Bottle at home. Clear orange pour, very thin white head fades to nothing. Awesome rich hoppy nose, pissy Citra, gooseberry, tropical fruits, fruit pastilles, lemon peel, touch of odd spicy blackcurrant even? Really interesting and complex for a SH Citra brew. Amazing juiciness upfront, definite candy character, resinous pine, pithy oranges and lemons, touch of light spice, soft tropical fruits, big pithy bitterness on the finish. Big, bold hop character. A tiny bit thin in body, but considerably better than some American IPAs. Ace.

Tselloufc88 (89) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Golden brown in colour, darker than the normal citra by Oakham. Bits of carbonation. Aroma is of passion fruit, gooseberry and some grapefruit. Taste is initially of sharp citrus then with a gooseberry middle and medium bitter spicy finish.This is very tasty stuff! Another corker by Oakham.

bottle, nice sclear yellow to goldish colour, rocky stable white head. Deep citrusy and sweet aroma, brilliant aroma. Medium to strong sweetness on start afterwards it comes into nice melow bitterness. Well balanced bittersweet IPA just like it should be I think. Quite drinakable , and soft. Very good beer

alkolas510 (567) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Pilsnerfärgad klar med mellanstort ljust skum. Doftar inte jättemycket men annanas och citrus finns där. Krispig och mest citrus i smaken. Helt ok!

BitchPls (514) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Orange clear beer with a minimal white head. Fruity aroma. Caramel, pine needles, mild grape fruit. Thin to medium body. Semi dry palate. Quite easy to drink. Better than most British Ipa’s but still a little milder than American IPA’s.
