Bright w/Citra is a clean and elegant showcase for a notoriously delicious hop - Citra! It is crafted with a simple malt bill and fermented with clean American Ale yeast to create a flavor profile that is more a function of its vibrant fresh ingredients than an expression of yeast character. Bright w/Citra’s aroma is a citrus explosion. The taste follows suit with notes of orange juice, grapefruit, and tangerine with a gentle finish. She is dry, soft, and adequately bittered resulting in a very approachable and thirst quenching IPA.
The majority of our pale hoppy offerings get their flavor from a mixture of yeast esters, hop oils, and hop compound biotransformation. In contrast, the Bright series was created to put forth the pure essence of each hop variety so we can enjoy a pure and unadulterated hop experience. Opening a can of Bright and sniffing inside the lid stirs daydreams of walking through a sunny valley in Yakima, Washington around the time of hop harvest, with the scent of fresh hop oils filling the air. Citra is an incredible hop with a rich fruity profile, and presented here it tastes just like tangerines.
Bright w/Citra is a live beer and is best kept cold and enjoyed fresh, within 6-8 weeks of canning.
