The head is good, the body is gold-brown. It smells hoppy, fruity, hoparomatic, delicious. The taste is hoppy, aromatic, hoparomatic, delicious. Bit bitter, flavourful.

Too much like an IPA, very bitter, but good smell and taste improves with temperature...or deadened taste buds...

I know nothing of the rating system of beer other than what I learned in college, cheap and cheaper. However; I am willing to learn. Please ignore my numbers as I test the water to learn what they really mean. The first thing that caught my attention with this beer was the crisp flowery, spicy, citrus aroma when brought to lip. The hops were there and a bit on the dry side (for my taste) though evenly through the drink as after. Overall crisp and more flower and citrus than spice. Thank you for supporting my first foreay into beer snobbery. Talk about a geek. Sitting alone (David!) Texting beer descriptions at a bar on a Tuesday afternoon.

Good amber colour with a nice collar of white head that clings to the side of the glass leaving satisfying lace. Aromas of mandarin flesh, basement Belgian yeast aroma, buttercups and nasturtiums... yes, nasturtiums. Good body, silky and soft, full mouthfeel. Really is oily and generous. Flavours of cloves, biscuits, golden syrup and mace. Describes more like some sort of dessert than a beer. The finish is enduring and brings flavours of orange zest, red capsicum and other citrus tang. This is a seriously good effort for such an early release by this brewer. I’m keen to see what else he chances his arm at.
