I opened the fridge to a smell of nothing but Citra, its HHUUUUUGGEEEE!!! It literally smells like a barrel of Passionfruit juice!
1.064 - 1.015 almost exactly where it should be, and there's still Citra available, which mean I could probably brew it again, if i can find the hops.

Sunday will be another brew day (got some catching up to do from my time off).
Dubbed the Sons of Liberty American Porter.
A Robust Porter, Generously hopped with 100% Amarillo Hops.

Well I transferred and dry hopped my super beer today, it's crept up a tiny bit since last measured, it's now 20.7%. Had a little taste as well and whilst the maltiness is still the same the citrus has died down a little and there's a mint flavour coming through

I tried it once on a failed batch and it ended decidedly ****e
