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.

(Bottle) A clear bright gold colour with a small white head. Big citrus punch. Crisp and refreshing, a tiny bit of sweetness, medium bitter flavour with a dry bitter finish. Low carbonation so a nice mouthfeel. One of the best supermarket APA "swills" around. Morrisons 1.50 (4 for 6)

UjoKlobasa (785) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, zest. Heavy bitter. Intense for lower ABV but unbalanced and not pleasant to me.

explosivedog (661) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with little head. Smell is lots of resin and a little fruit. Taste is resin and grapefruit. Would expect more lemon from a citra single hop, and the resin is a bit much for me.

mice (887) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Samean kullankeltainen olut niukalla, mutta pitsi jttvll valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu erittin miellyttv, greippinen ja hedelminen. Suorastaan houkuttelee maistamaan olutta. Maku ei sitten ihan pysty vastaamaan heitettyyn haasteeseen. Maku greippinen ja sitrusmainen ja jlkipuraisussa paljon greippist katkeruutta. Tm menee jo oman maun yli, eik oikein toimi belgifanille ihan toivotulla tavalla.

alexmate (118) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2016
A big grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry bomb. It is comparable to the likes of Brewdogs Punk IPA. A very pleasant everyday ale, ideal for the warmer months.
