3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Light grapefruit and mango aroma. Very subtle soapy notes.
Appearance: Hazy, pale golden body with light yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head that slowly fades. Lively carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Big grapefruit and lemon flavours - this is really juicy and refreshing. Biscuity malt in the background. Lingering bitter finish.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation.
Overall: A fruity, delicious beer - I could happily drink several of these. For me, Citra is the best hop to use for single-hop beers.

500ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a smooth, moderately sized head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Very dry with bitter grapefruit and intense citrus hops with a late and very long bitter finish. Fairly high carbonation, perhaps a little too much. Bold and refreshing, very nice.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle. Pours very pale golden with a white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma is of grapefruit and tropical fruit from the citra hops. The flavour is fresh and zingy with grapefruit to the fore. The finish is long and dry. This is ideal summer beer.
