4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes explosifs de fruits tropicaux (fruit de la passion, mangue, goyave). Robe blonde, légèrement trouble, petite dentelle et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, un malt croustillant supporte le houblon très fruité et aromatique en procurant de délicates notes de pain blanc. Finale sèche et amère. Très aromatique et particulièrement juteux et fruité. Excellent !

The brewers have demonstrated in a beer exactly what it feels like to pick hops in the field

330mL bottle 2012 harvest, pours a clear almost straw colour but the aroma is amazing.. smells like fresh cut grapefruit/mandarin/orange wow. Those aroma’s really flow through to the flavour and they all mingle well, very low level of pale malt flavour and this makes the hops shine! i see so much potential for this hop.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 There’s a lot of sweet citrus on the nose, followed by very earthy notes (almost like a stale bag of chips) and then a lot of resin at the finish. All up, the aroma it’s a bit unpleasant for my taste. In the mouth there’s some orange flavour with a fairly restrained hop presence and more of that yeasty earthiness. There’s little of the hoppy bitterness you’d expect from a beer that bills itself as being hopped to the hilt, and it finishes a little short.
20 August 2012 - Had another bottle of this, not realising I’d had it before. I didn’t notice so much earthiness this time, and certainly no stale bag of chips, so I wonder if I got a bad bottle last time. That’s not to say I don’t get any yeast - certainly it’s still there. Other than that, the flavours were the same as last time. Still a little thin and short on the palate.

A citrus smelling beer with a lemon/lime feeling about it. Looks fine and had a good head. Really enjoyed and is a great summer session beer.

Slightly cloudy yellow with lasting head. Strong hop nose, tropical fruits and citrus, pleasant bitterness in the taste, drinks well though a touch more body would do the trick.

Had this on tap at the Wheatsheaf, Adleaide througha hopinator stuffed with an experimantal Australian hop. the aroma was big, herbal and fruity hop character with some quite complex floral notes too. A clean, quite pale in colour beer with the added hop hit from the hopinator. Nicely done!

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2011 Very surprised by this one’s rating. Aroma is fantastic. Lots of tropical fruits. Lychee, passionfruit, citrus. Less fruits in the flavour but still a little bit there, hops play a small role. Light pale malts back the beer. Much better than some are letting on to be

330ml bottle. Golden bright amber colour with a large thick white head that is deep like fresh snow. Aroma of freshly picked oranges and mandarins with a piney backdrop from the hop cones. Zingy and zesty in the mouth.
