Foothills Citra India Pale Ale is July’s Hop of the Month Series release.
Each beer in the series focuses on one particular hop flavor, giving it a solo spotlight for one month only. Some releases are pilsners, other pale ales. This month, the Foothills brewing team chose an India pale ale to show off the Citra hop – very similar to the tropical flavors found in Foothills Jade IPA.
A distinguished parentage of German, British and American hop varieties were bred to create Citra and its uniquely intense aroma profile — which makes the surprisingly smooth flavor contours of mango, citrus and subtle lemon notes all the more enjoyable.
