COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Medium body with plenty of citra hops. Low bitterness, but plenty of flavor. This does an exceptional job of showcasing the hop flavors, while still being a very mild beer.

As an American traveling in Sussex, I have been enjoying many real ales. Stumbling upon this APA, single hopped with citra, was a surprising return to the US beer scene, at a very high level of quality. Lovely floral aroma, clean dry mouth feel and taste. First-rate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marstonlad (544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Pours fairly clear golden with a little frothy white head. The aroma features citrus fruitiness with a noticeable grassy, herbal element, also a touch of pale maltiness in the background. Taste is dryish, light bitter. Hoppiness delivers both citrusy and grassy notes, also cereals and grain linger until the finish. Citra does not completely owerpower malts. The palate is light to medium bodied, slick. Very drinkable. Decent British take on the APA.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a white head which recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma is sprucey and slightly citrus. Taste is citrus, orange and slight hop bitterness.

erickok (4126) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 23, 2015
Grainy starts but luckily lots of citra hop aromas. Drinks better than the one sided aroma, with juicy bitterness and high drinkability due to the soft yet not boring yeast. Enjoyable but really simple starter. (Bottle from Wine Rack Leeds)
