“This recipe is meant to bring the citrus notes of Citra hops and the juicy, tropical flavors and aromas of Mosaic hops into a package that is crisp and refreshing,” says Justin “Gully” Gullickson, co-owner and head brewer at 12 West. “Using only whirlpool hop and dry-hop additions allows us to keep the bitterness low, but it still delivers tons of flavor and aroma that are complemented by the simple grain bill.”
