CITRA: SINGLE‑HOP IPA
The Citra hop has an intense citrus character best described most often as grapefruit. Brewmaster Matt Brynildson loves this hop so much that he says it belong to his “holy trinity of New World IPA hops.”
In high amounts, Citra can flirt with becoming overly pungent or catty, so our brew team has been very strategic in brewing this beer to find the balance for a flavorful, drinkable beer. Our brewers select their Citra hops every year from a number of growers in the Yakima Valley of Washington. Selection is a key element in getting Citra hops that are in balance with the beers we brew. Not too catty and punchy, but turned up enough to be distinctive and carry a lot of citrus character into our beers. In fact, Union Jack uses a small amount of Citra in the dry-hop stage, which means that we have been using this hop since 2006.
