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.

Draught at Red Lion (Leytonstone). Clear golden with small white head, short-lived. Nice citrusy aroma. Taste of citrus and celery/veg. Short finish, low carbonation, medium dry. Decent beer.

Flaska v Green Pub Sturovo. Farba bledsia zlata, pena biela, pada pomalsie, vcelku husta. Vona hlavne citrusy, ale miesane s travovymi tonmi, avsak obe vone jemne. Chut pripomina vonu, travnate tony sa striedaju s citrusmy, horkost jemne vyssia, avsak nie velmi silna, ale dlhotrvajuca, zostava na jazyku. Toto pivo nesklamalo. Pri vybere som sa riadil recenziami. Chut sice nie je vyrazna, ale to ma prave na tomto pive bavilo. Prudko pitelne po cely vecer, aj vdaka nizsiemu obsahu alkoholu.

(Bottle) A clear bright gold colour with a small white head. Big citrus punch. Crisp and refreshing, a tiny bit of sweetness, medium bitter flavour with a dry bitter finish. Low carbonation so a nice mouthfeel. One of the best supermarket APA "swills" around. Morrisons £1.50 (4 for £6)

UjoKlobasa (547) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, zest. Heavy bitter. Intense for lower ABV but unbalanced and not pleasant to me.

explosivedog (188) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with little head. Smell is lots of resin and a little fruit. Taste is resin and grapefruit. Would expect more lemon from a citra single hop, and the resin is a bit much for me.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Samean kullankeltainen olut niukalla, mutta pitsiä jättävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu erittäin miellyttävä, greippinen ja hedelmäinen. Suorastaan houkuttelee maistamaan olutta. Maku ei sitten ihan pysty vastaamaan heitettyyn haasteeseen. Maku greippinen ja sitrusmainen ja jälkipuraisussa paljon greippistä katkeruutta. Tämä menee jo oman maun yli, eikä oikein toimi belgifanille ihan toivotulla tavalla.
