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.

500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with a small head that reduces quickly. Good hoppy aroma. Some mild tropical fruit flavours quickly buried under mountains of bitter hops and intense grapefruit. An exceptionally long bitter finish. Refreshing and satisfying. Love it.

ChtiBreizh (323) - Rennes, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2015
33cl bottle. Hazy golden with an average frothy head. Loads of fruity hops, grassy, light biscuit. Bitter finish. Some mild sweetness and a big body for this abv make it very round. A winner.

Vighals (2235) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2015
Gulbrun noe tåkete med høyt hvitt skum. Lukter syrlige epler. Også syrlig i smak, men noe fruktsødme er der også. Lett medium lang avslutning.

olliejobbins (1522) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with pillowy white head. Aroma is citrus, slightly tart hops, grass and sherbet lemon. Lovely delicate citrus taste. Oranges, lemons and other fruits - mangoes and melon. Dry hoppy finish.

Cunningham (6051) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2015
Tasty little fresh devil at only 3,6%!
Clear golden stuff with a huge white head that last a long time. Quite floral and grapefruithoppy aroma. Niiiiice! Medium (light) body and a fine fresh carbonation. Grapefruit hoppy, floral and some pine. Lasting flavor!
[Bottle from Gulating in Arendal, Norway]

kajser27 (629) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 27, 2015
Yellow colored, strong soapy white lasting head. Aroma is malty, grains, citrus, herbal and floral hops. Taste is low to medium sweet malt, quite grainy, medium to strong citrus, herbal and floral hoppy bitterness. Lasting bitter aftertaste. Light bodied, moderate to low carbonation. Nice, easy and refreshing.

Fashawn (492) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 18, 2015
Aroma molto deciso, presente, porta un bel po’ di arancia, anche del pompelmo, magari una suggestione tropicale che ricorda l’ananas, e l’erba appena tagliata. Buona l’intensità, anche una discreta pulizia. In bocca sembra di ritrovare una arancia sia liquida che croccante, che si accompagna ad un leggerissimo imbocco di caramello e toffee, prima di una sferzata decisa che vira sull’amore vegetale. Ritorna un po di pepe nel retrogusto.

Inbreak (3324) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2015
15.09.2015, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Big slightly fizzy-creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry floral, weeds, hay, leafs, flowers, moss, light malts, hops, minerals, bark. Taste is dry and harsh, bark, weeds, hay, hops, grass, light malts, minerals, medicine. Longlasting bitterness, harsh mouthfeel. Not really my cup of tea...

berkshirejohn (5390) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. Pale straw with a tight white head; citrus aroma with some pine resin thrown in for good measure; a big grapefruit taste; and a crisp clean grapefruit finish. Lots of flavour at a low ABV.

johndoughty (4587) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Yellow and slightly hazy. Hoppy with a bitter finish. An amazing amount of flavour and body considering its low strength. Nearly put this one back on the shelf-so glad I did not.

KyotoLefty (8121) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. Clear gold, oily, a bit of bubbles. Grassy, pissy hop nose, NZ I would guess, grapefruit, light malt. Very hoppy flavor, Kiwi all the way. Grapefruit rind and pith, cat piss, astringent herbs and leaves. Interesting. Light honeyed malts in the back. Long, burning hop finish. A bit too much like hop tea, really, but nice.
