When we started Night Shift, we had little intention of brewing an IPA in our first year. After numerous request from our awesome fans, we finally gave in. Citranation is a 100% Citra-hopped Belgian Double IPA, bursting with tropical flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, and hoppy heaven. There’s nothing funky or weird in it, just a whole lotta Citra hops and a fruity Belgian yeast. Clocking in at 9.2% and ~90 IBUs, it is significantly more hoppy than any of our current offerings. We brewed it on election day, and believe that this beer asks us not to choose a Democratic or Republican nation, but instead: a CITRANATION.
Sharing in our excitement for this beer is taproom regular Matt Brassel, who declared on Facebook: “I pledge allegiance to the beer known as Citranation & to the flavor for which it stands. one hop in the brew, 9.2% ABV w/ IBUs & aroma for all.” Amen.
Citranation will be released on Thursday 12/20/2012 (5-9pm) in our taproom and is available for growler fills. Select bars in the Boston area will also be serving it on draft over the next few weeks! Drink it fresh and have a Hoppy Holidays!
