COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask and bottle; Regular. 4.2% in cask.
The first of our single hop variety beers. We were the first brewery in the UK to use Citra. The beer proved so popular that we will be brewing it again. Permanent from January 2011.
A light refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Small white head, great lacing. Clear golden body. Massive tropical fruity nose, lychee, grapefruit, lemon. Flavour is less in your face but still loads of it, mango, gooseberry and grapefruit. Good malt backbone but hops to the fore. Gentle bitterness on the finish, intensifies as it lingers. Light carbonation, a little oily, good thickness. The Citra really shines here, a great single hop beer.

This is in my top ten of beers if you like IPA style and the APA influence on that style. Great draught in the Wellington in Brum.

Svetle pivo s fantastickou kvetovo citrusovou vonou a az neuveritelnou horkostou. Moje prve s chmelom Citra a musim povedat ze ma velmi oslovilo. Svetlo zlta farba, cista a iskriva. Penu moc netvori co vnimam ako jeho jedine negativum. Chut vyvazena s vyraznou horkostou. Citra je rozhodne zaujimava odroda chmelu a toto pivo tazi z toho ze ju nemiesa s inymi odrodami a nechava ju vyniknut. Naozaj podarene letne pivo.

Tselloufc88 (342) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
This has always been a go-to beer for me when I have to go to a certain Supermarket. Its a really nice golden colour, decent white head too. Aroma is of lychee, lemon, lime and tropical fruits. Taste is a massive hit of citrus and with a nice fruity middle and decently bitter finish. Its really brilliant when cold, but also top notch when on cask (its a permanent fixture at the Wellington in Birmingham) A stonking British beer from an excellent brewery.

Not much more to add about this monster, if its served at its best, its nearly unbeatable. Craft at Clerkenwell got through a barrel in 2 hours a while back

jercraigs (10060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
2014-06-28. Crisp dark yellow body with a small white head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, moderate lemon and citrus. 7+ Flavour is similar, moderate bitterness throughout nice lemon and lemon peel citrus. Lemon grows as it warms, to its benefit. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Nice. Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow.

Oakham Ales Citra. Very light taste impression, but with a clear and sweet taste. Great as a refreshing fruity summer beer.

mgajdaczewa (1857) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Aromat mało intensywny, czysty, nieco lagerowy, są cytrusy z naciskiem na cytrynę, herbata. W smaku gładkie, lekko cytrusowe,herbaciana słodowość, posmak goryczkowy, herbata z grejpfrutem. Takie... herbaciane jest to piwo. Sesyjne, pijalne, do picia w większej ilości w plenerze super.
