About the Hop Blend

Citra®

As the name suggests, the Citra® brand of HBC394 hops
is characterized by the very distinct citrus and tropical
fruit notes it imparts to beer. This pungent high oil hop
also contributes notes of spicy and floral. A small nod
to the irony of its noble Hallertau m.f./U.S.
Tettnanger pedigree.

brilliantly into the finished flavor
and aroma of the beer, in part

argonomics and a relatively high alpha
acid level.
