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.

Pours a cloudy copper with and aroma of fresh pine with hint of grapefruit. Wow the flavour is a grapefruit hit with a nice malt backing, i love it!. Reminds me of Feral breweries Hop Hog IPA with more malt.

Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter. Finish is medium lasting heavy bittersweet. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Easy, refreshing, great IPA.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 5, 2015
C poco da dire su Brewdog e poco da dire sul Citra. Un unico protagonista di una birra a cui dona i suoi caratteri di agrumi e leggero erbaceo supportato da una discreta maltazione che da equilibrio giusto. Non mi aspettavo dai birrai scozzesi una birra spaventosa ma questa birra buona e si beve con gusto!

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 26, 2015
Keg at BDSB. Aroma is super floral, like a feminine perfume, and not what Id associate with Citra. In the mouth its identifiably BD, with their classic IPA malt character, with some caramalt sweetness that finishes medium dry. Medium carbonation. Flavour of blossom honey, quite jammy apricot fruit, and some pear. Finishes quite sweet for an IPA. Its okay.

Towey1989 (607) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Keg from Brewdog Liverpool. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, mango, apricot and grapefruit. Taste of bitter grapefruit, apricot and mango with some sweetness. Soft carbonation and sticky texture. A citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. The best out of the IPA is dead series.
