AF Brew Eat The Dust! DDH Citra

Other Notes: Double IPA DDH Citra

Brewer Description: (from description on ratebeer) Eat the Dust! is a new round in our ‘haze craze and juicy race’. It’s a DDH all-Citra, and nothing but 20 g/l of pellets and 3 g/l of lupulin powder literally smuggled into Russia. You can’t get further into the hops after all that.

Intro: A 500ml can, canned on 14th October 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy straw yellow colour with a three finger white head that had great retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Juicy, citrus, orange, lemon zest and pith, with a good smack of tropical pineapple and mango at the end.
Taste: Like the aroma, juicy, citrus, mandarin, orange peel, lemon zest and pith, light bitterness with tropical mango and pineapple on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was enjoyable, better than Mosaic and Simcoe in my opinion although admittedly this is two or three weeks fresher. Good juicy citrus and tropical fruits in the aroma and taste.
