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.

oops (208) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 5, 2014
Nice amber with small white head. In aroma hops, citrus, some pine and maybe also some grassy hints. Tastes good! Really good! Some caramel in taste with nice hoppy and bittery aftertaste.

jgb9348 (4694) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Slightly hazy amber and light copper coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of very fresh hops with some alcohol and grassy notes also around. Medium-bodied; Strong hop notes throughout the initial tastes with a lot of gtrain, alcohol and especially body behind. Aftertaste shows a good and relatively subdued hop note rise to the forefront of the palate. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from City’Super! in Harbour City, Kowloon on 04-July-2014 for HK35,00 sampled at home in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

Serapac (98) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from M&S in London. Light golden with smaller white head. Aroma lemon, hops. Light body, taste hops and citruses again. Uncomplicated, but very drinkable (also thanks to lower abv 4.9%) IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nie jest to mój ulubiony styl, ale na pewno nie można zarzucić wad tej uroczej butelce piwa :D a co do samego piwa... pite z butelki, więc wielu aspektów ocenić nie mogę, ale na pewno miało wysoką goryczkę i aromaty cytrusowe :D

vipinvelp (2127) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Clear yellow with small white lacing foam head. Aroma is clearly quite hoppy with some fruit tones. Strong bitter taste and aftertaste. I like this citra hop. (Velp 201406) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edsspoon (368) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Bottle - golden with a thin white head. Okay retention and weak lacing. Aroma of lemon, grass, coriander seeds and lychee. Taste of grass, bitter lemon peel, hints of pineapple, slightly peppery and a little sweet. Light body, light carbonation. Re-rated because the bottle was much nicer than the cask.
