On tap at BD brewery. I liked this. No doubt that citra hops are involved, based on aroma alone. Not overpowering in bitterness, but pleasantly showcasing the citra hop's signature characteristics. Thumbs up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep copper with a white head. A bunch of sweet caramel with candied fruit hops. Too sugary sweet for me.

Bottle from The Beer Cellar online "Kiwi Unleashed" (April 2014). Clear amber/orange, medium off-white head, massive citrus hop aroma, high citrus/pine bitterness, rich sweet malt, well balanced, thick texture, full body, long bitter finish. Really nice.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a thin white head, plenty of fruit and hops in the aroma, taste is light at first with fruit which then leads to a dry finish.

The citra hops create huge citrus fruity aroma - can be almost smelt at arms length! Similar taste is provided by the hops along with full bodied malt and warming high alcohol. Carbonated and medium length bittersweet aftertaste. Tastes great and looks just as good. Clear pale to amber body with nice lacing. Very enjoyable, especially on american independence day! This beer is hard to get your hands on, so if you get the opportunity, buy it

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 A solid example of the style. Have enjoyed this brew a number of times and I’m always satisfied. I’m unable to ID the hops used in the "Kiwi" labeled version but whatever they are they are good and tasty.

Draft at the source. Clear amber color, almost flat. Aroma of toasted caramel. Taste is peppery burnt caramel.

A big favourite of mine. With the Citra APA there’s loads of passionfruit on the nose and overall a very enjoyable, easily drinkable drop.
