Lagunitas Brewing Company – CitrusSinensis Pale Ale – ABV 7.7 percent – IBU 49 – 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass
Product Description – We took some fresh Sanguinello Blood oranges, juiced ’em, concentrated that juice (without heat) and threw it into a wheatier version of our New Dogtown Pale Ale. The end result? A refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!
Beer Dads Review
I’m a big fan of Lagunitas. A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale is one of my favorite go to beers and I almost always have a few bottles in the fridge. So when I saw CitruSinensis Pale Ale at my local liquor store I had to grab a six-pack.
The beer pours a hazy golden color with a decent head. When you smell it you get a stong burst of citrus with some hops in the background.
When it comes to taste, it’s all about the blood orange. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if you like citrus, but personally I found the blood orange a little overpowering.
All in all it’s a decent beer, but the lack of balance keeps it from reaching its full potential.
