4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at Cookie, Melbourne, Victoria. Cloudy amber, mid sized head. Rich aroma of pear, gooseberry and passion fruit. Bone dry with light body and crisp, clean mouthfeel. Aromatic hops are given all attention, and itís utilized fully. Slight roasty malt stays well in the background. Intense bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Draft at Brothers Beer in Auckland. Has a lot of burnt peach, pineapple, fruit cup and other such fruit in the nose, a mild touch of pine resin, but the surprising thing is no urine, shallot or green onion, woohoo! Lean body, lightly sweet up front before drying substantially in a thinning finish. Malt has a nice sugar caramelization quality, thereís a lot of acidic hop activity on the back palate but itís not overly bitter. Apple and pear and dried grass notes linger. Probably one of the better Citra beers Iíve had, and Iím no fan of Citra, would only like to see the body provide more heft.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís banging full of happiness, and a great caramel but itís a little skinny overall, might have enjoyed a bit more body to lift it as itís sort of one dimensional. But a great way to start an evening

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Superb summer brew that loses little in comparison to the benchmark full strength variety (Liberty C!tra).

Draught, Melbourne. Hazy light amber. Aroma is citra and a bit chewy. The palate is quite similar. Light, refreshing brew.
