COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pils Lager
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.

Bottle. Hazy golden body, big white head with decent retention. Sweet aroma of peaches and orange caramel, sugar, candies. Taste of pine, grapefruit zest, orange candies, a touch of herbs. Ok, not sure about the style though.

Bottles on clearance in Fl. Strong orange aroma. Light bitterness but lingers. Hoppy. Light colored, doesn’t look like much and to me, didn’t really stand out taste wise either.

LinusStick (3201) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Very tasty beer. Thought it was an IPA at first. Aroma was fiercely hoppy with grapefruit rind and a slight graininess. Pour was a nice hazy light gold with tons of rising bubbles and a one finger white head. Taste was all hops in this one. Strongly bitter with a lager backbone. Hops are lemon and grapefruity with a dry bitter finish. Good carbonation.

Stuart, Fl. - Total Wine & More - - 12 oz bottle. Slight hazy medium golden pour, white head, light lacing. Fresh white grape aroma, hints of grapefruit.. Flavor has some honey notes, some yeasty accents, a touch of mango sweet fruitiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Very decent.

Otter Creek Citra Mantra holds up well but suffers from a bit of name misnomer. Bright yellow pour with a frothy white head that holds up well. Aroma is fresh and mild tropical and pine. The taste is big on pine -- really like an IPA -- with a bit if tropical fruit in the background. I’ve come to expect beers with Citra (as in Citra hops) in the name to have prominent tropical notes. The pine is really out there, though, and not really balanced either. Not real sure where it comes from either since they claim single hop. Citra Mantra is not a bad brew in its own right, but not the light lager made with Citra you might expect.

jgb9348 (5550) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Clear golden coloured body with the slightest bit of haze and a nice, thinnish two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of very nice and fragrant tropical fruit and citrus hops with a smooth but noticeable malt essence. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavour at first with a good kick of the hops, but shows some malt elements, a touch of effervescence from the yeast and a good complex herbal and spice characteristic at the end. Aftertaste is nice and complex, especially for a lager, with some very fresh hop notes throughout. Overall, a nice and subdued beer that still shows a lot of flavour and especially complexity, for a lager. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Alexandria, Virginia on 03-May-2016 for US$1,67 sampled at home in Washington on 18-May-2016.

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Hazy gold orange with thick white head. Clean citrus nose, smells nice. Bitter, then citrus funk bite. Short finish. Refreshing and pretty good.

rjplumer (970) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2016
Crisp citrus pine aroma. Golden body with a light haze and two fingered white head. Bitter start but ends with a mild lemon tart sweetness. Has a mild bread character that smooths it out.
