Bottle. Pale golden colour with white head, that leaves some nice lacing. Strong aroma of tropical fruits like mango, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange and some piney notes. Very hoppy bitter taste, dragging all that fruits with it. Excellent beer!

Gold colored pour. Big white head. A little lacing left behind the quick falling head. Big fruity aroma of grapefruit and oranges. Some malt. A nice citrusy flavor with some buttery caramel unfortunately in there. A slight bitterness that lasts throughout. A little sweet and dry. Not bad at all.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Clear golden beer with a large, tight white head. Big, juicy and resinous aroma, along with a whack of orange fruit. Sweet pineapple on the flavour, orange and lemon, leading into a lovely resinous hoppy bitterness. The absolute business – this is one of the best British IPA’s I’ve ever had, quite simply. The way the flavours move on from the sweet fruit into the piney bitterness on the finish is wonderful

Bottle 8 Beer tasting club – Had this a number times before and a great way to end a USA tasting session with a beer from the UK. That shows there is a growing number of great brewers in the UK producing USA style IPA’s. Straw yellow loads of citra hops superb citrus and grapefruit taste.

Wow! Like Oakham Citra only stronger and more flavoursome if Citra were the IPA this would be the DIPA however Citra is a pale ale with Green Devil as the IPA so maybe the DIPA is yet to come.
For the un initiated this beer showcases the Citra hop so called for it’s strong citrusy flavours think passionfruit, grapefruit, mango etc.
Oakham ales produce some amazing beers and I am very lucky to have a Oakham pub in my home city which has also influenced other pubs to stock their beers.
Summary, citrusy Citra hopped refreshing deceptively quaffable beautiful piney aroma and a bitter finish. Yum!
