So popular that it made it onto our core range, Citra Burst is a light golden India pale ale with resinous pine and citrus flavours and light aroma of citrus zest.

Idiosynkrasie (4671) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy, piney and zesty, hoppy aroma, a grassy touch as well, no malt support. Taste is dry, bitter hoppy, grassy, piney, chalky-zesty, almost a complete lack of fruitiness, weak malty backbone; prickling carbonation. Reminds of some Dutch IPAs. Meh.

50cl flesje via Firma Bier Alcoholpercentage van 5,4% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: goudoranjekleurig met mooie witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: ruikt lekker hoppig, fruitig als grapefruit, bloemig, bittertje Conclusie: niet slecht hou van IPA’s, maar deze mist wat diepgang ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olio (7365) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2015
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden-copper color with a large head. Sweet juicy orange on the nose, lemon peel, faint grapefruits and hops too, slightly herbal. Nutty and biscuit-y flavor, dry malty notes, sweet caramel, orange and some resinous hops. Decent but a bit too nutty for my taste. A disappointment.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from Oddbins in Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. This commences fairly sweet with a light toffee character. The Citra hop emerges but more as a peachy, tangerine type flavour with a slightly resinous edge rather than the Citra notes I have experienced before. Slightly heavy but pretty reasonable.
