HogTownHarry (6293) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
330ml bottle at Old Fountain August 8, 2011. Hazy gold average off white head. Huge funky cat pee aroma, holy crap, it’s 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)

djd07 (6248) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. Pours a cloudy yellow with small off white head. The aroma is fruity hop and citra. Medium mouth, tropical fruit, citrus, pine, light bitter finish, very impressive.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
In short: An aromatic archetypal blonde Citra IPA.
How: Tap at Bar ANIMAL, Madrid.
The look: Cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a persistent large white head.
In long: The hoppy nose of medium-high intensity nose is typical Citra aroma with tropical and exotic fruits along with notes of cat urine which I often get from strong Citra aromas. In mouth the beer has a pillowy texture with plenty of soft bubbles. Taste is all about the Citra hops. There is some pleasant honeyed crackery cereals but they are buried under a mountain of pineapples, papaya, grapefruits, passion fruits, and others. Lots of hops here. Bitterness of medium intensity with some sticky resinous notes. An archetypal solid example of this popular IPA sub-style. Another beer I loved, sometimes I cannot sleep at night just thinking of all the future beers that I will one day drink.

SaintMatty (5979) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013

jmgreenuk (5841) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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.

caesar (5824) - 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.

mR_fr0g (5824) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Collected from the brewery on saturday morning. Pours to a vibrant hazy orange colour with a lasting fine head. The aroma of those citra hops is awesome, sweet citrus fruits with canned peaches. The initial flavour follows those sweet aromas and then comes the hop bitterness and a slight alchol bite. Nice carbonation level lifts those aromasof the palete. Nice residual bitterness that fades to a reasonably sweet after taste. The is a damn fine beer.

jackl (5816) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Sigmund (5798) - 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.
