We use Citra, and a blend of other American hop varieties to create some great citrus flavours.

ljthiessen (1169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - OCT 1, 2013
Can. Clear, golden orange pour with a large, frothy white head. Lots of citrus on the nose, balanced nicely with hops. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy, an a little metallic with decent citrus notes. Overall a little watery and not hugely flavourful, but balanced and pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martpez (130) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Tangy ale. Crispy with spicy hops. Surprisingly well conditioned for a can. High on carbonation but still remains smooth.

beeebon (410) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with small but lingering white head. Strong citrus aroma, lemon, grass and caramel malt. Medium sweet and light to medium bitter, nicely balanced. Slightly thing texture wise but very drinkable. A nice brew!

500ml bottle. Citrus hop aroma. Taste is a bit thin but well balanced with light pithy bitterness. Quite a good one.

Bottle, 500ml. A copper colour with a small head. Aroma of musty hops and citrus, some dough notes. Flavour has roasted malt, biscuit, citric hops, wheat. A slightly bitter, citrus finish. Quite drinkable.

jan23778 (123) - Sant Antoni De Vilamajor, SPAIN - OCT 5, 2016
Pours a perfectly clear light amber colour with a long lasting small white head. Aroma medium strong tropical fruit, lots of mango. Light flavour, low bitterness, a little mango, a little pine. Dry finish, medium to medium high carbonation. Great aroma but the low alcohol means it lacks a little in flavour and mouthfeel.

Tognetta (785) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 4, 2016
mbar translcida, espuma bege de mdia formao e mdia/pouca durao. Aroma misto de ctrico, lupulada, pssego fresco, malte em segundo plano. Paladar de leve dulor e amargor. Corpo leve, quase aguada, mdia carbonatao. Final de pouca persistncia, perde o lpulo fresco frutado e da mais cara ao amargor puro e dulor de leve intensidade. Faltou frescor mas vale como indicao para iniciados nos estilo.

Wow ! was my first impression. Surprisingly really good. Sweet malty, then fairly bitter orange peel, grapefruit peach flavour. Brilliant for a 4.5% beer.

Vells (1630) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - SEP 15, 2016
Simple, but same time quite enjoyable. Biscuit maltiness, some caramel, light toast, some grassy hops. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Not a kicker, but quite nice
