Hazy golden, thin white bubble. Great Nelson Sauvin aroma, pine as well. Very flat but it works. Light drinkable body, very English. Good stuff again. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

sic1314 (3378) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2012
On cask at Borefts. Im assuming this is new as the standard SPA pumpclip had the use of the different hop from the standard citra noted. Poured clear and golden white an almost white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Fairly full mouthfeel and a whole host of citrus among the restrained hops with some pleasant bitterness. Aftertaste is quite dry and more-ish.
