Year of New Beer: Lil Citra Monster, Mirror Twin Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 08/05/2020

If you're looking for a slightly lighter, more flavorful haze for your poolside shenanigans, this may be the winner. Still 5.5% ABV, so it's not exactly a session ale, but it is a bit friendlier than its big brother. Plenty of orange peel on the nose, with hints of grapefruit in the background. Straightforward in the flavor department as the citrus presents lightly juicy with zero bitterness. Just a bit of herbal grasses on a slightly dry finish. Not a ton of depth here, but that's not the intent. I think they nailed their objective here...approachable and somewhat crushable.
