So, I am planning on brewing this next weekend.... I listened to the podcast, and have all my ingredients. One thing I really took away from the Podcast was when Kyle said that its really easy to over do Citra... He mentioned that if overdone, it can make it seem like you are drinking fruit juice.

Well, this week I had single hop beer that is made by Knee Deep Brewing. Its a Citra Pale Ale. My final impressions on that beer was that I almost felt like I was drinking fruit juice. I am hoping it may have been a bad bottle ( it was also very lightly carbonated), as they are one of my favorite breweries right now, but I became worried about brewing this Citra IPA.

I like bitterness in my IPA, and not an overly sweet IPA. Are any of you who brewed this finding that its a bit overdone on Citra, or that is has fruit juice qualities to it? Man, I don't want to brew Mango juice! I am hoping you guys who have brewed this, or have had the real deal, can ease my mind that brewing this is the right thing to do. I am committed to brewing this, I just hope it turns out to be a great beer like its cracked up to be!

It is fruit juicy. At ~60IBUs, it's to be expected, it's also very close to what the real deal tastes like, which, this being a clone, is a good thing. If you really want bitterness, you should add some harsher traditional bittering hops if you want to get away from the Citra juice effect.

It smells like fruit juice, it has a really good balance if u get it down to 1.010 it won't be to sweet. Drank my last bottle a couple weeks ago from the last release it smelled like pineapple juice. yum It's not really bitter though it's just right

My keg sadly ran dry of this one last night. It is a sad day today. This beer was a hair bitter when I first kegged it, but it wore off and was perfect afterward. This actually tasted identical to Zombie dust with an oz of cascade in the dry hop vs Armarillo.

Just added my 4th dry hop addition yesterday and began force carbonation. Hopefully will be drinking quality Citra by this time next week, but the flat sample I had today was awesome.

Curious to know if everyone is going into a secondary with this one? I'd prefer to keep in primary, even with the dry hopping schedule, but would do a secondary if its recommended. Cheers!

I did my secondary and dry hopping in the keg. Worked great for me. Also, I emailed Kyle from Kern River Brewing, and he told me that he leaves all of the dry hop additions in together until he racks after 12 days of dry hopping...doesn't remove each addition before adding the next.
