5 of 5

I had a party with 50 beer drinking guests that had 4 choices, this beer, pale ale, juicy ipa and a fruity blonde ale.
this was the first one kicked in roughly 4hrs.

at first their premnission was that it was going to be like a Genny cream ale. once the amarillo shined through they completely disregarded their past experience with cream ale.
fermented a week, put it on 15psi gas , served a week later, gone 4hrs

Didn't have any amarillo so subbed citra.. wow. My new favorite little beer.
The citra really shines through and honest to god tastes like a hint of those gummy peach rings.
