COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

Keg at the hanging bat. A little cheesy, dry bitter, light pineapple, a bit like juice, bit too cold.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Cask in the Macc, Macclesfield. Pale almost clear gold with a medium white head. This is a hard style to excite me and this pretty much did. Drinkable. Can throw away a few. Nice session ale.

Golden with white head. Aroma and taste: a lot of hops with citrus flavour. Soft and easy to drink. Good.

ciaranc (932) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 30, 2014
330 ml bottle from Redmonds. Pale, cloudy straw yellow, frothy white head. Delicate floral and perfume hops in the aroma, some citrus and lemon zest notes too. Light pale malt flavour followed by a decent bitter bite, grapefruit. Some biscuit notes toward the finish. Quite dry, fairly fizzy too. Lots of flavour for such low ABV, a very good sessioner.

mgajdaczewa (555) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
W aromacie przeważają wyraźne, trawiaste nuty od chmielu, jest świeżo i orzeźwiająco. W smaku czuć mocną goryczkę o lekko pestkowym charakterze i długim finiszu z lekkim winogronowym posmakiem, brak obecności treści słodowej (całkowicie przytłumiona przez goryczkę), co nie kłóci się z dobrą pijalnością i gładkością piwa (największy jego atut). Fajne.

Psytron (1346) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Smell of soap andcitrus. Citrus colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, spruce, hops. Flat carbon. Quite basic IPA.

caesar (5230) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Almost clear yellow color, short head. Aroma is a bit grassy and flowery hop, some grainy malt. Probably not the freshest example and it clearly has hurt the beer. Bit watery in taste, some bitterness. Bit watery stuff for now. Probably was a lot better from bottle and even better than that from cask.

Clear blond appearance. Aroma of pale malts and a touch of soap. Very fresh but light tasting. The balance is good. Light carbonation but quite a creamy feel.
