3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 13/11/2011. Deep gold with a slight, off-white head. Big tropical fruit and herbal hop aroma. Flavour had some solid malts, more fruit and a rasping, hoppy finish. Another winner from Arbor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours light hazy amber, with a massive white head. The nose is green hop, floral and light cheese. The taste is oily green hop, pine, resin, subtle sweetness, leather, floral, alcohol warmth, ginger and fresh citrus pith, with a long, aggressive bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask handpull at Craft Beer Co. Gold clear lasting beige bubbly head. Full in mouth. A shed load of hop on this. The green bullet can just about handle it. Enough fruit to go along with the harsh bitterness. Bitter as hell on the finish. Harsh bitterness is just about kept in check by the tropical fruit. Outstanding beer.

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Cask at CRAFT Beer Co, London on 5th November 2011. Slightly hazy amber with lacing off-white head. Hoppy, yeasty aroma then explosion of rich-and-intense grassy bitter hoppiness in-mouth. Intensely bitter, long-lasting finish and an engaging zingy texture. Exquisite.
