This has the WOW factor for me - glorious sweet concentrated peachy flavour with great lick of bitterness afterwards - very low malt impact which suits me - soooo easy to smash down it’s dangerous - if the aroma was more prominent I’d mark it even higher - my favourite of the single hop release. Bloody fantastic. Like this? Try Garage Project Angry Peaches.

BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with thick white foam head.. Sweet tropical, fruity hops, sweet candy (chewing gum) on the nose.. Real sweet hops & a sherbet vibe upfront.. Going to melon & hoppy middle finishing with sticky fruity hops.. Lots going on.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Hm, har lite svårt att bestämma mig om denna. Den har lite skum bismak men totalt hyfsat trevlig. Lite av en dubbelnatur.

Bit over the consume-by, but what the heck!
Pastel orange and slightly misted with a foamy, rocky white head. Rich, resinous and fruity, clean hops on the nose that are seemingly drenched in grapefruit concentrate, peach and apricots. The palate emulates the aroma displaying a bitter, sharp grapefruit base lifted by notes of pale stonefruit, tangerine and sweet cantaloupe. Carbonation is low. There is a subtle minty note late. Quite light in body with not much to say of malt flavour. This is solid fruit juice pale ale. Very tangy, almost tart in the finish. I love this one. This is a fun beer to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Sessionable stuff despite the strength!! (33cL, BB 17/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours orange-gold, single finger white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, light malts, pineapple, melon. Taste of light grainy malts, then orange, lemon and pinapple with some melon. Very nice.

0,33L bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, fruits, and tangerines. Flavor follows the nose. Body is somewhat watery. Overall: good. It reminds me mandarina hops, which is one of my favorites.
