Upslope Welcomes Citra Pale Ale to Year-Round Lineup

After eight years, Upslope is changing things up with a new year-round can. Upslope Citra Pale Ale will replace the original Pale Ale in the year-round lineup and will be available in 12-ounce six-packs, twelve-packs, Mix Boxes, and permanently on draft in both of our tap rooms.

“Our commitment to celebrating creativity and exploring new styles has led to the evolution of our first and flagship brew,” the brewery said.

For several years, Upslope brewers have worked on perfecting the Citra Pale Ale recipe. It has previously been released as an installment in the Upslope Tap Room Series, and quickly became a customer and staff favorite in our tap rooms. The proven popularity of this beer with its distinct juicy hop character delivered by the Citra hops has led to this evolution and the beer ultimately finding its way into a year-round can.

“The decision to retire the one that started it all and introduce a new style to our lineup in its place comes from our dedication to experimentation and creativity,” said Upslope Founder, Matt Cutter. “This beer represents our best foot forward and the spirit of what happens when we continue to hone our craft, keep our sights on the future and listen to what our fans want.”

Upslope’s Citra Pale Ale is an American style pale ale which prominently features Citra hops, delivering pungent grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas with a semi-dry finish. Juicy, floral notes imparted by the hops pair with the light malt character to balance it out. Like its predecessor, the Citra Pale Ale comes in at 5.8 percent ABV.
