This is a special one, brewed with Citra hops. The regular Grabanc IPA has four steps as hop addition in the kettle, in the second one the Chinook was replaced with Citra, at the third step it had some more Citra with Cascade.
At the last batch the Citra was added continously into the kettle and was dry hopped with a bit more Citra;-)

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 27, 2015
On tap @ Csakajósör - Hazy golden colour, frothy, enduring white head. Significant citrussy and piney aromas with some toffee-like malty sweetness. Taste is grapefruit, lemon zest, mango, resin, and some grainy maltiness. Medium body with moderate carbonation, long dry finish with a lingering hop bitterness. A little out of balance, but its so nice.

aronvarga (441) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 22, 2014
Tap. Bit cloudy, orange color, long-life medium sized rocky off-white head, citrus aroma, medium body, soft carbonation, sweet malty (especially toffee) and resinous hoppy bitter taste, powerful piney and citrus hoppy palate. An aggressive IPA style brew.

bár nehéz pontosan felidézni, mert nem mostanában esett a kóstolása, azért ha jól rémlik, erősen dominálta a komló ezt is, igencsak kifejezett citrusossággal.

kapusil (1202) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 8, 2013
On tap. Orange body, off-white head. Piny, citrusy, caramely aroma. The flavor is piny, herby, citrusy and caramely. The citra hops make this version more citrusy and drier, more bitter than the original Grabanc. It’s an awesome beer.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 7, 2013
On tap at Csakajósör, Budapest. Hazy, orange colored one with medium, pillowy, off-white head. Hoppy, bitter, grassy, citrus aroma. MEdium bitter taste. Very delicious! Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Long hoppy finish. Knowing the other types of Grabanc, in this one the Citra is clearly recognizable from it’s unique grassy citrus aroma. It fits perfectly to the beer. It has thicker body and more creamy texture than usual IPAs, but it’s one of the reasons why I love this beer. Needless to say, that the series of Grabanc is the best beer in Hungary.

inbirraveritas (1509) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2012
Draught. Unclear orange body, medium sized and fine pored off-white head, which laces. Intensive grapefruity nose and aroma escorted by honey, caramel, distinct resin and herbs all this underpainted gently by alcohol. Slick, syrupy mouthfeel. Long and lemon-peel tasted, sweetbitter finish with alcohol and lots of herbs. Well done.

csakajosor.hu Armando mester legújabb agymenése ez a sör. Fogta a már jól ismert és méltán közkedvelt ipáját és feldobta egy jó adag citra komlóval. Ettől az egész még gyümölcsösebb, sokkal illatosabb, fenyősebb, gyantásabb lett, ami nagyon jól áll neki, nem beszélve a még intenzívebb, finom keserűségéről. Itt lenne az ideje, egy saját sörfőzdét nyitnia Sörmóknak, hogy még jobban eluralkodjon rajta az őrület! Hajrá!
