Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: 80x2HopHead on 01-15-2014

Our spring seasonal offering brewed with 100 percent positive vibrations and single-hopped with Citra hops. The presence of the Citra hop is elevated by a clean fermenting lager yeast that allows the subtle Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malts to lay a crisp, bready foundation. The citrus and tropical fruit character of the Citra hop comes from kettle additions followed by a huge dose of ‘em again in the fermenter.

Holy citra! The nose on this thing is sharp and clear: citra was present here. Love it. Flavor carries much of the same floral citrus brightness at first. Then an earthy and grassy thing on the back end comes and lingers. Kind of inky as well. Probably could stand to tone down how thick things are. Regardless of that, I like it. A nice lager that is definitely worth trying. Even if you aren't a hop head.

More breweries should be putting out beers like this. Presently ranked #3 of its style for a reason.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Massive dense and rocky head, great stickage on the glass. Big citrus nose full of blood orange zest, passion fruit and lime pith ... some cracker-like maltiness within. Longer bitter but balanced bite from the hops, full on citrus flavor hits the palate sip after sip. Moderate body keeps things here real drinkable. Mild tobacco and tea tone in the hop flavor, dried grassy graininess opens up in the end.

They hit the bull's eye here, so damn drinkable with a very well rounded Citra hop character that does not even get catty ... not that a touch of that would be a bad thing.

My beer guru shared what he called a hippie beer. Decent looking beer with an excellent smell that had me thinking IPA. Excellent taste without any bad bitter has me savoring the beer. Not sure about cost but enjoyed very much and will look to revisit again as I felt this was an excellent beer.
