With its distinct and intense citrus character is one of America’s biggest hitting hops. It’s also the name we’ve given to our take on a session strength, or as we call it ‘junior’ New England IPA. Brewed with bags of Citra, this unique hop provides our namesake with a super juicy, tropical fruit aroma and flavour, providing powerful, interwoven notes of mango, guava, and lychee fruit. Heavy dry hopping gives its characteristic haziness, full body and full-on bitterness to finish. Enjoy.
