Pouring a hazy yellow-orange and full of citrus, herbal, tropical, and dank aromas. The palate is bright and vibrant with a juicy fruit character that is extremely refreshing and satisfying and leads into a mouthfeel that’s light and easy drinking, but also has firm bitterness to keep things interesting. This is New England IPA how it was intended.
Citra is the hop of choice in Mason’s twist on their classic IPA. This beer is heavily dry-hopped; Dry hopping in a process where hop pellets are added in heavy amounts at the end of the brewing process, and this contributes lots of hop flavour and aroma without adding too much bitterness. This hop is ripe with zesty lemon/lime flavor. Citra is a high-impact variety from the US that has become a benchmark in hoppy beer brewing.
