|Description:||If commercial names say anything, Citra is certainly one of the best examples of hop trademark naming done right. Released to the public in 2007, this variety has taken the world of craft brewing by storm, and today it’s very hard to find a craft brewery that doesn’t use Citra in at least one of their beers.
This is due to the fact that Citra delivers exactly what the name suggests – an explosion of citrus flavours and aromas, including notes of grapefruit, gooseberry, orange and tangerine. It has fairly high alpha acid levels, but is mainly used during the later stages of the boil due to its highly prized aroma. Definitely a must-have hop for brewing American IPAs, Pale Ales, Double IPAs, Black IPAs, Citra can also be incorporated into other styles such as Pilsner or Saison with excellent results.
