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.

imaragingbull (575) - Sydney, - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours lightly hazed clear gold with decent white head, with some lace. Aromas of oats, pine, citrus, lychees and grass over a light malt toffee canvas. Medium light body, med-high carbonation; hints of toasted malts, sweet light caramel but citrus and lychees round out the hop flavour, finishing light refreshing and hoppy.

rferrey (149) - Huelva, SPAIN - OCT 9, 2017
Una APA con carácter pese a su poco alcohol. Aroma ligeramemte ahumado, sabor limon, cítricos, con un marcado amargor que perdura y con carga importante de lupulo

TheCeeMan (25) - Ilkeston, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 Pours golden, clear and with a brilliant white foamy head. Aroma very lively and full of fruity notes. Taste fresh and citric but not sharp. Very well hopped, strong but subtle and not overbearing. A classic in my book.

3.2
surething_ii (670) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 23, 2017
Bottle at Smokies Hazy yellowish with steady white head. Aroma of citruses and somewhat sour. Tastes bit hoppy, light lemonish, medium bitter. Good

3.4
jooilakon (256) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Said 4,6 % on my bottle at GBK, Oxford. Fruity aromas. Clear golden, almost no head. Very hoppy and fruity with lychee and grapefruit notes. Bitterness and sweetness are well balanced. Good beer!

3.7
Benters (48) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Pours light golden, clear with average carbonation. Minimal white head which disappears quickly. Aroma of new world hops dominates, picking up grapefruit and gooseberries. Taste is dominated by the hops, slightly fruity with long, bitter finish. A good example of an American Pale Ale, light and refreshing with nice hop hit.

3.8
Gluepot (685) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
A dank and hoppy nose from a golden body, thin white head. There is a really fresh zestiness to the taste, and this is not a brand new bottle. Citrus hops featuring lemon and orange lead the way, with pepper, biscuit malt and a strong effervescence adding to the taste experience. Nice density and body for a 4.2% offering

AcctError487340 (22) - - AUG 18, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 Cask at the Old Fountain, Old Street. Bright and clear light gold, white lace foam. Lovely clean, dry flavour with a citrus bite. For a single hop beer this is hard to beat

3.5
ekstedt (6944) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2017
Cask at GBBF 2017. Clear golden. Bready malt, tropical fruit hops, slightly sulphury. Dry, medium to high bitterness.

3.8
Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Cask @Malt & Hops, Leith [on or about 22.07.2017]. Pours golden yellow, small white head. Nose is toffee, grapefruit, quite tart. Taste is more grapefruit, some orange, big citrus fruits in general.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Citra is one of my favourite beers. It's very hoppy and is a very nice session beer. But it's bigger, stronger brother - Green Devil, also by Oakham Ales - is another of the beers that they regularly have on at my local pub on a permanent basis.
