Bottle at home courtesy of the beer nut, cheers john
dark hazy ruby with fluffy amber head which collapses to a lacing. Rich peaches and mango on the nose. Medium carbonation and body, fruity gooseberry, fairly bitter but balanced by digestive biscuit malt and red berry flavours from hops. Well made amber giving 5am saint a run for its money.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Farringtons. Appearance: murky brown, small off white head. Aroma: Deliciously tangy hoppy nose, pineapple and mango, marijuana and pine, smells amazing. Flavour: Bitter, lovely pine and citrus flavour with a good malty backbone, fantastically hoppy, long pine and malt bitter finish. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Draught @ ICBCF. Appearance is amber, slightly cloudy, eggshell head which doesnt last. Really nice nose - toast, fruit, caramel and toffee. Flavour is sweet up front followed quickly by massive grapefuit bitterness. Light body, low carbonation. Finish is more bitterness - the hops never stop. Another exciting beer from 8 Degrees!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at ICBCF. Deep reddish copper. Lots of deep citrus and dank tropical stuff in the aroma - plenty of fairly nutty, woody caramel malt too. Big grapefruit hit first up in the taste, followed by more perfumey tropical notes. Thick caramel and nutty malt. Pine resin to finish, lingering grapefruit. Bit of a powerhouse this one - very good.
