500ml bottle. Well deserving of its renown. Always enjoy a single hop beer and when the variety is Citra you know itís going to be great.

Gold pour, small white head. Aroma of mango, apricot, lemon, grass, and hay. Flavor of mango, big grapefruit, notes of caramel and chocolate but very bitter. Full and sharp. Fantastic.

Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a sticky half-finger of white head. Big tropical and citrus aroma, pineapple, lychee, mango, orange. The flavour is all these things plus a moderately assertive hop bite not detectable in the nose. The body is medium and goes for the citrusy juicy feel over a malty one, making it drink like an IPA. A plus in that itís so easy to down, but when I have a IIPA I want it to feel more like one, so slight overall deduction for me. Still, a stellar delicious drink.

Sensational ipa! Pours golden with decent foam. Do yourself a favour and put your nose right in this beer and take a huge breath in. You'll be bowled over by an aroma full of passionfruit, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, mandarin... The list goes on. The flavour gives the fullest hop flavour possible without even the slightest hint of overpowering bitterness. Top beer!

Draft at Brothers Beer. Clear bright golden with a small white head. The aroma is characteristic of citra beers - citric, grapefruit, orange, pine. The flavor is nice with honey sweet malt yielding to a big bitter hop punch. Medium bodied, intense and enamel ripping. Good!

500mL bottle BB: jan 2016. As i pour this clear golden brew i can smell the amazing aroma wofting from the glass. The wonderful tropical citrus fruit is very prominent in the flavor also. An incredible beer that is deceptively drinkable at 9%.

On tap at Alehouse Project, Melbourne: big citrus nose that really showcases the varietal. Crisp mouthfeel. A possibly sessionable double IPA with good balance. If you love citra, then this is the beer for you.

A good, but not great double IPA. I had this at a tasting session (thanks to www.craftbeeronline.co.nz) and it was only in the middle of the bunch, so I was faintly underwhelmed. Strong citrus, floral, resin hops and matching taste, but my resounding memory is that it is overrated

Contradiction to the type of beer it is. Being a double IPA I was expecting it to be pretty full on. But it's more like a session IPA really. Great aroma and fantastic palate. Mild hops. A winner but!

500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Lots of citrus and sharp hop flavors.
