Pours a massive head with a light amber color.

Smells of citrus, grapefruit-peels, a little bit of lemon and some pine-flavors.

The citrus from the smell is still there, but the grapefruit-peels is more emphasized, alongside some bitter malts and slight sourness. Carbonation is high and body is juicy, yet not super drinkable.

On tap at The King’s Head. Served in a cervoise. Huge fluffy head atop a hazy orange body. Smells of orange hops, lightly floral, and a touch of pepper and caramel malt. Tastes equal parts orange and grassy hops. Toasted malts and a grassy bitter finish. Slick and creamy body. Soft carbonation. Distinctly European take on the style.

Pours a deep golden orange with a sticky white head.

Aroma is citrus and a touch of lychee from dem Citras. Nice. Slight caramel peeks in. I'm thankful it's a light malt character.

Flavor is a little thin but comes with bigger hop flavor and a light malt backbone.

Light in the tongue with low bitterness. What you would expect from a lightweight beer.

A pretty good light hoppy beer.

Hazy amber color with a thick off-white head with good retention.
Delicious sweet aroma of caramel, bread, mango and overripe oranges and pineapples.
Flavor of Belgian yeast, lemon, tangerines, Citra hops, peaches, white grapes, bready malt and brown sugar.
Hints of tea bags. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation.
A fruity and citric Belgian IPA neither American nor English) with a superb aroma and good complexity.

On draft at In De Wildeman, appearence is hazy dirty blonde with sicky, foamy head, white sand colored.

Smell is modestly hoppy citrus.

Taste is bready malt with soft hop citrus flavor.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter, slippery side.

Drinkability is good, solid session ale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to find it.

Bottled on: 22/01/13

A: 1" foamy cream coloured head over murky amber liquid.

S: Lime rind, apricot, peach.

T: Watery malt back bone that underpins a hop presence with lime rind, lemon and apricots.

M: Watery and thin viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: I have never tried a single hop citra beer before to my knowledge and as a brewer this was a good lesson in its characteristics.
