I brought the first pour of this keg to the GRABASS event this past weekend, and it was extremely well received. Walker and IdahoDal in particular. I agree. In my opinion, it is sim,ilar to my simcoe/amarillo IPA, but def more tropical fruit as I have seen others comment. The munich does come through nicely to balance out the hops some, but this is a very hop flavor forward beer. I just thought I'd post it since Citra is a relatively new hop to a lot of us. I will def be doing this one again! Cheers!

I got a pound of citra hops and wondering myself how to implement it in a recipe. I think I might go with an all citra pale, or IPA.

That sounds pretty damn good man. I think I'll have to give that a try. I've never experienced citra, but I've heard it's like cascade on crack!!

My version has the ladies going crazy. I opened the first bottle a few weeks ago. I have about 300 full bottles of all kinds of brews, so it takes me a while to go through it. But we had a party yesterday for National Homebrew day and we drank about 30 bottles. About 90% of that was by the ladies who just couldn't get enough of it.

To all that have brewed Skee's CitrAm.... Describe what yours tastes like, please.

I had the pleasure of 'sampling' the original batch. I put that in quotes because I think I drank pretty much then entire growler that Skee brought with him to our gathering.

I loved it and brewed my own batch a couple weeks later. Unfortunately, mine is nothing like the original.

before I describe what mine tastes like as well as what Skee's tasted like, I'd like to year YOU describe what YOUR'S tastes like.

I'm also interested in some more feedback on this after talking to walker about this. My second batch is on gas now and I will be taking some to walker's on Sunday to make sure that my first attempt wasn't a fluke, but when I tasted it at kegging time, it was just like I remembered it. We shall see soon though. Cheers!

Just bottled this last night. If you guys are still keeping tabs on this thread I'd love to know how the original tasted to see how close I got.
