WTOP’s Beer of the Week: Bluejacket Lost Weekend Citra IPA

WASHINGTON — Who says you can’t teach a not-so-old local favorite a new trick?

WTOP’s Brennan Haselton is joined by Neighborhood Restaurant Group Beer Director and Food and Wine Sommelier of the Year Greg Engert to talk about Bluejacket Lost Weekend Citra IPA — in cans — for the latest edition of WTOP’s Beer of the Week.

Quick facts: 

  • Brewery: Bluejacket Brewery, Washington D.C.
  • Brewery Description: A deep, golden-hued IPA exclusively hopped and dry-hopped with Citra. It’s bold, bright and juicy, offering a fruit-forward array of tangerine, peach and lychee fruit, underscored by notes of grass and earth.
  • ABV: 7.0 percent
  • Greg’s pairing suggestions: Seafood! Try it with sushi, smoked salmon, tuna steaks on the grill, fish tacos, lobster and crabs.
