johndoughty (4458) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle ( one pint ) Unusual slightly hazy appearance.Hoppy bitterness with some sourness. Not as good as many of their beers and a bit of a let down.

jjsint (1464) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Cask at the Beacon Hotel, Sedgley. Light gold, not quite clear with a thin white head. Pineapple, coriander and buttermilk scent. Taste is hoppy bitter with a solid malt base and a bit of spice at the fore. Not completely balanced, but still quite good although I was expecting more.

jamestulloch (2221) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky golden/amber body with a thick off-white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of peach, mango and green hops. Flavour of orange, juicy pineapple and lime. Medium body with a smooth, oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A crisp, hoppy beer in cask-like condition. I love this brewery - their recent beers have been excellent.

Bottle. Cloudy orange with a stable white head. Smell of citrus and tropical fruits. Sweetish, fruity (peach, orange, grapefruit), a bit of malt, finishes with pleasant hops bitterness. Light-medium bodied, smooth and easy drinking. Quite nice.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 26, 2015
568 ml bottle from Birra+. Dark amber, extremely hazy, with a nice, creamy and persistent off white head. On the nose citrus and lemon peel upfront, then slightly tropical and dank, with al a hint of that cat piss/animal aroma. Overall quite earthy and slightly spicy, not "in your face" hoppy, but decent enough. Definitely better in the mouth, even though it’s much more malty than usual. Nicely bitter from start to finish, quite juicy and not too dry, more than subtle caramel/dark honey sweetness. Herbal and hoppy aftertaste. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. I love Pacific hops and I was expecting a slightly more exciting beer, but it’s above average, no doubts about that.
