Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average to large white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex and earthy yeast aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Tap at Wvrst. Golden-amber pour with a thick white head. The aroma is quite citrusy - orange/lemon and a bit of soft hoppy spice. Clean malt profile and an assertive bitterness. Clean and tasty.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Slender honeyed malts are basking in tropical fruit before resinous hops seal this smooth, velvety Fruited IPA creation.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the shiny blond haze. Sun shining through morning mist.
-The kumquats and hops are perfectly harmonious.
-Drinkability is quite high.
-Resinous bitterness is moderate but just.

On tap at the brewpub.

Scopey (6870) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Keg at BD CJ. It pours cloudy orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, juicy, fresh, orange, kumquat, sherbet, waxy peel and marmalade. The taste is bitter, orange peel, kumquat, straw, very waxy, light alcohol, mild astringency and straw with a very dry, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty dry and waxy. Not bad.
