Fin (7351) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011
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

JorgeLee (1173) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Cask at the Lyric. Deepish amber colour, thin head. An aggressively hoppy ale. Pine and grapefruit citrus, bitter, long finish. The malts are just enough to hold it, but still a hop forward beer. Holds a lot of flavour for the abv, which is to be applauded, and this is very refreshing and moreish. A very good effort.

Beersiveknown (2850) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
Factoberfest 2011 .A good example of a new world pale ale this beer was pithy, resinous and clean with a floral aroma. The beer really benefitted from its 60 minutes continual hopping with centennial, cascade and amarillo,

500ml bottle. Mid-clouded orange gold with a whipped egg white top. Fruit Salad chew, melon, Feta and lime peel aroma. Monkey nut, dunked biscuit and almond maltiness lurking beneath slightly sharp limey hop and bristling leafiness. Lean and balanced.
