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.

Bamsen78 (3571) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle opened at Prima Beer, Hobro. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of malt and citrus. Intense, bitter flavour of Citra hops, with notes of grass and touches of malt. Bitter aftertaste with notes of citrus amd grass. Well-balanced and very enjoyable. Decemt stuff.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Promises something at first, then disappoints. Quite pert but not enough character to warrant interest. Just boring really... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a bottle. Nice and fresh. Not too bitter but still feels like an ipa. Looks nice and hazy.

MarkoNm (923) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a fairly clear pale yellow to golden color, topped with a very nice white frothy head. It’s 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.
