Lagunitas Brewing Company (Petaluma, California) has announced that CitruSinensis Pale Ale has officially returned and this time around it will be available all summer long in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles.
With a name derived from the Latin scientific name for blood orange (citrus x sinensis), CitruSinensis is basically a slightly imperialized, “wheatier version of [Lagunitas’] DogTown Pale Ale” that is dosed with – you guessed it – blood oranges. To make sure this blood orange infusion influences the beer’s aroma and flavor as much as possible, the brewers took fresh Sanguinello blood oranges, “juiced ’em, concentrated ’em (sans heat), and then threw ’em” in during secondary fermentation. This approach results in “a refreshingly hopped pale-ish ale with a huge citrus burst!”
CitruSinensis Pale Ale is rolling out now and will be available throughout the summer months of 2018. You can expect to find this Seasonal release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-friendly retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, California, Illinois, Washington and throughout the rest of Lagunitas’ distribution network. Prost!
