COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Citra hops lend their name to this interpretation of a Golden Ale. But thatís not all they bring to the party. Their striking citrus aroma and thirst-quenching flavor are the perfect pairing for soft malt notes. Together they create a beer thatís full in flavor and uniquely refreshing.

A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden straw color with a fluffy white head. S: Floral hop notes with some subtle citrus and fruity hop aromas. Some light malt notes of bread and biscuit. A light tropical note, but not super fragrant overall. T: The flavor has a bit more punch to it, but not substantially different. Citrus and tropical fruit hop notes with a lot of floral flavors as well. Some sweet bread and toasted malt, too. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: While not an amazing beer, this is a good one to drink on a hot day.
