M_Sack (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Bronze/orange, off white frothy head with heavy lacing. Aromas of grapefruit with strong caramel backbone. Immediate grapefruit bitterness, mid palate pine and an earthy, biscuity finish. Good balancing malt background tames a hop forward beer. Slightly over carbonated ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ForlornHope (357) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. The first whiff shows that this is one hoppy beer - pine resin galore with an earthiness that reminds me of a patch of nettles on a hot day. The sip has a little sweetness, immediately followed with a massive bitterness. There is a juicy maltiness in the background, but the overwhelming taste is of nettle, wood and resin. As you would guess, a raspingly dry finish. I found it slightly unbalanced, but I suspect the hopheads put there would like this.

BeerViking (3846) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Cask at Pigs Ears, Richmond upon Thames. Copper coloured with a thin head and a very faint haze, good hoppy grapefruit and toffee aroma, sharp fruit, nuts and biscuity malt in the body, then a refreshing dry spicy finish.
