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.

Cask @ Gallows bird, real ale festival. Clear golden, thin head. Looking great. Lovely hoppy grapefruity aroma, some herbal notes. Flavor has fruity hoppyness, very bitter, grapefruit. Wow. This. Is. Good.

johndoughty (4418) - 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 (7874) - 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.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. Some lacing left as the white head slowly slides down the glass. Lightly hazy pale golden body. It’s piney and resiny on the nose, with some citrus peel and a little touch of pale malts. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with a little malty touch in the back. Resins, pine cones and citrus zest. Medium body and a nice carbonation. Lasting dry and bitter finish. Very easy drinkable and tasteful this one, sure quenches the thirst. 150808

Hanoi (618) - 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.
