A pale and intensely hoppy beer. Enticing tropical fruit aromas, finished with a good level of thirst quenching, almost peppery bitterness.
This beer is rapidly gathering awards and a reputation for flying off the bar in record time – why not try some to find out why?

MrHangover (3680) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, shared by jmgreenuk. Pours a clear golden beer with a very thin white head on top. Aroma is rather grassy, buttery, malty and a very faint touch of tropical fruits. Flavor is very thin, light sweet, watery, and quite uninteresting unfortunately. Virtualy no aftertaste. Decent session ale, but nothing more than that.

Garrold (3364) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Cask at MoCa, Matlock. Just spent an hour looking at carpets. This beer has perked me up, no end. Hoppy, pineapply, refreshing and drily bitter. Infinitely better than discussing the merits of neutral tones, opposed to colour.

Polished clear gold colour, bright white head. Looks good. Citrus aroma, slight tropical fruit notes and a tad musty. Lots of tropical fruit flavours, melon, peach, passion fruit, some honey sweetness. Good condition. Very good session ale.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Half-pint, gravity pour at the 1st Hodnet Sports and Social Club Beer Festival on 17 Aug 2013. Light blonde in colour with a thinning white head. Yet another UK golden brew with a citrus feel to the nose and taste: how fed up am I of these style of beers? A LOT! Nothing wrong with the beer, it’s just me: everyone else (almost) loves these sort of brews, or so they tell me. Scored objectively: glad I only had a half though.
