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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- Pale golden body with crystal-clear transparency. Soapy bone white head sits on top with some sticky lacing left behind.

S- Lots of tropical citrus, huge hop aroma. Toasted sweet malts come through just enough, similar to a pilsner malt aroma.

T- Big hop flavor continues to come through with just the slightest hint of toasted malts to come through, similar to the aroma. Some tropical fruits come through on the finish, with hops all the way through.

M- Easy to drink, but actually fuller in the body than I would have thought. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, easy drinking.

O- Really nice hoppy lager. Just a ridiculous amount of hop aroma and flavor and great use of citra hops.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finer head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with great visibility and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Grapefruit, lemon, and citrus with bready and sweet pilsner malts.

Taste: Nice tart lemon flavor and tropical hops followed by chewy and sweet pilsner malts and a little tingly bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, refreshing, chewy, light, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Draft or bottle and this beer is solid either way.

A- Hazy yellow with a thick creamy white head. The head fades quickly but laces nicely.

S- Citra, Cita, Citra!

T- Citra hops upfront followed by a grainy pilsner malt taste. It's well balanced for an overoy hopped pilsner.

M- Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O- Overall a very tastey and well balanced. If you like Citra hops, you'll love this beer.
