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.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/10/12. Clear pale golden with a decent frothy white head. Thin nose with pale malts, muted hops and light fruit tones apple being evident.

freretoc (581) - 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

johndoughty (3890) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange with a small head. Quite lively upon opening. Fruity with hops alongside. Punches well above its weight. This brewery is certainly consistent in producing interesting and drinkable beers.

Ragnampiza (349) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 18, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra+ (bottled on 12-05-2014). Rich golden yellow, quite clear, with a nice, creamy and persistent bright white head. Delicate but powerful nose, plenty of tropical and citrus notes (blood orange, mandarine, papaya and mango, light white graes), some white bread/biscuits presence, very hoppy and slightly piney overall. Pretty high level of bitterness, some light malt/resin astringency upfront, but definitely juicy and dank taste. Citrus, pine needles, just a hint of nuts. Perfect level of dryness, way too easy to drink, rather refreshing. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Very, very good.
