Hop of the Month: Citra

Since its introduction in 2007, the elusive Citra Hop has been in high demand and low supply. Brewers lucky enough to get their hands on some have made some amazing beers. Originally known as HBC 394 cv, Citra is aptly named, imparting fresh citrus aromas and flavors, plus a variety of tropical fruit notes. Not just delicious on its own, Citra is a team player that works beautifully with other hops, too. Check out these delicious brews showcasing the flavors of this hot, hip hop.

Just as a mosaic is built from a multitude of smaller pieces, the Mosaic hop combines a myriad of hop flavors and aromas into one complex little cone – a Mosaic of flavors and aromas that you’ll find in our favorites below.
