Westbrook Citrus Ninja Exchange 2012
Westbrook Citrus Ninja Exchange 2012 American Double/Imperial IPA brewed in collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. A mix of fresh grapefruit, lemons, limes, and oranges is added to the boil, brewed with both citrus flesh and peel. Needless to say there is a ton of citrus flavors all over this beer. A good dose of almost syrupy malts mix with a lot of grapefruit. I am confident the other fruits are adding a good bit to this, but in the end it is the grapefruit that clearly dominates. I was totally surprised with how sweet this was, maybe the addition of the fruit itself added to the overall sweetness in the end.
