Juicy Bits - Double Dry-Hopped With CitraJuicy Bits - Double Dry-Hopped With Citra
Notes: Featuring ripe tangerine, grapefruit, and apricot notes, Citra DDH Juicy Bits is the latest iteration in our DDH Juicy Bits series, an irresponsibly dry-hopped version of our popular New England-style IPA, featuring a huge citrus and tropical fruit hop character with a softer, smoother mouthfeel from the adjusted water chemistry, higher protein malts, and lower attenuation. For this batch, we dry hopped with nearly 4 lbs per bbl of our 2017 selected Citra hops, in addition to the normal dry hop schedule of Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado, bringing the total hop rate up to over 7 lbs per barrel. We also extended the dry hop a touch longer and attenuated the beer a bit further, resulting in a fresh, bright hop character and pillowy mouthfeel.

Very cloudy straw appearance with nice white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is a very pleasant citrus. Taste is also a very pleasant citrus that has an excellent feel

From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Murky yellow, big head.

Smell: Danky citrus.

Taste: Nicely sweet, juicy citrus, soft feel, easy drinker.

Overall: Wanted some NEIPA and to try Weldwerks, so this crossed off two things. Very nice citra IPA, doesn't veer into orange juice acidity, stays nice and sweet and fruity. Very good, not too expensive for a 4 pack either.

Good carbonation, citrus/juice nose, and very hazy in a glass.

I got nice pineapple and citrus throughout the beer, but the finish fell a bit dry and flat for me.

Nabbed a couple 4-packs at Weldwerks last week...

16 fl oz pull-tab can:

"Brewed with Mosaic and El Dorado hops and double dry hopped with Citra." "India Pale Ale."

Served cold into a randal mastercraft glass.

APPEARANCE: ~3-4cm head height white head. ~7 minute head retention.

Body colour is a turbid yellow-orange. Obviously unfiltered. I see no yeast/lees within. Nontransparent.

Looks like pulpy juice, to its detriment.

AROMA: Fresh citrus, orange pulp, 2-row/pale malt, faint melon (probably from El Dorado hops), faint tropical fruit influence...scintillae of mango or maybe stonefruit.

Citra seems well showcased for a turbid IPA based on the aroma, which suggests a highly drinkable pulpy IPA with minimal hop bitterness.

Aromatic intensity is moderate.

TASTE & TEXTURE: Quite soft on the palate, with a cushiony smooth mouthfeel that evens out any citric pulpiness that might otherwise be present. Carbonation is near perfect. Wet. Refreshing. Medium-bodied. It's a very approachable mouthfeel that subtly accentuates the impression of citrus pulp its many citrusy flavours are generating.

Citrusy, with orange, subdued mango, passionfruit, and a whisper of lemon let in the door by the Citra hops. Melon, stone fruit/vague tropical fruit flavours, 2-row/pale malt, wheat malt.

It's well balanced though it does want for more hop pungency and depth of hop flavour. They're clearly targeting a minimally bitter IPA, but quashing bitterness often comes at the expense of the expressiveness of the hop varietals...they've done a good job mitigating the damage, but nevertheless I do think a beer like, say, Kern River's Citra showcases the titular hop better than this does.

OVERALL: Those caught up in the haze craze who want a pulpier stab at the turbid IPA substyle will find this rewarding, and for my money it is a welcomely juicy change of pace for a Mosaic & Citra hopped beer - comparing favorably even to a tried and true beer like Deschutes' Fresh Squeezed - but I can't say I'd seek it out over plain ole Juicy Bits and I do think other Juicy Bits variants have separated themselves more decidedly from the base beer via more diverse dry hopping regimens.

Low B (3.55) / GOOD

Pours a cloudy golden straw color with a fresh white head. Smell is fruity and juicy with hops. Taste has citrus,pear mango melon and passion fruit. A medium carbonation mouth fell with some drying bitterness in the finish.

Canned back in early January so a little older than I usually look for in an IPA but had to try it. Huge fan of citra here so no brainer. Magic is definitely still there in this one. Juicy bits indeed!!!! Hmmmm mmm mmm. Super light and easy drinking. Love 7% ipas

Can stamped 01/10/18

Hazy yellow-orange with a pure white frothy head. General green hoppy freshness hits the nose first (a plus for me), spicy herbs, apricot, lemon. Juicy fresh hop flavor - pineapple, grapefruit, melon, and tangerine. Super crisp, easy drinking, somewhat fluffy carbonation. Tasty - I think I liked the regular Bits a little more, but still very satisfying.
