Pours clear orange amber (be careful with the yeast cediment) with nice fluffy beige head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is piny, fruity, a bit sweet, caramel and citric. Acidy citric mouthfeel. Fruity, citric, piny, hoppy and sweet flavor, very nice and different. Acidy fruity palate. Finishes with a very nice tart bitter bite with a citrus touch. mR_fr0g (14028) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Collected from the brewery on saturday morning. Pours to a vibrant hazy orange colour with a lasting fine head. The aroma of those citra hops is awesome, sweet citrus fruits with canned peaches. The initial flavour follows those sweet aromas and then comes the hop bitterness and a slight alchol bite. Nice carbonation level lifts those aromasof the palete. Nice residual bitterness that fades to a reasonably sweet after taste. The is a damn fine beer.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 Bottle at Mes Tasting. Cloudy golden-brown pour with a slight head. Lightly tart tangerine, dirt and other citrus on the nose. Earthy, medium sweet flavor, very bitter with zesty, rindy orange and tangerine. Medium to full in body with average carbonation. Quite warming on the finish, earthy, light sugar, mild cheese, light, sticky pine. Very nice. gunnar (9923) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours cloudy orange with a 1 inch snowy white creamy head. Strong resiny and fruity hops aroma, pine forest after rain and some heavy malts as well.Taste is on the dry hoppy side, ripe orange and a long medium sweet pineapple aftertaste. Very good.

7- Very fruity, mango and citrussy, hop aroma, but a touch plasticky too.
4 Decent orange, thick frothy white head. A touch hazy as it wasn’t poured perfectly.
7 Pretty quaffable combination of sweet caramelly and biscuity malts, and super-sweet-and-fruity hops. Some pineyness too.
3 Smooth palate, OK carbonation. Finish follows predictably from the taste, but alas had some nasty kidney and meaty hints initially.
14 Very easy to drink for its strength. Alas it leaves me more thirsty than I started as it’s almost US sweet. Very tasty, but no wow.
Bottle at Bottle Shop Canterbury. Lovely peppery hop aroma. A little cheese but lovely in mouth. Just a great citra finish biting and wonderful. Just a tasty beer. Good orange tangerine fruit sherbert hop finish. Very tasty. DruncanVeasey (8444) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange with an undiminishing, lacing white foam and a full veil of sediment. I haven’t had much experience of Citra (Pictish, Oakham, Brodies)- but what I’ve had I’ve loved. Here, judging by the aroma, is the most beautiful English beer to have ever passed my lips; a neat sweat of papaya-scented armpit, lush pink fruits and dishcloth. Then you taste it. It begins. It carries on with those silvery-haired, finely chlorophylled tones; nettles, Sauvignon Blanc, overripe nectarines dropped on a tiny, brittle platform of rich tea biscuit. You need a little platform of biscuit to crawl onto just to stop you screaming, and there it is. Good job there isn’t a pub at the end of my road selling this evil, hallucinatory fluid, that’s all I can say.
