4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Bierhaus. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is lashing of tropical fruit, citrus, berries and a hint of vanilla. Hugely fruit nose. Taste is a subtle sweetness very nicely blended with a fruity hop bitterness and a nice tropical fruit finish. Nice and even carbonation and good body. Bowled over by the quality of this one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at bull and castle.
Hazy mid amber, lacing offwhite head. Mango and passion fruit aroma. Initial sweaty feet then copious mango and Papua ending up fairly sweet but finishing with plenty of drying mango pith. Gentler carbonation than cyclone. Certainly more hop driven.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Keg at Farringtons. Amber pour. Big juicy tangerine, peach, passionfruit and mango nose - proper Rubicon tropical juice thing going on. Juicy tropical notes make themselves heard in the taste: lots of nice mango and passionfruit. Some pithier citrus, a touch of caramel and bready malt. Nice zingy bitterness. Long juicy tropical finish. Delicious - best Irish IPA ever made.
