Cloudy amber ale with a frothy head. Aroma is, unsurprisingly, strong hop but it has a tinge of citrus and possibly a sweeter fruit to it as well. Taste matches that though not as strong as you might expect from the scent, but it’s balanced nicely. There’s fruit in the finish but almost a toasty hint as well. Delicious.

Nice deep gold. Thin soapy head.
Nose is full of grapefruit, passion fruit and pineapple. The hint of malty sweetness is a nice invitation to a good time.
Nicely carbonated first mouthful. Brief kiss of piney limey vapors and then its all about getting naked and jumping in the sack with a bed full of bitter hops. The hops are crackling fresh, resinous and full of herbaceous flavor notes, with grass, raw Kafir lime leaf and pine sap.
A very nice effort and reminiscent of another well hopped ale, Buxton’s Axe Edge, which still stays on top.
Again, bottle conditioned, so leave that last 10ml or so alone unless you like a mouthful of yeasty goodness.

500ml bottle in Bristol. Dark amber appearance with small eggshell-white head that lasts. Pineapple, passionfruit, lychee, grapefruit and pine needle on the nose with a robust malt bill and firm bitterness on the tongue. Nicely balanced whilst still packing a punch.
