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.

500 ml bottle. Hazy pale yelow color with small white head. Very distinct fruity hops aroma (citrus and lychee). Refreshing flavour of citrus, a bit bitter and very dry hoppy finish. Very refreshing with a distinct aroma.

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 (176) - 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 (781) - 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 (56) - 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 (901) - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016 Draught ring of bells taunton. What a beer, magic. Lovely aroma of indistinguishable citrus fruits, pronounced malt backbone. Fine beer.
