hawthorne00 (3046) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 2, 2014
Amber with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of pineapple, mandarins, lime leaf, grapefruit, pine needles. Medium carbonation, creamy texture. Juicy and fruity but not very sweet. Hay and a mixture tropical and citrus fruit, pine creeps up towards a fairly bitter and dryish finish.

ALLOVATE (2719) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Brilliant, orange amber on first pour. Hazed on second. Head is a plume of soapy, white suds Piney, resinous, spicy and herbaceous, whole hop nose inches stinging nettles, vine clippings, camphor, sap resin, lemon balm and pandan. Full on aroma for a modest strength ale. Quite piney and dry with a backbone of dusty malts and dried herbs on the palate. Creamy and foamy in feel with a moderate to light body. Camphorous and lasting, peaking bitterness rolls in every sip. Overall hogely resinous with a plump, hoppy aftertaste. Low esters, low fruit restrained to grapefruit notes and little else. Madly sessionable stuff. (50cL, BB 29/09/15, Luckies Liquor)

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Colston Yard, Bristol 15/05/2011. Pale amber with a decent white head. Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit, oranges and pine resin. Flavour was also dominated by citrus fruits and pine, with a touch of sweetish malt providing some balance, before a very bitter finish with accompanying pine. Excellent.
