India Pale Ale
Guide Post: Citra, Simcoe
For the second interpretation of Guide Post we selected ingredients from both near and far that we've developed a deep appreciation for throughout the years. Wyermann® Pilsner malt is a standout amongst 2-row base barley malt. Utilized in beers such as Vicinity, this continental German malt enhances both body and mouthfeel in the finished beer, setting the stage for two hops that represent substantial leaps forward in American hop breeding: Citra and Simcoe.
Pouring a glowing hazy golden yellow, Citra, Simcoe Guide Post packs a citrus punch upfront, delivering notes of grapefruit juice and orange zest which are closely followed by welcomed piney and floral tones. Bright and juicy, with a creamy mouthfeel contributed by the Wyermann® Pilsner malt, Citra, Simcoe Guide Post finishes gently sweet with just enough bitterness to round out each sip.
