3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 23/12/2011. Pours a murky golden/copper with a big head. Has a tremendous, powerful aroma of passionfruit and mango. The flavour is not quite as big, but still very nice. You get sweet fruit (peach, orange and more mango), some caramel malt, and a decent, though not over the top, grapefruity hop finish. Iíve found Bridge Road beers generally disappointing but this one is excellent (as is their Stella single hop).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slow and steady pour reveals a highly charged, translucent, dullish amber beer crowned by an ever growing, fluffy off-white head that lifts a good inch from the glass. Strong, concentrated pineapple and passionfruit nose, almost candyish and sweet with a touch of berry bubblegum and lime zest underneath. Frothy, soapy mouthfeel, quite light in body and a little slick in the swallow. Resinous hops dominate as is the intention but not with the control seen in the Stella Single Hop. Sweet and tangy fruit esters, pronounced passionfruit and candied citrus, a little cantaloupe and lychee. Malt profile, well there really isnít much, a faint touch of toasted and crystal grain lingers on the palate after each sip. Bitterness is moderate, raspy and a little rough in the swallow, with a toothpick woodiness. Not altogether a stand-out, yet I must say though it goes down in lightning speed, before I knew it it was gone. I suppose thatís a plus. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Iíll start with a few words of advice, that really should be on the packaging - this beer is unfiltered, and is best served by pouring 4/5 into a glass, then swooshing the bottle around to stir up the sediment and to form a head. Then, youíre greeted by a murky amber gold, with thin tan foam. Smells wonderful; Passionfruit, elderflower, guava, cassis. Honey and caramel above wattle & lemon myrtle on the palate, before the hops take the reins and drive the long, floral, dry and spicy finish. A big step towards redemption, both in style & execution. Just gets better and better as it warms up.
