2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden piss colour. Huge frothy loose cauliflower head. Aroma is grapefruit and pacific fruits, peach mostly, some mango. Taste is some bitterness but mostly tropical fruit juice with some astringency. Aroma promises more but taste is lacking but quite refreshing still. Grows on you the taste does. Nice overall.

Cask at Caley Sample Rooms. Very bitter with the priminent US hop flavour. I’m not sure that this style of beer works on cask - I’d prefer this colder and with some more carbo.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy bronze, light carbonation and lingering head. Nose is fruity, pine, lemon, lime, and something tropical, passion fruit maybe. Taste is lemon, peach, pineapple, with a buzzy carbonation, and slight biscuity malt and bitter finish. Absolutely delicious.

Taste: Very sharp and bitter. Taste is of leafy hops, lime and pine.
Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation fizz.
