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.

Bottle. Mouthwatering fruity aroma, grapefruits are dominating. Grapefruit and orange palate, but this is also on the sweet side. Very seducive.

Bottle I bought at Utobeer, London, shared with Dutchdrebus at his place to celibrate his birthday. Slightly hazy orange color, decent off-white head. Smell citrus, hops, bitter and grapefruit. Taste fruity, grapefruit, citrus, bitter and hops. Soft but medium carbonation, medium body. Nice beer.

IPA Is Dead tasting in bottle at home with Sev. Cheers Craig : ) Pours a deep amber colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit and mango. Juicy fruit flavours of passion fruit and mango again with caramel and well masked alcohol. Nicely bitter. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. I like it.

0,33 l bottle, Utobeer, London.
Deep golden one with a fine creamy tan-off white head that stays with laces on the surface till the end of the slips. Grape, resin and flowers in the niose, light honeyish malt. Oily body, good balanced tastes of resin and grape, grapefruit, orange and lime, mild malt in the background gives the wawes for the huge ammount of citra-cones. Nice one;-)

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere. Rated on 14.04.2011
Tasted in a vertical with other three Dead IPAs, this was best. Fresh and not too sweet, feels like a good American IPA.

Bottle that Craig left with me, consumed at friends Saturday 29th October 2011, cheers Craig. Gold in colour, slightly cloudy with a slim white head. Nose is predominantly set and malty, citrus with a dab of pine and I also get a light tropical touch. Really good. A8 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Licht troebel oranje bier, licht beige schuimkraag. Veel frisse citrus in de neus, grapefruit, sinaasappel, zoete malt tonen. Vrij forse smaak, bitter, zoete tonen van mout. Beetje ongebalanceerd, maar wel erg lekker.

Bottle from brewdog.com. one of my favourite brewdogs to date. Pours a thick hazy amber colour with medium head. Tonnes of tropical fruit aroma. Citrus fruits and a thick texture. Really stunning beer.
