Wow! What a great beer. I wish they made this consistently in the spring-summer months. It's a very simple concept; a lager with a substantial amount of citra hops. If you like citra, you'll love this. Doesn't pack the malt/booze package that a citra IPA would. I would label this as a solid hop head lawnmower beer. You could knock back a six of this over a warm summer evening. Otter Creek should really be marketing this as a summer beer.

On draft at Road Trip, Port Jeff Station, NY.

Poured a clear brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light citric hop with a touch of pale malt.

The flavor offered a citrusy and herbal hop with a light round pale malt sweetness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty hop forward lager.

Bottle poured into a dogfish spiegelau glass.

Super light honey pilsner look. Tons of Citra in the smell with some sweet malt and other tropical fruit flavors. Taste is a hop charged lager for sure. Certainly a new style for me. Still very good and crisp. A very nice refreshing summer beer.
