As if Bob’s Your Uncle wasn’t enough to get you down here this weekend, we are also giving you a new batch of Citra Pale and a new IPA called Flavor Country! On top of all that, did you know that the Seahawks are playing their first preseason game on Sunday night? We’ll have it on the screen, naturally. Game time is at 5pm.
Citra Pale –
Citra is one of the most beloved hops, and doesn’t need a supporting cast of characters. This makes it a perfect fit for the single hop treatment. We left it alone with a clean yeast, pale malt, and lots of oat for body. Loaded with tropical fruit, lime and grapefruit notes, but refreshing as they come with a bright, clean finish. This is your hoppy session beer of choice this weekend, at 5.3%.
Flavor Country IPA –
We decided to push the envelope with this little number. We kept the ABV at a reasonable level at 6.6%, but packed in a resinous, fruity hopbill of Simcoe, Cashmere and Calypso. We added a ridiculous amount of dry hop to this one, and the whole mess sits on top of a grain bill that includes pilsner, unmalted wheat, flaked oats and light caramel malts. British yeast leaves this beer hazy and stone fruity, with a round body. Welcome to Flavor Country.
