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.

Cask, at the Butchers Arms, Herne. Golden pale ale, small head. Lovely Citra aroma of pink grapefruit, hint of mango. Flavour more of the same, pronounced citrus bitterness, hint of grass, string pink grapefruit flavour, bit of mango, lychee... delicious. Very refreshing, couple of pints went down very easily.

Ragnampiza (449) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - SEP 9, 2014
500 ml bottle from Birra+. Dark golden yellow, pretty clear, with a small but persistent white head. Not the freshest Citra single hop ever, but still relatively pungent and inviting. Citrus, wet tea leaves, a hint of wild type of fruits/berries, some light bubblegum notes as well in the background. Moderately sweet and slightly astringent upfront, but it ends pretty damn bitter and resinous. Very clean hoppy and piney aftertaste. Extremely thirst quenching and drinkable, slightly watery. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Very pleasent.

ippopotamo36 (206) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle in Belgrade-Serbia. Pours pale golden, just slightly hazy, white medium foam which quickly goes Dow and leaves a bubble lacing on the glass. Nose of fresh and a bit sweet grapefruit, rich aroma of tangerine and marmalade. Mouth: gently bitter start, dry general feel. Pungent bitterness. Lovely! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
