What began in 2017 as our inaugural 16 oz. can release has become an annual release celebrated each winter. Slopes re-open every year at the start of February.

This 100% Citra Double India Pale Ale is brewed with concentrated Citra Cryo Hops, and Double Dry-Hopped with more Citra at a rate of 3 lbs. per barrel.

The result is a full-bodied 8.0% ABV offering with a clean, dry finish and a tightrope balance of the dank, juicy, and citrusy flavors that made Citra famous.
