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.

Hanoi (609) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle. Really surprised I’d not rated this. Nose is lemon, lime, light grapefruit hint of lychee. Taste is resin grapefruit rind slight floral perfume hop note in the bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a little thin but that is a product of the low abv. The drink is too thin but has a fantastic amount of taste for the abv.

Great low ABV pale ale. Tropical fruit aroma giving way to a sharp grapefruit bitter finish. While the low ABV would suggest a sessionable beer, the intense bitterness will strip your palate bare after too many. Sounds like a challenge to me!
