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. Pour was medium golden with a nice white frothy head. Aroma was strong with citrus, fruit, pineapple, and hop bitterness. This aroma was one of the best I have ever smelled. Though it was a bitter, the flavor was quite hoppy, but real well balanced with smooth bitterness and some light malt characters. This was a fine brew.

Clear golden color with minimal white foam. Aroma is rich of hops, has hints of east and some acidity, over all very nice aroma! Palete, feels full and rich, more on the heavy side too. Taste is dominated by hops, and is bitter, but not too much, has balanced bitterness and for aftertase it has this grapefruit sweet bitter taste that stays for a while. Overall it is very nice beer, not too harsh nor to weak and watery, has nice taste and aroma, very enjoyable!

Bottle. Aromas of lychee, grapefruit, mango. Taste is medium bitter offset with a bit of sweetness. This is a good solid classic which is easy to drink and satisfying enough without being over complex.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2015
On cask, poured into a nonic glass. The aroma is a warm and pleasant blend of orange, caramel, bread, and late notes of tropical fruits. The beer appears oily with a gold hue and a sudsy white head that leaves a snowy lacing and has a moderate retention. The taste is a medium high bitter and complimentary medium sweet. The texture is oily and smooth with a foamy carbonation and a medium body. The flavor is that of bitter citrus and a light caramel note with a smooth finish containing bitter pine and a bite of herbal and citrus zest. The aftertaste is lightly dry with herbal and bitter citrus notes as well as a mildly lingering caramel and bread undertone.

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.
