Pikkio (11) - ITALY - APR 19, 2014
Hazy amber with a white and fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruits and resins with agrumes notes. Body is a bit viscous but refreshing. Tastes a lot of fruits, but has strong malty hints which recall dried fruits rather than fresh fruits. Agrumes and resin comes again within a dry hoppy finish which is not too bitter though. A very well balanced beer, drinkable, tasty and not too bitter. defnitely recommended .

jjsint (2333) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Amber, clear with considerable white head and lacing. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of malt and hay. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then... I can feel my tongue dry. Wow. Bitter on a US IPA scale but also nicely balanced. A well executed beer to cherish and remember.

Keg, 23 Club, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small white head. Juicy citrus and grassy hop nose wise. Tropical fruits, sweet malt and some very tidy hop bitterness unfolded in the flavour. Tasty stuff, can’t fault it.
