I do not like the direct translation of
"pungente" because it has generally a negative connotation. Tangy is the positive equivalent of it. "Citrina" again is the same as tangy. Therefore, really, you need only one word for the whole thing.
Your suggested "citrine" does not go. It is the color of a precious stone and the citrina does not exist in English.
