COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pacific North West of America is home to the Citra hop. America is not just about cheer leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and Citra is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A relatively new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with brash citrus, grapefruit orange, hints of resinous pine and touches of black currant. Devilishly moreish. I am a little bit too obsessed with this beer for my own good.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Crispy palate. Orange and orange marmalade. Trace of grapefruit. Minerally sharpness. Gets a little sweeter toward the semi dry finish. Refreshing fruity IPA.

Bottle shared by esp0r July 2011, thanks a lot. Hazy dark orange, big beige head. Aroma of citrus - of course - and grass, pine, orange peel. Taste of citrus fruits, caramel, hazelnut I think, and tea. Pretty good stuff!

GBZ59 (1137) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - JUL 30, 2012
Botella de 330ml. Vaso Shaker. (Notas). Color ámbar anaranjado claro y apariencia algo velada. Espuma amarillenta, de burbuja mediana y bastante buena retención. Intensos aromas y sabores de lúpulos y cítrico. Cuerpo medio y moderada carbonatación. Textura oleosa pero ligera. Una cerveza muy refrescante que hace añorarla incluso antes de terminarla. 330ml bottle. Shaker glass. (From my notes). Light orangish amber color. Chill haze. Yellowish,medium bubbled, froth. Fairly good retention. Intense hops & citrics both in flavors & aromas. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Texture is oily but light. A very refreshing beer been missed before finish it.

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with a medium sized off-white head. Leaving a fair lacing. Nose of grapefruit, lemon and caramel. Sweet flavor with citrus, orange and grapefruit and caramel. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and decent bitter.
