2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. One month before the BB date. Hazy golden, nearly no head. Aroma is fruity, malty. Medium to very sweet, modest bitterness. Nearly flat. OK aroma but too sweet and lacking carbonation. There must be better bottles out there.

"Best before" proche de la fin ... Pour un embouteillage le 18/12, c’est assez court ! Et bien je ne sais pas si ma bouteille est passée ... En tout cas, c’était vraiment pas bon ... Traînant, vague, de traviole sans parfum véritable ...

Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield. 7.0%. Very hazy gold. Messy, bubbly, white head. Big citra. Lots of orange. Notes of strawberry. Taste is citrusy sweet. Nice tang. Gets a little, zesty bitter. Nice mouthfeel. Juicy and soft. That tangy, zestiness rises on the finish. Nice and juicy. Good one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citra IPA, what’s not to like?
Pours yellow to amber with little carbonation or head.
Classic citra in the nose if a little toned down for the ABV. Citrus, grass, tropical, lemon. Touch of soap and medicinal notes suggest it’s nearly there but not quite executed. Pale malt comes through, with decent body and lovely boozy finish.
Very close to excellent with my favourite hop but not quite.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy straw colour with a big frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is huge grassy hop, pine needles. The flavour is strong bitter with a smooth uber grass nettle citra hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation. A real grass box classic. Loved it!
