Erasmus_ro (1309) - Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Tap @ Arendsnest, Amsterdam as De Molen Citra Pale Ale. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is a lot of grapefruit and passionfruit, very hoppy. Taste is hoppy too, even parfumey with the strength of it. Grapefruit, citrus, turns quite watery on the finish. Light, watery, decent carbonation.

0,33 L bottle. Nice fluffy foam. Fresh hop and mild fruity aroma. Taste is modest. Gentle caramel, hops, little sour yeast. Refreshing sour end.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 4, 2013
Clear amber body with a huge white head. Hoppy aroma with blood orange, grapefruit, lime and mandarin. Dry bitter flavour with orange, mandarin, lime. Not particularly special, but delicious nonetheless.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 18.03.2013
Aroma has hops, orange, caramel and odd, solvent-like note. Flavour has vegetables, cucumber, some hops, caramel, gooseberry bush and a vichy‐like feeling. Bitter finish with bush leaves. Too much vegetables here.

pivnizub (8790) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, big stable off-white rocky head, tart citrussy-orangey nose with a yeasty touch; solid and tart dry bitter flavour, light bodied and relatively soft; lingering bitter-tart finish accompanied by a small amount of balancing hops. Nice, no doubt, but not overwhelning…

Masterkush7 (504) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
A good tasting beer an opaque golden amber color. Beer is not a very strong ipa but the beer is well balanced with a nice hint of the citra hops. Very enjoyable

GoufCustom (801) - HONG KONG - AUG 13, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at The Bottle Shop in Sai Kung.

Cloudy hazy golden orange colour with traces of scrappy yeast sediments; Explosive three finger head with rich, long lasting crumpety off white foam, almost like a Belgian ale and very similar to Lentehop; Very sticky lacing with soft fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of grapefruit, jackfruit, raisin, dark fruits, honey, floral, orange, sweet malt and light grass; Light sweet taste of moderate grapefruit, light jackfruit, raisin, light ale malt, lemon, molasses, yeast, light spices, light lime and fairly light hops; Medium body, slick palate; Mouth feel is quite refreshing light grapefruit and strong elements of raisins, jackfruits and some prune and dark fruits. Lighty ale-malty and lemony lime background, light spices, nothing too rich nor heavy. Quite refreshing to tongue and sparkling to my mind! Hoppiness is good fresh grapefruit and jackfruit nose. Decent light grapefruit and citrus, and really light hops with not much bitterness nor astringency for a somewhat empty finish. Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Unlike the rich and spicy Lentehop, this one is all about good fresh aroma of Citra hops - grapefruit, tropical fruits and raisins, at the expense of taste and hoppiness. I believe this is what the brewers intended, as more hoppy and heavy stuffs are available elsewhere in its long lineups. If you are looking for some light and refreshing IPA, this is it. Quite recommended.
