Prominently featuring Citra hops, our Citra Pale Ale delivers pungent grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas on the nose with a semi-dry finish. Juicy notes imparted by the hops pair with the light caramel malt character to balance this drinkable, “go-to” American Pale Ale.

Drizly Expert Notes

Upslope Citra Pale Ale is a citra hop forward pale ale produced by the master brewers based out of Boulder, Colorado. Everything at Upslope is brewed to represent all that is great about living along the Rocky Mountains. They are beers brewed with melted snow caps, meant to be enjoyed after a long day of outdoor adventure. Be it a day of skiing, hiking, biking, or some new fangled extreme sport, Upslope wants you to crack a can and take a load off, taking note of how great life is when lived to the peak. This pale ale is brewed to be easy drinking, but with a big hop aroma from the fan favorite hope that exudes citrus and happiness. Citra Pale is meant to be easily accessible and imbibed straight out of the can, but sometimes we can’t help ourselves but pour it into a glass in order to get that big aroma that we want to so badly. If you do choose to pour it, maybe choose an environmentally sound, reusable water bottle as your choice container and note the vibrant gold color and beautiful white lacing. The Citra hop presence is the first thing that strikes your nostrils and they do it in a big way. Huge blasts of grapefruit skins and grapefruit flesh stand at the forefront, followed with hints of redwood trees and a freshly fallen tree up high in the Rockies. The flavor starts with a tinge of toasted malt, but is dominated by those big citrus flavors of orange peels, more grapefruit, mangoes, and that dry mountain bitterness that rounds everything out in the finish. If you can’t actually drink this in the mountains, at least it will taste as if you are at the peak of the range looking down at the stunning countryside. Upslope Citra Pale Ale is made for the outdoor life. It’s meant to be brought on camping trips, ski adventures, bike trails, sunset hikes, or sunrise surfs. It’s a beer that can pair with all of your favorite outdoor treats. Try it with a slow cooked tri-tip served on top of a grilled baguette with a bit of salsa verde drizzled on top. Enjoy it with a bag of jerky, a handful of trail mix, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
