In Betula we combine Vic Secret and Citra hops, onto a light and wheat-heavy malt base. The two hops balance well with Vics bringing a lot of peach flavours, and Citra offering that dank hit of grapefruit and ripe tropical fruits. Fermentation on London Fog offers up more stone fruit flavours and the end brings in a light bitterness.
