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?

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 (6404) - 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.

Stumblor (64) - - JUN 19, 2013
Pours clear pale yellow with a decent head. Smell slightly bitter, with a very lager aroma. Metallic almost. Taste is bright and lemony, grapes, but not particularly flavorful. Pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Cask@ Clarendon Leicester. Hazy gold colour. Citrus aroma. Citrus and almost floral taste with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Rather nice actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
Hand pulled at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Golden. Drying flavour - like flayed skin resting on the back of a barn door in Poland. A ’UK’ flavour hops wise, which means a bit of flecked fruit skin, with some calligraphers’ handbook. OK. Outflanked.

Theydon_Bois (17267) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man, Englefield Green, Midlands BF, 15/03/13. Clear pale golden with a thin white head which soon dissipates. Nose is light pineapple, pale malt, hops, orange squash. Taste comprises citrus, orange, light pineapple, hops, touch of grapefruit, straw. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish. Ok stuff with a bit of hop thang going down.
