BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Traditional throughout Latin America, the guayabera shirt combines style, functionality, form and tradition in it’s four-pocketed design. We at Cigar City feel the same reverence and appreciation for the guayabera that we do for the Citra hop varietal, an ingredient that imparts notes of tangerine, lime and berries to this traditional American Pale Ale. The exclusive use of Citra hops in this beer creates a flavor that’s at once unique and recognizable, while it’s dry, crisp character and moderate alcohol make it as refreshing and functional as a crisp linen guayabera.

Pours a slightly cloudy pale brass yellow with a bit of fine head. Bright lemony citrus in the nose. Taste is light piney citrus with vegetal bitterness at the tail end. Clean finish.

Appearance: Hazy gold color, thin, white head that dissipates quickly

Smell: Big, juicy, fresh, tropical fruit.

Taste: Matches taste. Big, juicy, fresh tropical fruit with a bready, sourdough flavor. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Clean, crisp, fresh mouthfeel.

Overall: I really enjoy this style. I consider Zombie Dust the gold standard. I think I like this better than Zombie Dust. I look forward to doing a side-by-side comparison. Kudos to Cigar City for making another exceptional beer!
