This was a pale ale made with Citra hops and gruit, a term for a mixture of herbs that was used for flavoring beer before the common use of hops. It had a peachy aroma, cloudy orange color, not much head, and a slight piney taste of hops. There was also something very familiar about this beer, but it took several sips to realize that it tasted like sangria. Sure enough, this beer was aged in wine barrels to give it a very unique flavor.
