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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - JUL 14, 2011
{thoughts} Spicy, well-hopped and wonderfully drinkable.

{elements} Wispy, white, foam head on a hazy peach-hued beer. Grapefruit and dank hop aroma over a cookie malt sweetness; spicy basil high notes. Lightly sweet, mild acidity, bright bitterness; sweet, fruit-and-honey flavor lingers with a spicy aftertaste. Perfume-like white currants appear after a while. Creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium body. 50 cl bottle.

MarkoNm (774) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a fairly clear pale yellow to golden color, topped with a very nice white frothy head. Itís got that inviting citrusy hops aroma, some otehr fruits in there too. Starts fruity with immediate hoppiness kicking in. Bitterness in the finish and some of it lasting in the aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours golden with small frothy white head. Very nice fruity sweet citrus grassy taste from start. Also notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits and berries. Excellent blend of sweet and bitter forming a great taste to this one.

How to put this.. I just love this beer. That huge American hoppy flavor with those tropical fruits. Light biscuit on the background and bang.. citrus, lychee, grapefruit and mango.

Gregmcfish (8) - SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2014 does not count
Crystal clear light yellow colour. Very small white head. Limited carbonation. Soft fruit aroma and creamy texture. Immediate bitterness which is very satisfying on the tongue with a rounded biscuity finish. Interesting english interpretation of an American ipa which lacks a little of the punch of its cousins from the USA. VERY SESSIONABLE THOUGH.

Krigla (68) - SLOVENIA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear yellow colour with small white head that dissapears in seconds but leaves nice lacing on the glass. Citrus and hoppy aroma. Taste of citrus with strong bitter aftertaste. Average carbonation. Overall very good beer.

humlelala (1039) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Marks &/ Spencerís Gatwick; BBD: September 2015; L14 244) Pours a nice clear golden with little white head. Decent retention and nice lace. Aroma is vaguely citrusy. Oily texture, medium carbonation, light to medium body and a crisp and bitter finish. Perhaps there are some light biscuit notes in the flavour from the malt which otherwise has a nice and very drinkable version of the Citra hop that doesnít get too much in your face as it could in some other varieties. Nice sessionable version of a citra pale ale.
