One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

Bottled (backlog). Pale ambery orange colour with a mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is some tropical fruits, mild catpissy notes as well as some slight sweet malts. Flavour is zesty, some nectar, mild wooden notes as well as some slight sweet malty and toffeeish notes.

Taste is fruity and bitter, peach, orange peel, tangerine, some caramel. Medium body, average carbonation, fresh grassy bitter finish. Decent IPA.

KW92 (864) - ❤ WARSZAWA ❤, POLAND - SEP 2, 2015

BEST BEFORE: 11 march 2015
WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno złota, zamglone. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Na pierwszym planie zapach cukierków ślazowych (karmel/zioła). W tle owoce tropikalne i cytrusy.
SMAK: Sporo karmelu i miodu. Posmak ziołowy i lekko cytrusowy. Goryczka średnia, nieco alkoholowa.
OGÓLNIE: Świetne piwo, absolutnie moje klimaty: cukierki ślazowe w smaku i aromacie, plus całość niezwykle intensywna i tu i tam. Jednak, żeby nie było tak "cukierkowo", to należy zwrócić uwagę na wadę w aromacie i smaku pod postacią miodu...

ALLOVATE (2769) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2015
A little past its drink-by date, but the others have stood the test of time so onwards and upwards.
At just on cool and into a snifter. Slight haze to a deep, burnished orange body. Head depletes with just as much haste as it plumed. Aroma is deeply resinous with plump fruit like blood orange, tangerine and apricot nectar with a lot of sweet and tangy stewed rhubarb and plums. Plummy and jammy on the palate. Hops have melded into the biscuity malt profile. Alcohol is held at bay in the fruity, sticky swallow. Quite yeasty unlike the others but that is down to age. Slightly medicinal (cough medicine) in the aftertaste. Yeah, didn’t hold up too well. Quite thin but sweet and sticky. Hops have faded to esters. Bitterness is low. Would have been a cracker fresh. I’ll stick with the Comet! (33cL, BB 11/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Shmupi. Hazy amber, white ring. Marzipan and bubblegum aroma, a little sweet, bubblegum taste. Medium body, fizzy, bubblegum-like finish.

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours orange, single finger white head. Aroma of light spice, then some light malts and loads of citrus! Taste of initial light malts, slightly grainy, then orange, lemon, pine, grass, herb. Very nice!

tomer (2523) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 3, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, light hazy orange color, aroma of orange marmalade and biscuit with some hay, fruity biscuity flavor with a citrusy hint, light to medium bitterness and sourness. A little old and not too exciting.
