Erzengel (5084) - Wuppertal, - JUL 5, 2011
Ein "Single Hop Craft Beer" - gebraut nur mit Citra-Hopfen. Das Bier im Glas ist trüb und riecht toll grasig-hopfenaromatisch. Der Antrunk ist angenehm herb-frisch, blumig. Die weiche milde des hefigen Bieres passt sehr gut dazu. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier noch ein Bisschen herber und nun treten auch die Citra-Hopfenaromen zu Tage. Zitroniges Grapefruitaroma, zusammen mit einer frisch-grasigen Hopfenherbe bestimmen das Bild. Sehr interessant. Die Süße des Bieres hält sich zurück, aber bei diesem Bier soll ja auch der Hopfen im Mittelpunkt stehen. Die zitronigen Aromen des Bieres halten sich noch lange bis in den Nachgeschmack auf der Zunge, die grasige Herbe sorgt für einen lang anhaltenden Nachklang. --> Insgesamt ein tolles Bier. Die frischen Zitrusaromen des Citra-Hopfens kommen voll zu Geltung, das Bier ist angenehm feinherb und schmeckt schon fast, als sein ein Spritzer frischer Zitronensaft enthalten. Faszinierendes Hopfenaroma! Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert! 12,14,12,14,12,15 - 13,80

Very refreshing, light IPA. Great for summer. Intensive citra aroma and taste. Alcohol on the light side - so not a very deep experience. Still my favorite Hopfenstopfer.

aggtBeer (18) - Rock Cave, West Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2015
Poured an orange brown and came with a massive lasting head that I’ve seen on other beers from Häffner Bräu. Citrus, tangerine, mango, orange, and grapefruit combined to form an aroma which was impressive and slightly sour. The flavor was mild orange and citrus and wasn’t as bold as the aroma. This beer was highly carbonated, and it was quite crisp. While plenty drinkable I did find Citra Ale to be a bit of a let down after the aroma.

Bottle. 5.1%. Best before 07.06.14; 8 months past. Pours a clear straw yellow, with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is citrus hops, a bit tart. Feels a bit stale. Flavour is sweetish, with citrus hops, a bit tart. Light milky note. Dull. Too much carbonation. Overall not bad, but so-so; should probably try a fresher one. 28.02.15.
