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.

TysonBeerhound (61) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Cask version. Golden with a thin white head. Heady citrus aroma of grapefruit, orange and pineapple with a little pine. Body is crisp and refreshing. Lots of lychee, mango, grapefruit and a slight grassiness. Dry citrus finish that lingers on the palate. A superb session beer. The best example of this type of beer on cask in the UK.

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2015
This one was less hoppy then Scarlet Macaw that I just had. Still the malt bill is well juicy like the precedent. The beer is not that complex but satisfying. Aroma is poor and reminds bread, sugar and zest. The flavour is quite the same with a good mouthfeel ; soft and creamy.

Towey1989 (709) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, slight lemon, subtle pine and some grassy, herbal hops. Taste is fruity of grapefruit, orange, mango, some lychee, subtle caramel and grassy hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A good, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A lot fruitier than other citra hopped golden ales. Fresher hop character too. Really good.

weordie (365) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Pours golden with a medium head. Aroma is strong citrus and some marijuana smoke. The taste is a little bit of sweet citrus at the tip with a mild bitterness at the finish. It’s ok but not as good as I’ve heard.

Tropical aroma with a full on citrus and mango taste, as well as a bitter finish. One for hopheads! -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Hanoi (616) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. Nose is grapefruit, , malt, slight cereal, faint hint of butterscotch. Taste is pleasingly bitter grapefruit, hint of lime, ripe lychee, almost a rye note, biscuit malt, and a herbal note. This is much better than I was expecting, very nice indeed.
