COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pacific North West of America is home to the Citra hop. America is not just about cheer leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and Citra is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A relatively new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with brash citrus, grapefruit orange, hints of resinous pine and touches of black currant. Devilishly moreish. I am a little bit too obsessed with this beer for my own good.

Af krana á Skúla. Það er þriðjudagur og mikið um fundarhöld, ákvarðanir sem eru teknar í myrkri lenda betur með bjórglasi. Þessi er með flottan maltgrunn, ilmurinn ljúfur frekar en grípandi. Grænn miði.

Pours a clear brown copper with a white head. Citrus aroma, shocker. Taste is a mild bitterness.

Ottima ipa, esplosiva, con le caratteristiche note acidulo-citriche del citra che sfociano in una cascada amara e avvolgente verso il finale.

Draft schooner. Clear, deep be, small off-white head. Aroma is floral, fruity and complex. Initially citric and dry fruit flavours, then plenty of malt, quite sweet middle followed by earth and pine. Hops come through nicely. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied, slightly oily. Lovely.

Scottish rate 100. [email protected], birmingham. Copper beer with small head and patchy lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus hops. Taste is citrus, grapefruit and some resin. Fizzy palate. Very good.

Keg @ Grove Huddersfield. Not sure about this one. Got into Citra with Oakham which is good considering I prefer higher abv beers. Very faint Citra in this, tastes watery. Not much shouting out in this one. Tastes like San Pelligrino with faint Citra catpee hidden . Little bit of signature Punk IPA taste in there. There is a finish on the tongue but it tastes generic like a homebrew kit using malt extract in a can. Disappointed by this effort from Brewdog. I expected more.

Beese (2670) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 2 Nov. Poured a clear, deep golden, with a dense white head. Aroma of Citra hop, zesty fruit and straw. Fresh citrus fruit in the flavour, with golden syrup and mango. Finish was resin, balanced hop bitterness and toasted malt.

Bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Memory banks rate. Citra is the bomb. Can’t really go wrong with this hop. Lovely.
