Geiserich (3343) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from beerhunter111, many thanks: Orange color, hazy, off-white head. Aroma is very fruity/hoppy, grapefruit, orange peel, resin, mango, tropical fruits. Flavor is malty, light sweetness, light caramel note, hoppiness of resin, citrus, citrus peel, tropical fruits. Dry, medium bitterness. Decent.

morri (198) - NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Nesodden. Large, beige head with really big bubbles which settles quickly. Dark orange cloudy body. Aroma is hoppy and very fresh. Caramel-like malt sweetness. The citra hops are very present, and reminds of orange peel and tropical fruits. Has a sensation of feels unusually highly carbonated on the tongue at first, but this stops almost immediately. Unusual, but not uncomfortable. Mostly sweet at first, with a medium dry bitter finish. Falls between an american pale ale and an IPA.

tfredvik (1099) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Pours a cloudy, medium amber body with lots of sediments of all sizes. Large, creamy, off-white head. Very strong hoppy aroma of mango, peach and other tropical fruits with just the right amount of caramel in the back. Strong flavour of mango, pineapple, peach, newly cut grass and herbs. Light sweet taste with a rather heavy bitter finish. Light and dry on the palate with a lively carbonation. A very nice APA that should be tuned down to 4.7% and put in the shelf of my local grocery store.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Senka (446) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
33cl BBE 9/14 Pours clear golden with white, soapy, frothy head. I have not tried citra in homebrew, and this ale I believe gives a very nice overview of the hops. Used for both bittering and dry hoping. Refreshing fruity beer, with just enough carbonation and a medium body. Do not serve it extra cold - you might lose some character of the brew.

One of the best pale ale I ever tasted. So citrous, fresh, fruity... Delicious! Great choice for Mediterranean summer!

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from vinmonopolet. Hazy light maber with thick head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple, limeleaf, and elderflower. Taste of lemon, limeleaf, elderflower, and mild melon fruityness. Dry in mouth and good carbonation but not too mutch. Nice body. Fresh and nice drinking beer.

fiammanghilla (529) - Genova, ITALY - JUL 23, 2014
Bottiglia 33 cl, comprata da giangaspero e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma grossolana. Secca e molto amara, citrica ed un po’ metallica sul finale, astringe. Non il massimo ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange body with a large creamy white head. Nose is freshly cut grass, herbs, citrus, orange zest, mild caramel and hints of red berries and straw. Taste is nutty caramel, citrus, mild grapefruit tones, lemon zest and hints of oranges, peaches and wet grass. Medium body, high carbonation. Impressive, particularly for a more than half-a-year-old APA - wonder what this was like fresh (and why no-one imported it to Norway a bit sooner... :-P)

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
On draught at Kent BF 2014. Hazy amber colour lasting beige head. Citrusy citra aroma. Light in the carbonation. Decent intense citrus hop flavour. Lemon lime grapefruit and tangerine. Some bitterness on the finish. First beet if festival after hot cycle ride so quaffed quickly. Even still the citrus flavours really lasted on the finish and made a big impact.
