A Note on This Beer
Laughing Dog Pure Bred Citra single hop ale brings you an unadulterated taste of one of the hottest tropical hops right now. Recently developed, Citras are the hops brewers look to first for creating deep tropicality.
Citra Hops are loaded with Alpha Acids making them prime candidates for adding dense essences of passion fruit, guavas and a punch of bitterness. They seize the spotlight in Pure Bred’s bone dry Pale Ale base, providing crisp fruit elements to a substantial 6.2% ABV bite. With its clear hop focus, Pure Bred Citra is miraculously suitable for both careful study or long days full of refreshing recreation.
The glass lights up with luxury, an amber gold hue and velvety layer of creamy foam. Undeniable passion fruit juice aromas beckon from afar, accompanied by notes of fresh pine wood, and crackers. Indulge in a sip to release the distinct black pepper and musky mangoes of Citra Hops. Light and pale biscuity malts make a brief interlude before Citra Hops make a resurgence on a quenching grapefruity bitter finish.
Laughing Dog originally intended to make Pure Bred a one time series of single hop Pale Ales, but the Citra version had so many vocal (and threatening!) fans that Laughing Dog decided to bring the original recipe back each year as a seasonal. Pure Bred Citra is a crash course in hops that doesn’t break the bank.
