What the label says:

We were the first brewery in the UK to commercially brew with Citra back in 2009 and such were its unique qualities, this single hop variety beer became a permanent fixture.

A refreshing beer with pungent grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

What the Beerdrinker says:

The beer is very pale and clear.  The nose is very clear grapefruit with lychee and peach tones.  The taste is overwhelmingly of grapefruit with just a hint of sweetness.  It leaves a bitter citric taste in the mouth long after swallowed.  It’s great if you like grapefruit, but less so if you don’t.
