Guayabera Citra Pale Ale – Cigar City Brewing

From Cigar City Brewing in Tampa Bay Florida comes their “Guayabera Citra Pale Ale”.  The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of citrus, herbal and floral hops and a sweetness.  The flavour is of citrus, melon, herbal, resin, hint of dank hops, bitterness and some bready malts.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 50.  This Pale Ale is absolutely a great example of what I like in a beer of the style.

Commercial Description:  Traditional throughout Latin America, the guayabera shirt combines style, functionality, form and tradition in it’s four-pocketed design.  We at Cigar City feel the same reverence and appreciation for the guayabera that we do for the Citra hop varietal, an ingredient that imparts notes of tangerine, lime and berries to this traditional American Pale Ale.  The exclusive use of Citra hops in this beer creates a flavor that’s at once unique and recognizable, while it’s dry, crisp character and moderate alcohol make it as refreshing and functional as a crisp linen guayabera.
