Citra Pale Ale Coming Your Way
The 90s are so in right now. Think resurgence of neon high-tops. Flip phones becoming hip again. This Saved by the Bell Reunion on Jimmy Fallon. So, it’s only fitting that for our seasonal release, we’d be working hard on a style that, circa ’95, got every craft beer newbie in this area hooked. Back then, it was Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale that was the ticket, says Brew Master Brian. But now we’ve got a PA lineup all our own and — drum roll, please — Citra Pale Ale is coming at you today.
“It’s a really dry, light-bodied beer with just a tiny bit of sweetness,” Brian says, adding that the 5.5% brew is dry-hopped with a pound per barrel of citra, the “buzziest” beer flower of the day, and one that’s“deserving of all its praise.”
So what, exactly, is the big deal?
“Picture walking through a California orange grove at harvest time,” Brian says of the beverage’s sensory impact.“Or the mist you get when you peel back an orange.”
The ale will be on tap in our tasting room beginning at noon, as the first in a six-new-beers-in-six-weeks series.
Watch this space for updates on the others and, in the meantime, feel nostalgic with this list of 90s fashion trends.
