Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange, white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, oranges and mandarin. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of malt with the tropical fruit and citrus fruits. Nice bitterness accompanies the lemon/grassy notes.

allmyvinyl (3174) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Hazy orange yellow pour. Massive white head, high carbonation. Tropical fruit and grapefruit aromas. Taste has a decent bitterness, but the palate is a tad thin. Good though.

jerd16 (194) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Fresh Mango and tropical fruits on the nose. Replicated in taste - but fleeting. Immediately devoured by a rather astringent and lasting bitterness, building long after. Mouth-feel is a little watery. Not particularly well-rounded but bold tasting.

ElectroMod (119) - - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle bought from Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a hazy orange colour, with a thin, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is very fruity, with orange/citrus being the stand out. Taste is very immediately dry with notes of lemon, pine. On first sip wasn’t too sure, but second and third have me sold that this is a very excellent, refreshing beer.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/2/13] Cask at Euston Tap in London. Slightly hazy golden. Hoppy aroma with overripe tropical fruits. Flavor of fruity hops, some citrus and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Good and easy-drinking.

Juha (31) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
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.

MalcolmTucker (733) - SCOTLAND - OCT 7, 2013
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.
