COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Scratch 31, the brothers and the brewers decided to revisit one of our favorite sweet spots – IPA – and have some fun with hop flavors. Dubbed ‘Citra of Brotherly Love’ in honor of Philly Beer week, Scratch #31 has generous amounts of Apollo, Cascade and Citra hops. This is our first use of Citra hops, which is known for an intense grapefruit aroma and flavor.

While showcasing the intense Citra flavor we added additional bitterness with Apollo and Chinook hops as well. Scratch #31 went through a bed of Chinook hops in the hopback and was dry-hopped with Cascade and Citra hops.

Scratch #31 will be showcased at events throughout Philly Beer Week. Also, be on the lookout for Scratch #31 in firkins and pins, which were aged in new wine barrels for about a week before kegging.

Bottle from PUB’N via an intermediary. Pours turbid deep gold with big 3 finger sticky white head. Nose is heavy hops, florals, yeasty malt, grapefruit. Tastes very grapefruity, citric, with a rich malt presence. Smooth finish which gets very close to grapefruit juice with some florals, and is very enjoyable. Make this one year round, guys, and call it Ruby Red Napalm Apocalypse.

Draught at TND: Aroma of hops, citrus, tropical fruit, grass, tangerine, nectarine, pine, and Citra hops. Poured amber/orange in color with a small to medium-sized, lightly creamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of Citra hops, tropical fruit, tangerine, slight pine, and a hint of crystal malt. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Tropical fruit, hops, pine, and slight crystal malt finish is dry. 7.4%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Named "Citra of Brotherly Love" @ Johnny Brendas bar in Fishtown for a Troegs Philly Beer week event on 06.06.10. Darling of an IPA, upfront citrus nose, full bodied amber. Definitely the type of IPA Philadelphia beer geeks enjoy. Happy to have drank too much of it @ JB.
