West Coast Citra IPA | R.Shea Brewing
Style: IPA - American
Description: This West Coast IPA has been through quiet an evolution since I first homebrewed it over 5 years ago. At first it was all about clarity and bitterness per the style. But as we introduced it to 'The Valley' location in 2014, we just kept tweaking it. We found out that a slight addition of wheat kept it on the hazy side which really magnified the hop aroma and flavor. We also just kept adding late addition hops to keep it super-juicy. What we have now is a 'highly evolved' form of the original West Coast IPA's intent with subtle branches into the NEIPA's but without the water chemistry voodoo while still retaining the bitterness of a true West Coast IPA.
