@ BBF ’11. The aroma is very citric, orange, lemon, some grass. Slightly hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is malty, bitter, citric. Clean and fresh. Nice one.

On tap. Pours a hazy, red amber with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Hoppy aroma of citrus, peach, pine and caramel malt. Sweet flavour of exotic fruit, citrus, pine needles and caramel malt with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Pretty good.

Brandman (2660) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Bit cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has strong maltiness and some pungent lemon. Not even really nice hop aroma. Flavour is quite strong and brings more citrus. Harsh and quite bitter aftertaste. really strong feeling for 6 abv.

11/20/2011 11:17:45 AM On tap at Beer Temple. Nice orange body with small head. Nose is fruit with plenty of hops and citrus. Tate is also hops and fruits. Really nice. Also plenty of grapefruit. Lots of bitter in the finish. Well done, Nogne!

Great citrucy aroma and sharp bitterness. I’m afaid that I dn’t get it too fresh to have better score. Some of the aroma is missing compared to last time I tried it.

Alla spina. IPA fresca, agrumata e profumatissima. Gusto pieno e rotondo, corpo medio, effervescenza giusta, esalta pienamente il Citra. Ottima!

Beertopia 2015 #10. Hazy amber pour. Aroma is mostly malt. Some spicy hop. Taste is malt heavy with just some hop. Not special enough for #500.

Very grape-fruity both in aroma and flavour. Brownish orange in colour with a large off-white head, there was lots of citrus fruits in the aroma and some caramel with a taste of grapefruit’s and bitter oranges. Flavour is all about the hop and has some nice balance between the citrusy fruits and the caramel malt backbone, loved it.

Very British style malt with heavy biscuit malts. I like it but not what I expected. Pours a dark cloudy amber with a thick beige head. The nose is citrus heavy with big lemon and grapefruit notes, heavy biscuity and toffee malt notes that complement and also outweigh the hops. A nice finesse with the biscuity malts in the profile that gives a good sweetness to bitter balance. Lingers with citrus fruits and a light florality. Overall a bit of an unusual IPA
