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.

Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are biscuit, grain and caramel with mixed tropical fruit and earthy apple. A bit fusty with hints of white grape. Flavours are sweet grain and brown sugar with bready yeast. Restrained tropical fruit with woody pine and spices. Toasted with some resinous citrus bite on the finish. It grew on me.

Clear copper, small off-white head that dissipates leaving very little lacing. Aroma is mild, citric and floral. Strong citrus flavours, particularly grapefruit, some tropical fruit, more malt than expected, a little toffee and a touch earthy, but still pretty clean. Floral notes and some pine. A little sweetness leads to a strong bitter finish. Very nice.

Bright clear gold beer, untidy small white head. Palate is light and smooth, semi dry, light fine carbonation. Light smooth malt, very light dry cream. Hops are spicy ripe orange with light floralness, Finishes light and dry. Drinkable but slightly clunky.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2014
500ml. Brilliant gold capped with a tenacious rocky white foam. Buttered pine, fennel and liquorice-alluding aroma with more than a slurp of sickbowl. Somewhat bilious and saline with an odd pasteurised-like Scottish malt richness undermining the hop. Marmalade and oak reminiscent of a GK supermarket ’IPA’. Minimal Citra character. I like the processed smoked cheese oatmeal flavour but it doesn’t belong in this beer. Way overrated.

Garrold (1135) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Lightly hazed, pale amber. Sticky, bubbly, white head. Slightly fusty, buttery aroma. No burst of hops. Or anything, really. Taste is dry and fairly bitter. Palate is oily, with soft carbonation. Finish is bitter, with a little spicy dryness.
