Citra IPA

Citra IPA

I’m pleased to say that this is pretty damn good. It’s fairly clear for a homebrew, especially one of mine. The nose has a wonderful citrus quality, somewhere between orange and lemon, courtesy of just-over-a-week’s worth of dry hopping with a notable but not overpowering bitterness on the end. The bitterness coats though; I can feel some of the oils on my tongue so I suspect after 3 or 4, you might notice a bit more.

Of course by then; Who cares?

I’ll get the recipe up on Friday. Need to drink more to better evaluate this beer and I’m sure you all understand.

      1. Excellent… I’ve an IPA I need to bottle this weekend. Hopefully I can nail the carbonation as well.

    1. I’ll have to check my notes, but I believe I added .5 tsp of yeast to my simple syrup for bottling. I don’t know if that info helps much but I hope it tells you something.

  1. Brewed a Citra IPA a few months ago. I love them myself, but I have met quite a few brewers that absolutley HATE them. I think they are great dry hopped in the keg! I will defintily use them again. Check out my homebrewing blog :

    1. I have to say, this batch with Citra dry hopping came out so well that I just don’t know why someone wouldn’t consider them.

      I’ll check out your blog; thanks!
