Northern Monk Heathen
The American-bred Citra hops made their entrance into the industry with a bang, taking the craft brewing scene by storm with their otherworldly tropical fruit flavour and aroma. Northern Monk's take on this juicy hop takes the best of its exceptional characteristics to brew a bold yet balanced IPA. A simple base of British pale malt is coloured by small kettle additions of their UK and US hops blend for a soft, fruity bitterness. Come dry hopping time, they slide up a gear with 16kg of Citra spread over three additions, layering them into the beer for the ultimate juicy, resinous taste experience and an aroma of tropical fruit that lures your olfactory sense from across the room.
