Default Hopburst Citra light (3.5% ABV) ale


My take on a low alcohol session ale. It is a fantastic hoppy aromatic light ale!

Estimated Color: 9.8 SRM

----------------------------
Single Infusion, Medium Body, Batch Sparge

300 min Mash In Add 19.00 qt of water at 167.9 F 156.0 F

Notes:
------
Mash temp 156.4, 7 AM-12 noon. OG 8.9 brix, 1.036, cooled 2 days before kegging.

I added a couple of ounces of whole Citra to the keg giving it an unbelievable Mango/citrus aroma. Aged 2 weeks and it is the perfect light hoppy beer, 100 kcal for 12 oz...!

Looks solid and delicious.. Think a couple grams of hops at 60 would add a hint of bitterness that would linger a bit? Could call it a under session ipa!!

I'm all about hopbursting these days. Except for IIPAs or imperials I don't do 60 minute additions, just use high alpha % hops later on in the boil. This one is just right I think!

I'm going to make this soon. I love big fruity Ipas, but I just wish I could drink alot more in one sitting without all that alcohol. I'm curious why you used Tettnanger at 20min?

Why boil 90mins when you only need to boil 20 for the hops?

Traditional thinking says that Pils malt needs a 90 minute boil to drive off DMS but there is much controversy out there about this with todays fancy malts.
