MIDNATTSSOL
IPA

An American-style IPA (India Pale Ale) featuring Citra, Centennial and Chinook hops.  Won a Silver Medal at the 2013 Door County Homebrew Festival.  

Midnattssol (Midnight Sun in Swedish) is an American-style IPA (India Pale Ale) highlighting American hops, particularly one of the newest hybrids, Citra. Citra has strong bittering and brings a delicious mango and citrus aroma and flavor to this beer. It is a medium body beer, with just enough bracing hop bitterness to balance the malt. But the real story here is the hops. To read more about Citra hops, follow this link.
