Citra, with its fruity, juicy aroma and flavour, is one of our favourite hops. To showcase it, we’ve used a simple, yet elegant, malt body which puts Citra’s fabulous tropical flavours on display: think ripe lychee, passionfruit and guava. Sweet and tart, with a gloriously juicy mouthfeel.
Short description: single hop IPA – juicy – citrus bite
Style: single hop IPA
Hop: Citra – what else!
Malt: two row base Irish malt
Strength: 5.7% ABV
Bitterness: 62 IBUs
Tasting notes: Colour/appearance: pale orange colour, fluffy white head.
Aroma: full-on tropical fruit juice. The sweet top note is undercut with bitter aroma.
Flavour: those tropical fruits come through all the way in this luscious and full bodied beer. Enough malt backbone to let the passion fruit and guava flavours shine, balanced with strong, persistant orange pith bitterness. Both sweet and tart, with a gloriously juicy mouthfeel.
Aftertaste: full on bitterness with a decent citrus bite.
Food pairings: the bitterness will cut beautifully through sweet low-and-slow pulled pork served with spiced peach relish. This beer also will counterbalance the bold flavours of barbecued chicken wings and play nicely with some grilled spicy fresh Gubbeen chorizo sausages. Try it with a not-too-sweet Key Lime pie for a full-on citrus ending to your meal.
First launched: May 2016. Now part of our premium range.
