More than simply a hybrid of IPA and lager styles, India Pale Lager juxtaposes a sturdy hop presence with lighter, crisper drinkability. At 5.5-percent alcohol, Gate City’s Citras Maximus is a bit more full-bodied and ale-like than many, featuring Citra as the single hop in multiple additions.
The result is a beer that pours a pale gold, with a lacy white head, and refreshing citrus and tropical flavors and aromas that give way to a soft, lingering bitterness in the finish. Overall, it’s a nice transition from spring to summer sipping.
The IPA and lager mash-up in Citras Maximus makes it equally easy to pair with lighter fare like chicken and fish or spicy stuff like Tex-Mex and curry.
