BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lagunitas Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.90%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced 'em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!

Excellent IPA! Very tasty and well done. This is not a fruit beer, which I am no fan. A celebration of citrus with hops. Highly recommended!

This is what a fruity hoppy beer should taste like. The citrus is there but not dominant, the flavors are balanced and not one dimensional. Definitely recommended

Pours a warm amber color with nice two finger head out of the bottle. Aromas of bright juicy citrus like tangerine, orange, grapefruit, a little lemon zest. Taste is citrus hop forward, bitter with a little sweetness, juicy orange with grape fruit and some grass, a bit of spice. Big bitterness especially on the finish, tastes like a juicy IPA. Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Lagunitas Brewing Company "CitruSinensis"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, coded "086 8 2 2731 2046"
$2.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: What a horrible hot and humid day it is here. Mucky is the word. My clothes are sticking to me and a bead of sweat just ran down my back and straight through my ass crack. I feel like I'm in New Orleans. Hopefully this CitruSinensis will bring me some relief. It's a clear deep gold except for the sediment floating around. It doesn't appear to be yeast, and might in fact be fruit pulp but I don't know. It doesn't hurt the appearance though, and in fact gives it an interesting quality. It looks beautiful, and the creamy cap of bright white foam above it doesn't hurt either. In the nose it's citrus-hoppy. It's pretty bright without being overwhelming - nice. I'd guess all of the usual suspects, Amarillo, Citra, maybe Cascade,and maybe Mandarina Bavaria. Who knows, and who cares? It's nice. On to the flavor... more of the same but with a bit of a sweet edge from the malt, and a touch of acidity. It finishes dry, citrusy, hoppy, and firmly bitter. Wow, I just noticed this is 7.5% ABV, it doesn't seem like it. I don't particularly notice any wheat to the malt, it's just a straightforward golden maltiness. Nor do I detect any blood orange juice specifically (it's listed on the label), but it's got some definite orange to it, but also some other fruitiness as well... some mild grapefruit, apple, berry... I'm not sure. Wow, it's really nice, and it does seem to be hitting the spot. The glass has beautiful lacing left behind, and I've still got some foam on the surface, it's broken and thin, but more than just a collar. In the mouth it's medium-light in body, or at least it appears to be, perhaps because of the light acidity. A delicate crispness livens it as well. Overall, this is one of the best summer beers I've ever had. It's not just fruity, but hoppy as well. It's very nicely rounded and balanced even at 7.5% which is pretty amazing. Man I wish I'd bought more of these. This is the perfect beer for a summer party when everyone else is drinking crap and you've got a sixer of these stashed in a cooler in the trunk of your car. Excellent! Worth seeking out.

Bottled 3/2/18, consumed 5/2/18

L: Clear orange, a tiny bit of miniscule particles floating around, ok head, nice thick bands of lacing.

S & T: Bright citrus all the way, terrific. A lot of orange, some orange peel, lemon, and grapefruit notes to round it out. Taste backs up the aroma with some sweet malt backbone.

F: Medium-light, solid but nice and easy bitterness.

O: Name says it all, and the beer completely lives up to it. If this is in any way different from what you were expecting, your expectations are all screwed up.

Anybody that rates this below a 4 is a fucking idiot! Normally I would buy Stone's Ruination 2.0, but this shit is so good that it won me over!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Bright clear yellow color with good head and lacing. Indeed it has a pleasant citrus taste and smell. It went very nicely with grilled burgers!

Pours a clear, light orange color with about a finger or so of white, fluffy, head. Smell is lemon out of the bottle, then orange, a little malt. Taste is a bright orange, a little grapefruit pith, hint of lemon, and a mild amount of backbone. Medium body, some pleasant bitterness. Overall, very solid APA though leaning a bit high on the ABV.
