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.

Clear amber pint. Hop aroma with a sour fruit edge and flavour is similar with a sharp hop edge on the tongue.

Aroma: Sweet caramel and freshly cut lime.
Appearance: Hazy amber body with a medium white head that holds well. Light carbonation. Great lacing.
Taste: Very sharp and bitter. Taste is of leafy hops, lime and pine.
Palate: Medium body with a foamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation fizz.
Overall: Definitely on for the hop heads - very bitter and aggressive. Easily the bitterest APA Iíve tried to date.

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 wasnít too sure, but second and third have me sold that this is a very excellent, refreshing beer.

Cask at CPK, Pimlico on 18th May 2011. Slightly hazy amber with thin partly lacing yellowy-white head. Fruity aroma. Richly hoppy in-mouth - grapefruit and floral hops rounded by a broad and rich mal. As liquid drains, a sharp hop note returns paving the way for a delectable clean hoppy aftertaste. Excellent.

Cask, handpump at The Live & Let Live, Cambridge, 03.06.11 Pours mid amber with a white head leaving a light filminess across the top of the beer. Fruity and with a goodly dose of hops on the nose and soft pithy grapefruit and in the mouth with a juicy refreshing grapefruit bite. A great beer to try alongside the Oakham Scarlet Macaw and whilst I preferred the latter I think that this would be easier to drink a session of, very good beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9
