3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Teign Cellars. Peachy, zesty nose with some loveheart candy and some kiwifruit. Pours a hazy gold with a fat, fluffy head. Flavour is very dry with notes of orange peel, lemon pith, pine needles and cloves. Not a lot of sweetness adding balance but that’s ok - the hop whack is the payoff on this one and it pays off in spades. Very nice.

Bottle shade at ChrisO’s pre-GBBF Shindig 2012. Clear orange amber, white head. Nose is tangerine, wet leaves, touch of earthy, pear drops. Taste is tangy, bitter. There’s tangerine, but it’s sour. Really great aroma but taste doesn’t quite live up to it..

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Bruce’s Housewarming Party Tasting, London. Pours faintly hazy, bright gold with a foamy, white head. Big fruit nose with marmalade, orange, tangerine. Medium sweet flavor with some grassy bitterness, dry citrus and tangerine. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Super dry finish with tangerine rind, dry citrus, some abrasive grass. Doesn’t fully come together. A bit overly dry and grassy. It’s still OK, but not great.
