Awesome exotic fruit aroma....I write more once I drink one this weekend, I forget.
6.6lb golden Light LME
1lb light DME
1lb Caramel 20L
-Steeped in 2 gallons for 25 min, then topped up to 3 1/2 gallons to start the boil.
Started off boiling 3.3lb LME and started hop additions, added rest of LME and DME at 10m mark. Wanted a nice light color on this, which I got.
.5oz Citra(13.9) @ 25m
.5oz Citra(13.9) @ 15m (also added irish moss at this point)
.5oz Citra(13.9) @ 5m
.5oz Citra(13.9) @ 1m
1oz Citra dry hop for 10 days
I brewed this up because I never tried Citra, and really wanted to get a good feel for the hop. Was concerned it would be overwhelming, but it turned out fantastic with crazy fruity notes. Good body, great aroma and head. Flavor and bitterness are spot on.
Took it to my new brew club, everyone confirmed my suspicion that it was good, so I dont think its just me......
