essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
33cl bottle from Beers of Europe. Drunk today. Pilsner, cara-crystal, munich and oat flakes. Clear amber-orange, with some small chunks of sediment suspended. Pours a huge, orange-white, pillowy head, with fair-sized, tasty bubbles, and excellent lacing, then persists well as a complete covering. Mid-light carb. Aroma - Sweeter citrus than the Centennial (lots more sweet, sticky orange, just a bit of pink grapefruit), but not quite as complex. Bready, caramel malt merges into the sweet citrus. Candy & orange peel. Some faint, spicy / funky & floral hop flower. Bit yeasty. Taste - Sweet citrus; juicy orange and sweeter red grapefruit, candy, orange peel & some bitter citrus oil. Potent, spicy / sticky hops. Biscuity, caramel, candy malt is kind of in the background, but this doesn’t lead to it being slightly unbalanced towards bitterness, as in the Centennial, because the hop flavours here are sweeter citrus aromas. Slightly yeasty. Sweet, juicy citrus & cara malt start turns into some slight, drier citrus flavours, then finishes with a bit of a light bitter, citrus tang (pink grapefruit). Some slight citrus flavours left on aftertaste, with very little bitterness, which is strange. Med body. Overall, a good showcase of the hop, but not an ideal IPA: Aroma & taste are a bit less complex and less interesting than the Centennial, but on the otherhand, the Citra seems to have a better balance, as well as some interesting, strong orange flavours, though these can be a bit sickly at times.

330ml bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Sweet resin pine hop aroma. Reddish amber brown colour, reasonable head, some sediment. Boiled fruit sweet & hop flavour. Citrus fruit resin and biscuit aftertaste. A good IPA.

Pours resin brown, white frothy lasting head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and spruce hops. Nice IPA, I think you will like it.

Hello 1L squealer bottle, medium choc brown thick dark amber colour, smells fruity and of citrus hop, some malt too, just tastes like citra hops and malt, but was great to identify I really like the citra hop. Will get again if I see it. Quality & delicious single hop IPA

Interesting and good IPA. Pours a thick murky dark orange. Aromas are citrus hops. Sweet aromas too. Flavours are dank and musky weeds...sweet malts up front...I like it.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden amber with some hazing. Smallish dense offwhite head which hangs in there for a while. Great hop aromas, pine resin and some light tropical fruits, balanced nicely by light caramel. Flavours are initially sweet before resiny hop bitterness takes over. Medium mouthfell. Good stuff.

Beer4000 (4407) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2012
330 ml bottle. Dark golden body with a big, stable, creamy off-white head. Aroma has pine and light caramel malt. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, citric fruity, light piny and balanced bitterness. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. A decent IPA, but as for most single hops it’s not made for perfection.

Pleasant poor with a nice lacing head. Over all it’s a bitter sweet beverage with aroma of honey and pine.
