Brewed as a showcase for the American Citra hop. With massive aromas of tangerine, passionfruit, mango, tropical and citrus fruit flavours and a zingy bitter finish.

Cask gravity, first pints out of the cask at Butcherís Arms, Herne. Well, this beer had plenty of hype and didnít fail. Citra hops all over this. Belies itís ABV and was just so drinkable and the hops so interesting and tasty and enjoyable. Mango and strawberry at the same time. The aroma jumped out of the glass. I had 3 pints of this, the last 2 pints I drank with a big smile on my face. I will admit to making very few scant notes on the aroma and flavour, for me I was enjoying the whole, beer and pub experience.

Gravity cask at the Peterborough BF. Pale gold with a lacey white head. Massive aroma of fresh citra hops and flavour does not disappoint. A festival of tropical flavours dancing on my taste buds, mango being the most noticeable. Stunning!

Cracking golden, with a feint haze. Served cool, as is the norm at the Coach and Horses. But, welcome after such a long drive. Sweaty sock, typical of Citra. Mellow, dank, fruit. Cracking drinking.

Cask Conditioned gravity dispense Peterborough BF 2010. A light golden beer with a loose white bubbly head. The citras in this are glorious. Big time mango in the nose with other tropical fruit, but itís the mango that is shockingly acute and more so than in any other Citra beer Iíve had. Smooth and fruity in the mouth with lovely hop flavours again. Beautifully brewed and very moreish and delicious.
