Erzengel (9779) - Wuppertal, - JUL 5, 2011
Ein "Single Hop Craft Beer" - gebraut nur mit Citra-Hopfen. Das Bier im Glas ist trüb und riecht toll grasig-hopfenaromatisch. Der Antrunk ist angenehm herb-frisch, blumig. Die weiche milde des hefigen Bieres passt sehr gut dazu. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier noch ein Bisschen herber und nun treten auch die Citra-Hopfenaromen zu Tage. Zitroniges Grapefruitaroma, zusammen mit einer frisch-grasigen Hopfenherbe bestimmen das Bild. Sehr interessant. Die Süße des Bieres hält sich zurück, aber bei diesem Bier soll ja auch der Hopfen im Mittelpunkt stehen. Die zitronigen Aromen des Bieres halten sich noch lange bis in den Nachgeschmack auf der Zunge, die grasige Herbe sorgt für einen lang anhaltenden Nachklang. --> Insgesamt ein tolles Bier. Die frischen Zitrusaromen des Citra-Hopfens kommen voll zu Geltung, das Bier ist angenehm feinherb und schmeckt schon fast, als sein ein Spritzer frischer Zitronensaft enthalten. Faszinierendes Hopfenaroma! Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert! 12,14,12,14,12,15 - 13,80

Benzai (16931) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2017
Bottle [from Euro Secret Santa 2017, thanks!] @ home. Hazy yellow to lightly orange color, medium sized white to off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is lovely: fresh fruity pineapple, fruit hoppy. Flavor is lightly malts and nicely hoppy as well. Citra hops come through more clearly now. Average bitterness. Decent body and carbonation. Solid.

GoddamnNoise (211) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: quite intense and very pleasant aromas of tropical fruits, citrus peel, maybe mango, passion fruit and lychee. Hints of malts in the background which are more noticeable as the beer warms up. Appearance: straw yellow color with slightly off-white head. Creamy head with extremely high head thickness, maybe a little bit over carbonated. Very high retention. Low to medium lacing. Low to medium hazyness. Taste: low sweetness, medium bitterness, low sourness. Flavors of citrus, tropical fruits, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine. Quite well balanced, the malts in the background do a good job and it is not too bitter nor harsh. It's perceived as citric at first and slightly bitter toward the finish. Palate: low to medium body, watery to oily texture, medium to high carbonation, quite long and dry finish with low to medium bitterness and flavors of citrus peel, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine. Good mouthfeel. Alcohol is not noticeable. Overall: very good appearance and aromas. Flavors are very good too. The beer is very drinkable and refreshing. A good thirst quencher too. Very good and flavorful APA.

yerffoeg (83) - Dinant, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 De couleur jaune légèrement orangé, trouble et opaque, avec une belle mousse blanche. Des arômes d'agrumes et une odeur assez caractéristique des American Pâle Ales. Au niveau du goût, bien que très peu fan de ce type de bière je trouve l'amertume assez bien contrôlée.

Kronhjort1996 (112) - Århus C, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2017
Dyb gul pale, helt cloudy, med udmærket hvid top. Single hop, derfor citron i både smag og duft. Dog ikke så bitter, da det er en ABA. Average carbonation light body, slick feel, bitter finish. God single Hop, men klogt lavet som ABA, og derfor mindre bitter.

Aimant les bières au houblon Citra, j'étais particulièrement curieux de goûter cette bière, et je n'ai pas été déçu. Pas exceptionnelle mais agréable en gout. Dès l'ouverture on sent rapidement le houblon citra (qui connait un succès et une inflation depuis la Duvel Triple Hop 2017). Le gout reste bien en bouche.
