Manor Hill Brewing
Ellicott City, MD
When I buy a beer named Citra Splendor, I have certain expectations that it is going to be citrusy. Like, it’s right in the name. So I can happily report that Citra Splendor delivers on my expectations. Though, to be honest, this is a very odd beer. The aroma of clementines and the taste of tangy orange juice is tasty, to be sure, but it’s almost like Manor Hill has made a parody of over-hopped American pale ales. But I have to admit I liked its audaciousness. And its bitter, pithy aftertaste. It’s different, but different is pretty good.
