Although an initial bitterness leads to a sweet malty aftertaste, this is a beer all about hops! A straw coloured ale with powerful aromas of tropical fruit. Mango and pineapple may be detected

From the barrel at Great Central beer festival. Pours clear wa pale yellow gold body and white foam top. Aroma has pineapples and tangerines and honey. Taste is medium sourness, medium bitterness, light sweetness, with a sour finish. Palate is light to medium body,thin feel, soft carbonation, astringent, finish. Not as fruity as some Citra based ales. But a refreshing summer beer that is more reliable than our weather.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - OCT 16, 2016
Cask @ Roscoe Head, Liverpool [040916]

Light blonde, clear, thin white head dissipates

Aroma of sharp grapefruit, citrus, lemon, no malt

Taste of light malts, bitter grapefruit zest, bitter citrus hops

Palate - Light body, bit oily, bitter. Finish is very dry, aggressive bitter hops, less fruit, more just strong hop bitterness. The tail is just too bitter.

Overall - Harsh finish. Not a good example of a citra beer - maybe an off day
