Westbrook re-brewing Citrus Ninja Exchange


“Better late than never,” Westbrook Assistant Brewer Mike Levin tweeted Thursday, accompanied by a photo teasing the re-brewing of the Westbrook/Charleston Beer Exchange collaboration Citrus Ninja Exchange.

Citrus Ninja, which was last on shelves about a year ago, is a 9% double IPA brewed with a heaping helping of citrus fruits. Since it was first brewed in 2011, the beer has undergone a couple of changes. The initial release was single-hopped with Cascade and then saw an addition of 50 pounds of fresh grapefruit, then dry-hopped an additional four times. The 2012 release had a different malt bill and a blend of American and New Zealand hop.

What’s in store for the 2013 edition? We’ll find out in a few weeks.
