Double Hopped Citra IPA

Brewery: Oakham Ales for Marks and Spencer

ABV: 5.9%

Bottle Size: 330ml

Taste:

Strong and hoppy, with a powerful aftertaste

Colour:

Pale yellow, hazy appearance

Aroma:

Balanced hops and citrus

Final Verdict:

I have been recommended the Oakham Ales Citra on many occasions, and enjoyed it when I tried it previously, so thought the Marks and Spencer version was worth a try.

It’s not as citric as I thought it would be, the hoppy flavours are more powerful and almost take over the drink. It may be because it’s a warm evening, but I feel like the beer is slightly dry, and not as refreshing as I’d hoped.

It’s not a bad beer. It’s very drinkable, and I’d happily sit down and drink more of them, it’s just not something I would place at the top of my shopping list.
