Art Brew Hip Hop Extra Citra (6%)

Citra Hip Hop ExtraI’m generally not a fan of Citra.
I think it smells of wee.
Often my wee.
Perhaps I drink too much.
But Art Brew have managed to stop it smelling of wee by balancing the hops beautifully against a bran tinged, golden syrup coated shortbread biscuit.
The hops are still very big but the harshness I often find in Citra has been rounded off, leaving a super juicy lemon rind and mandarin zest sharpness that gives this lovely amber beer a good fresh fruit salad smell and a finish that makes your tongue quiver with its long dry crispness.
Still not a huge fan of Citra though.
And I think I might have to visit the doctor about my wee.
