August 2017 - Can shared at Chriso's Pre-GBBF Shindiggery. Thanks everyone! As 'Honest Brew Free Lunch Citra IPA', 5.4%. Hazy lemon yellow, sparkling, foamy white head leaves light lacing. Aroma is astringent lemon juice, pineapple peel, some green banana and green apple. Body is light, a touch frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is lemon and stones, light astringency, dry and chalky with some pithy grapefruit in the finish. Decent. (6-4-7-3-15=3.5) simontomlinson (521) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Huge creamy white head sat on a hazy light orange coloured, still body.
Zesty orange, sweet citrus & tropical fruits aroma.
Medium bodied, nicely balanced carbonation on the palate, slightly cloying on the back.
A big hit of bitter/sweet orange with citrus, topical fruits & haribos tastes.
Nice one. Theydon_Bois (20139) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
