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.

Cask, at the Butchers Arms, Herne. Golden pale ale, small head. Lovely Citra aroma of pink grapefruit, hint of mango. Flavour more of the same, pronounced citrus bitterness, hint of grass, string pink grapefruit flavour, bit of mango, lychee... delicious. Very refreshing, couple of pints went down very easily.

VueltaBirrista (98) - Murcia, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2017
Se presenta de color mbar dorado y limpsima al trasluz. Genera una cabeza de espuma muy delgada. Visualmente lo tiene todo para tirarte a ella y beberte el medio litro del tirn. Pero vamos poco a poco. En nariz no nos llevamos ninguna sorpresa. Conociendo el Citra como lo conocemos no es de extraar que huela a ctricos y frutas tropicales. Deliciosa. En boca es muy refrescante, muy fcil de beber. Carcter ctrico y terroso a partes iguales, con un final ligeramente amargo y seco. Adems, baja graduacin, cuerpo medio y con la carbonatacin justa para convertirla en una excelente opcin veraniega.

Onesimus (75) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2017
Yep! It's pungent! The taste followed the nose it's hoppy - big on the grapefruit and small on the gooseberry notes. I didn't detect any details of lychee to soften the acrid pithiness. Very little head but masses of carbonation giving a counterintuitive smoothness to the mouthfeel. It's waaaay to dry for my tastes, but taste it does have in abundance and if dryness is what you enjoy this will hit the spot.

Davros IX (303) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - Bottle at home - A very nice English IPA. A bitter flavour of hops, but with a floral element lurking in the background. A very nice beer for the end of a busy Sunday
