33 cl bottle @ Euston Tap, London.
Rated on 20110721.
Pours clear yellow colour with small head. Aroma is crisp hoppy fruits, distinct citra hops on the nose, apricot and mango. Flavour is more exotic fruits, such as mango, apricot, orange and some sweetish caramel at the end. Balanced and refreshing brew.

Bottle, Yellow and slightly cloudy.Smal creamy head with a sweeet citrus flavour dominating. Any more sweetness and it would be sickly.Slighly bitter finnish but a bit overpowering for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at The Old Fountain. Hazy golden pour with a tight white head the aroma is fucking awesome. Straight-up citra hop monster with a bright lemon citrus zestiness. Very clean bitterness with just a kiss of grapefruit zestiness. Zippy and damn tasty - one of the best straight citra IPAs Iíve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle, beermerchants.com. Massive aroma of pine, citrus, wood and cat pee. The palate is very smooth and creamy, with a great carbonation on the back of the tongue. Dryness in the finish, yeast in the asftertaste. Flavours of biscuit, also apple, melon, orange and some burnt caramel. Lovely stuff, again....

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle at Old Fountain August 8, 2011. Hazy gold average off white head. Huge funky cat pee aroma, holy crap, itís an attack! Taste follows - this is all about the citra, which I love - hell, abv is whatever. Sticky funky acidic moutfeel, long catty finish; I AM IN LOVE! (moved from Citra+ where I had originally put the rating by mistake)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from The Kernel. Pours light orange with a bit of bubbles on the head. Aroma is full throttle tropical Citra hops, sweet tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, really, really fresh, it has all the fruity pungency that you get from smelling fresh Citra pellets. The malt profile is nearly non-present, just pure hops. The taste has all the same fruitiness as the aroma with a pronounced citrus and orangey feeling coming through the more tropical notes. Again, the malt just provides a base for the beer, but not any particularly pronounced tastes. Only a hint of doughiness in the aftertaste, where the hops are coming through very subtly. The bitterness is very pleasant, though not very strong. Sublime beer from The Kernel, once again.
