Armed 'n Citra

Armed 'n Citra is an American Pale Ale that I was fortunate enough to sample at the source--Toronto's Rainhard Brewing Co. Rainhard is an out of the way brewery that took an unfortunate amount of time to reach via transit, but once I got there, I was pretty pleased.

A 'n C contains 5.2% alcohol, and clocks in at a respectable 45 IBUs. It has a potent nose--rich in bitterness and tropical fruit notes. The flavour runs along the same lines, with passion fruit and mango, as well as a solidly bitter, dry finish.

If you're in Toronto, you could do a lot worse to take the trek to Rainhard Brewery, and if you get there, it's well worth it to down a pint or two of Armed 'n Citra. It's a really solid offering from a really solid beer shop.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
