Bontus (634) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2013
75cl bottle, Delhaize. Good price/quality ratio... Pours EBC 20-25 golden yellow. Dense white head. Citrus C-hop nose, also thyme. Very smooth palate, medium to low carbonation. Well balanced bitterness.

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden. Lovely hoppy aroma full of overripe tropical fruits. Dry-ish flavor with lots of fruity hops and pleasant lingering bitterness.

suprchunk (2250) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Hazy golden colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Smells of yeast, lemon, malt, and caramel. A bit dry in the nose. Taste is a dry malt with some bitter hop forwardness. Dry mouth. Not bad.

JorisPPattyn (7930) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2013
Medium, very fine and dense, lighlty yellowish head, rather stable over veiled orange-ochre beer. Nose yields subsequently dry heather, fruity (berries), valerian/blackcurrant leaf, dry hopbales; citrus... if you want, yes. Very dry, bitterish to bitter hopflavour; again valerian/catty. Bitterish rootspices. Retronasal, again faint citrus. Feels quite carbonated; medium bodied at best. Aftertaste has more outspoken, if indifferent bitterness. This one indeed closely resembles the Mikkeller Hop Series Citra. Same cattiness - I am surprised Duvel/Moortgat managed to avoid this aspect of Citra in their DTH. Overall, quite unidimensional, and not very exciting.

Adrienpodo (9) - JETTE, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2013 does not count
Belle couleur dorée légère trouble. Nez du citra, plein d’agrumes. Belle amertume et sécheresse en fin de bouche.

McWorta (594) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 16, 2013
Noses a lot of grapefruit, litschies and citrus. Nice golden colour and a white lasting pillowy head. Lightly sweet and medium sour. Light fizzy and thin texture with a medium body. Finish is dry and average. Not sure what is extreme on this beer but it is a good thirst quencher.

Abio (1572) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2013
Dark golden beer. Good head. Citrussy, grassy, slightly earthy and a good lasting biterness at the end.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 26/I/13 - 75cl bottle @ Nieuwjaarsreceptie Gentse Biervereniging - BBE: 2013 (2013-104) Thanks to John for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, small irregular off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of passion fruit, sweet pineapple, lychees in cans, very sweet ripe fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: quite some citrus, bit piny, resinous, passion fruits, lychee, ripe mango, little sourish. Aftertaste: bitter, exotic fruits, some grapefruit, citrus, zesty, lemon grass, nice sour and bitter ending. Wow. De Proef has done it again!

BoBoChamp (5456) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2013
75cl, as Xtrem Hop Citra, new exclusive brew Anno 2013, from Delhaize Gent, complex bitter brew, malty/bitter and slightly fruity/sweet, balanced, hazy, rocky head, good brew

MOARBEER (92) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013
Picked up all 3 of these Xtrem Hop series (Columbus/Citra/Sorachi Ace) and although they all pour and look like a tipical tripel I was left rather disappointed with the taste. Where’s my Extrem(e) hop goodness? The name is not fitting with the beer. Nice beer but not Extreme in any way.
