Christian (11804) - Odense, - NOV 12, 2012
Tap take-over at Mikkeller Bar. Golden with a lasting white head. Fruity aroma with peachy notes, and quite a bit of diacetyl. Sweet malty and fruity flavour with a decent bitter finish

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
September 15, 2014 - at Old Coffee House; handpull. Bubbly yellow pour, decent creamy/bubbly off-white head. The aroma surprised the hell out of me - lush tropical fruit, moderate alcohol, and hints of pine and spruce in behind - my my!! The taste followed - definite sticky icky cannabis resin bitterness jumps up and asserts itself against the solid ripe fruit malt backbone - full-bodied, bitter, surprisingly balanced, with a nice long juicy finish to it. Beer of the day at the pub.

Keg, King William IV, Leyton, 3rd April 2015. Hoxton Special at Bunny Basher. Descent white lacing, gorgeous hazy golden/lime colour. Taste is lime cordial, citrus, hop resin, pilth and pine. Excellent bitterness. Clean and fruity. Just what I needed after a long journey. Top.

Garrold (2689) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Tap. Tapped, Leeds. Clear, amber colour. Sturdy halo of white head. Very pungent, verging on medicinal, hop. Pine resin, and a hint of smoke. Touch of oily herb. Taste is herby, oily bitter. Malty sweetness just balances out the hoppage. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Finishes, long, lightly smoked bitter.

zimbo (765) - SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2015
The deceiving banal appearance of this beer masks something very special. A light slightly hazy glow and whispy head cannot contain its waves of sweet tropical bitterness on the nose or the ripe light ripe piney floral bitternes. Quenchingly deliciously quite gorgeous.

jmgreenuk (5840) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 3, 2015
Tap at the King William IV. Poured a very slightly hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma is citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a super strong grass pine needle citrus hop palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. A real hop fest.
