one doesn't drink...I'll have 12+ bottles. Should we talk ?
I stumbled upon this beer one day while making a stop at Ashley's in Ann Arbor and it blew me away. Probably my favorite pale ale to date (I have trouble considering Zombie Dust a pale ale regardless of how FFF labels it, haha).
Is Hoppy Birthday a Citra Pale Ale?
Pseudo Sue by Toppling Goliath.
Hence the name of this beer:
Thanks for the info Tashbrew
Has to be Zombie Dust. Or Citra Ninja by Pipeworks.
Zombie Dust hands down!!!
To echo half the replies, ZD. No question.
it is ZD but honorable mention to surly wet (2011)
Duvel Tripel Hop! (2012 Citra edition, 'natch)
There was a hop shortage last year 2011 harvest... 2012 harvest isn't in most brewers hands yet. The beers brewed with 2012 Citra most likely haven't hit the market yet...
My favorite beer when I was in the UK:
The Kernel Brewery - India Pale Ale Citra.
World class stuff. Highly recommend to anyone that's making a trip (SEEK THIS BREWERY OUT). They also make a Double Citra, which was just in your face delicious.
ummmm isn't HopSlam made with Citra? why is this not in the convo? (sorry if i missed it)
