COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Bottle from Plonk. Unique hop aroma (sorachi ace?), like tea tree, some orange/citrus in there too. Quite nice, but definitely a bit different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2013
Draught at Molto. Muddy orange, frothy white top. Banana and citrus hops. Mellow enough in the mouth, but sharp, bitter finish kinda spoiled the nice hop action. Not quite as good as I was expecting, but still quite nice.

Banana hop on the nose - slightly cloying and not boding brilliantly. Pours muddy amber with a fluffy head. Flavour is gooseberry hop with lychee and honey but slightly spoiled by an over-carbed mouthfeel and an out of balance astringency in the finish. Ok, but not great.

Bottle from Brewdog website. A cloudy orange coloured beer with zesty juicy fruit and orange marmalade flavours with a sweet floral hoppy finish.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
Poured out a hazy amber with a thick tan head that never fades. Honey, English malts - plenty of them, orange, ack ... stupid Leffe glass - why does this glass suck so much? Tasty citrus bitterness with a very solid warm toasty malt base, fruit starts with a champagne grape note and quickly gets steamrolled by a sharp, long lasting bitterness, grapefruit, orange. Long bitterness. Interesting aftertaste that I won’t describe because I am being watched....

Jur (374) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2012
Pours a hazy reddish, amber. Almost like a Weißen with some syrup added. Little head, but it stares at you somehow. Nose is modest, dry grass, malted sweetness. Taste is full with sorachi taking the forefront. Fruitiness, by stone fruits and a strange hint of strawberry. Bone dry hoppy finish. Distinctive and original, but very filling. The lingering sweetness does not invite another order though.
