Hermitage launches Single Hop Series in UK

The nation’s growing community of craft beer devotees have two new reasons to celebrate after San Jose’s Hermitage Beer launched two of their Single Hop Series on draft in the UK.


Hermitage’s Single Hop Citra is a 7% ABV/55 IBU IPA which took Gold at The 2011 and 2012 California State Fair, Commercial Craft Brew Competition. The most popular of Hermitage’s single hop beers pours dark amber with an off-white head. The hop aroma is floral, with citrus notes, while the malts have a toasted barley character and notes of caramel.  Citra‘s hop flavour is resiny, with some citrus quality that offset by toasty malt flavours. This is a moderately full-bodied beer with a bright carbonation and a dry finish.


Hermitage’s Single Hop Mandarina Bavaria is a 7% ABV/65 IBU fairly new hop, grown in Hull, Germany. It has only been available to brewers since 2012. Its lineage is the Cascade hop and is Germany’s answer to fruit-forward New World hops like Citra and Galaxy. Mandarina imparts superb Mandarin orange aroma and flavour.


Citra and Mandarina Bavaria are available in 20l kegs from Left Coast Distribution on 07977 507447 or at
