COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Kita (1339) - Koper, - JAN 9, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Hazy pale golden color with small but thick white head and soft visible carbonation. Outstanding fruity hops aroma, combined with more tropical fruits, citrus and lychee. Taste starts with refreshing citrus, then followed by sweet tropical fruits and light spicy maltiness, while finish is very hoppy. Full body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Unforgettable aroma...

erickok (4078) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 23, 2015
Grainy starts but luckily lots of citra hop aromas. Drinks better than the one sided aroma, with juicy bitterness and high drinkability due to the soft yet not boring yeast. Enjoyable but really simple starter. (Bottle from Wine Rack Leeds)

Minamizawa (54) - DENMARK - APR 16, 2015
Light in color, almost like a lager. Almost no head and foam dies quickly. Nose is hops and taste is hop with notes of grapes and a bitter finish. Not a beer I would drink many of, but interesting that they use single hop.

Makaveli (12) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Cask / Fat Cat / Colchester / Ł3.30 Little to no head. Strong tropical fruit aroma. The taste is refreshing, crisp & full of citrus hop flavour. A really good beer, one I’d love to have at my local year round!

gregerik (13) - Kings Lynn, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Piwo z browaru, który obiecuję sobie odwiedzić bo jest niedaleko. Sesyjny amerykański jasny ale, orzeźwiający, o przyjemnym grejpfrutowym charakterze, wysoki poziom goryczki, niskie wysycenie. Ma taki czysty smak, coś jak pils na chmielowych "sterydach". Świetne piwo.
