New Summer in the Citra Beer Release

Summer in the Citra, Eddyline Brewery’s latest seasonal release is now available across Colorado.   The beer was an original creation by Eddyline founder Mic Heynekamp and brewed first at their New Zealand location.

 “We wanted to combine the unique flavors of New Zealand aroma and flavor hops like Moteuka, with American ingenuity and an aggressive profile of Citra hops.” Says Heynekamp.

 The beer, a smash hit at their New Zealand brewpub has been brought home to Colorado, marking the first time a beer from their New Zealand location has been brought Stateside.

 “Summer in the Citra is bright and well balanced and is ready to take its place alongside our other hop forward beers. With 4 lbs of hops per bbl, we adjusted the water chemistry to decrease the bitterness of the hops, while allowing their floral character to shine.”  Heynekamp explains.

The beer will be the first to show off their new branding, with a fresh new look.

“This will just be a teaser for the new direction of our brand.  We have had a great 2018 so far, and we are looking forward to sharing a few Citra’s with our friends across Colorado and New Zealand.” Says, Heynekamp.

Look for the cans across Colorado in Eddyline’s signature 16oz Tallboy 6-packs and for limited draft at your local beer bar or restaurant.
