Big aromas of tropical and citrus fruit leading to a malty base with grapefruit hoppiness and a bitter finish.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Cask at the St. Albans Beer Festival 2013. Poured a hazy amber with a thin, scummy head. Sweet aromas of orange rind, coconut and mango. Initial flavours were also quite sweet; caramel, sweet tropical fruits and some grapefruit hops coming in. Palate is grass and hop resin mixed with some toffee sweetness. Didn’t seem to reach its potential, which was possibly the fault of the way it was served.

Gravicask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2010)
Big simcoe and cascade fruity hop aroma. Mid gold. Tasty and refreshing. Big fruity body, lots of hops, but very well balanced with sweet malts supporting them.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #11 at Cambridge Winter Beer Festival on 21 January 2011. Mid gold colour. Hazy appearance, possibly from the hop oils, of which there were plenty. Quite mineral/slaty feel. Dry and distinctly hoppy. Rather grapefruity on the palate with some light biscuit malt backup. Maybe a little austere - certainly not a fruity, blowsy US style IPA. Strong bitterness on the finish and in the aftertaste. But, overall, well balanced and very enjoyable.
