Oceanside Rye IPA / Yorkshire Lad Rye

Another split batch of beer to provide cannon fodder for the SCHF. The Oceanside proved to be very popular with a sweet flavor from the large dose of Citra in the finish.

Special Instructions / Notes: 

The beer was boiled as a single batch with all the same treatments up until chilling. The beer was whirlpooled as normal. The first half (Yorkshire) was chilled with my usual chilling rig - kettle -> pump -> CFC (with ground water) -> IC (beer running through the coil that's sitting in an ice bath) -> fermenter

Once the first half was chilled the pump and chill water was shut off. The Citra hops were then added to the remaining beer in the kettle and the beer was whirlpooled again for 10 minutes. After the second whirlpool, the chilling rig was fired up again and the Oceanside was chilled down to 64F.

Beer notes - the Yorkshire could use a little more bitterness or maybe a dry hop in the keg. It tastes good, but needs a bit of oomph. The Oceanside has a more bracing bitterness, but also a very strong sweet flavor that I suspect is from the large dose of Citra in the finish.
