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.

Brenhophead (547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2013
500mL bottle. Pours light clear golden/straw with a very small white head and a nice biscuit/fruity/doughy aroma. It has a complex flavour with hints of doughy yeast, an abundance of sweet fruity/citrus hops, and a light backing of biscuit like malt. This beer impressed me. I would love to try it fresh (BB jan 2014).

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 11, 2013
11/05/2013 Ma che siete venuti a f (cask). Bionda, limpida, schiuma bianca molto abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori fruttati e floreali, con sentori agrumati, leggere note di malto. In bocca amara decisa, forse non proprio il cocktail di luppoli che preferisco, ma indiscutibilmente buona. Corpo leggero, carbonazione soft. Discreta.

ElDesmadre (1524) - Mikołw, POLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of lime, white grapes, ripe pear, pineapple and subtle resin. Assertively hopped, yet not overhopped. Light body, crisp hoppy taste, strong bitterness. Flavour is fruity hoppy upfront, while grassy, herbaceously hoppy in the finish. Remarkable that it gets even better when it warms up a bit. A great everyday beer.
