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.

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 (801) - 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.

alexmate (70) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
A big grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry bomb. It is comparable to the likes of Brewdog’s Punk IPA. A very pleasant everyday ale, ideal for the warmer months.

Ysok02 (999) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2016
Une belle APA à la belle robe ambrée, fine mousse. Nez alliant notes de houblon et de malt sur un fond épicé. Bouche à l’attaque souple et équilibrée, ronde et fruitée.

Terminus (3566) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Cask at brewery Yet another smash brew from these guys. Pours bright lite orange hue with a nice rocky head and good lacing. Nose is big citra hops very piney and somewhat grassy. Flavors are very grassy lite resin very piney. Lovery the gin like undertone in the hop profile. Fantastic. Finish is very dry lots of lingering bitterness. Cramming so much flavor into such small beers at this place.

Saeglopur (1696) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 15, 2016
500 ml bottle, bb 30 Sep 16. Courtesy of Werckmeister, thanks!
Amber, clear body, with a small, fluffy, off-white head.
Aroma of citrus, grass, orange, passion fruit, some onion, candy.
Tastes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, grass, some tropical fruits, candy.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, medium dry, lingering piney, zesty, citric, a bit herbal.

Very nice. Easy and refreshing, with lots of citric notes and a lovely pine flash in the finish. The nose has some herbal/onion notes I don’t like very much, while it is still good. Maybe not the freshest bottle. Taste is cleaner, a bit lighter though, but very good for the ABV. Enjoyable stuff overall.
