Bottle shared in London - thanks to Colin. Pours murky gold with minimal head. The nose holds lots of tart citrus, tangerine, herbs. Light sweet flavor with some rindy bitterness, tart lemons, moderate acidity, citric bite. Light bodied with spritz you carbonation. Clean and tart on the finish, some mandarin orange, tangerine, peel. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky orange with quickly dissipating head. The nose is musty, barnyard, earth, bitter-orange, must, touch of grapefruit rind, vanilla and light pepper notes. The taste is bitter-orange, sour, orange juice, grapefruit juice from concentrate, mild acidity, drying wood, light vanilla and some mouth-pucker with a drying finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting stuff, but not my favourite from these guys.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Pours murky and straw-colored with a small, white, bubbly head. The nose is earthy, pungent, grapefruity and bready. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is quite tart and fruity with notes of orange peel and pith. Finishes tart and bready with a hint of crusty bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Dense, burnt sunshine-orange body, opaque with an off-white head that literally diffuses into nothing in seconds. Aroma smells like a Screwdriver made with Gin. Big-time orange juice aroma, gin, spruce, light pine needles, mild earthy & leafy hop notes, a touch of spicy oak, & some herbal overtones throughout. Flavor has a nicely tart orange juice punch out of the gate. Light farmhouse hay & wood character. Gin in present, but light enough to not steal the show. Mild grassy, earthy, herbal tones. Faint pine. Little bits of grapefruit flesh & grapefruit peel, too. Orange juice & dry oak finish. Absolutely awesome stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful blending of dry hopped herbal and trebly clementine fruit notes with dry must, clean acids and subtle malt construction. Kumquat, apricot, and clementine extreme; hard to find where acids end and hop oils begin; superb.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - pours golden. Nice citrus smell. The taste starts nice with some oranges and tangerines. But then the after taste is bang in your fast. The gin just hits you in the fast and not in the good way.
