andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a nice clear amber colour with a big sticky white head that seems to last a while leaving some lace up the glass. Aromas of pine, fruity, citrus, and grassy hop mix. Flavours are a nicely balanced piney resin and grapefruit hop bitterness, bitterness is high and lingers just enough into the after taste without being harsh, and a crystal malty sweetness.

tomer (2246) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 15, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, light hazy deepish Orange color, aroma of flowers and citrus with a woody hint, light flowery aroma with a light maltiness in the back, grapefruit bitterness which is a bit too strong unbalancing the beer a bit. Still very nice.

mR_fr0g (5824) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s place. Many thanks to Paul for this one. Orange / light amber coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is sweet, orange, floral, light pine needle hop, bit weird on the nose. Flavour is composed of light caramel, biscuit, chewy malts with orange rind and pine. Palate is sticky, hop resin, moderate carbonation. Decent ipa.

Taste comprises pine needle, grapefruit, juicy hops, lemon rind. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop spattering in the close. Decent IPA.

The_Osprey (3458) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s, many thanks to Strokey. 355ml can, 6.5% March 2015. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is mostly Turkish delight and rose with toffee and tangerine. Centennial I’m guessing. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is resinous, dry, astringent floral, orange pith, bitter finish and a little metallic. Good.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can, thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light malts, touch of sweetness. Hops start with smooth pine followed by light hop skunk and a little citrus. Bitterness blossoms strongly in the finish, getting a metallic tang. Not bad, finish a bit awkward.

Scopey (9380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Can shared at Leightons. It pours clear orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, juicy orange, apricot, peach, nectarine, earth, brioche, orange muffin and bready malt. The taste is crisp, rather bitter, orange rind, toasty grass, dank grassy vibe, spice, grapefruit and varnish with a lingering bitter - dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Crisp and tasty. Good bitterness. Very drinkable.
