Yes, we do have Citra

Brewing on a weeknight. It's 9:50pm, the boil hasn't started, and I am tired... batch sparged in a hurry, weak boil. Targeted an OG of 1.070, came up a bit shy.

Batch #95
Hoppy red
5 gallons
13 lbs California 2-row malt
0.5 lb Carared
0.25 lb Special B
0.25 lb Chocolate
1 oz Citra 12.7%aa (60 min)
1 oz Citra 12.7%aa (10 min)
1 oz Simcoe 11.6%aa (5 min)
1 oz Citra (1 min)
1 oz Citra (dry)
1 oz Simcoe (dry)

Water: RO with (about) 3g each CaCO3, CaSO4, CaCl2, and 1g each MgSO4, NaCl, NaHCO3
Yeast: 1L starter of WLP001 California Ale Yeast

OG: 1.060
IBU: ~65

Single infusion mash at 149F for 1 hour. Batch sparge to collect 7 gallons wort. Boil 1 hour, chill. I let it settle overnight before racking to the carboy and pitching yeast.
