caesar (5323) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from sourced market, large sample. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, some biscuity malt. Bitter fruit punch, cookie. In their ipas they put a decent amount of biscuity malts, which makes the balance superb. Great stuff, although a bit one dimensional.

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2011
Shared bottle from the brewery. ABV was 8.1%. Golden colour, moderate head. Citric aroma and flavour, sharp bitterness. Okay, but not really great.

kappldav123 (5167) - GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Deep golden in the glass, small head. Hoppy fruity aroma. Starts mild-hoppy, fine flowery, more and more spicy. Finish well balanced, milder, quite drinkable. Nice!

jackl (4994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. Slightly hazy deep orange color without the usual huge Kernel head (perhaps my pouring skillz are on the wane). The nose is funky orange sherbet and plenty of sweet tropical fruits. Pineapple, mango, all the usual suspects. The taste is light salty cheese, plenty of orange, sea grass, resin and more tropical fruits. Nice, light body. Smooth and supple. Overall, another good one from the lords of Bermondsey.

jmgreenuk (4988) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. poured a cloudy orange colour with a very thin, off-white head and no lace. The carbonation is very low. The aroma is grassy and a little floral. The flavour is hoppy, zesty and the dry pepper hoppiness hits the palate right away. The smooth bitter aftertaste makes this a very diverse and refreshing ale that justifies its rating.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2011
Draught at CASK Pub & Kitchen Pre-GBBF Meet the brewer event, London. Hazy orange color. Hefty lemon and petrol aroma. Bittersweet flavor with citrus, orange, toffee, fruity hoppiness and some hop tannins. Fairly good, surprisingly petroly for a Citra hopped beer.

Borresteijn (4928) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2011
33cl Bottle, gift from Nate2g, massive thanks for this beauty! ABV 6.2% (it’s not the Citra +, checked the label dozens of times). Hazy golden orange colour, dense white head. Gorgeous aroma of citrussy hops, grapefruit, some strawberries, some sweet malts and caramel. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, fresh citrus and lime, grapefruit, light sweet fruity, creamy, very nice citrussy hop finish. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent IPA.
