Oliphant Mothra vs. Mothra Citra Lager

Oliphant Mothra vs. Mothra Lager with Citra hops, 4.8% ABV. Oliphant Brewing, Somerset, WI.

Clear, bright yellow, slim white head.

Aroma is bursting with lemon and pine, tangerine, grapefruit and lime. Big-time citrus nose. Beautiful.

In the mouth, it's every bit of bright, bold Citra refreshment that you want. Very lean, light body, just the minimum malt. A clean, smooth lager that seeks to showcase the Citra hop's sunshine-y flavor, and it does. Juicy mouthfeel, classic combination of hops and malt.

Delicious. You could crush a lot of these crowlers in the summertime, floating your boat down Apple River. Or any river you choose.
