This was the one standout on this brewery’s beer menu. It is hoppy but balanced, it has some spice and citrus.

On tap at the brewpub. Description claims use of Citra, Centennial, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops. Hazy mango in color. Pine from the Simcoe and citrus/mango/apricot from the Citra. Warm citrusy, fruit, caramel malts. Not so sure I dig the Citra hop. Have tried in other beers with the same feeling - seems to be hard to tame, at least for my liking. Tended to takeover the bitterness and make it a little more harsh and less refined. Good presence on the palate.
