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.

tbonde (312) - DENMARK - SEP 28, 2016
50 cl. bottle shared with Martin@Malmedy in straight glasses@appox 7 degrees c. Pours dark amber with medium off-white head. Clear hoppy aroma with lots of citric and pine notes with very subdued malt. The nose is very much reflected in the taste, where the herbal qualities of Citra hop, coupled with the aforementioned citurssy, grapefruity notes is very present. Low/medium carbonation and slightly watery, but given the ABV, it has lots of good hop taste, with a lasting, bitter aftertaste - again that grapefruit with a twist of pine. Nice APA - though you need ot be fond of your American hops!

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)

Bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, zest. Heavy bitter. Intense for lower ABV but unbalanced and not pleasant to me.
