A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

Rangi (573) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2014
Big bit of spicy citrus from the aroma up front, flavour is full of grapefruit and more citrus. Clean sharp bitter flavours. A really nice ale this. Reminds me a lot of the stone and wood just for the flavour punch.

freretoc (643) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 28, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde mousse présente, effervescence moyenne, une bière avec un nez assez prégnant sur les agrumes, surtout l’orange, en bouche le citra prend le dessus on a donc un fort goût de citron très fort mais très agéable très frais il y a une petite pointe en fin de bouche de coriandre excellent
