Amber, clear, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma - soft citrus hops, tropical fruits, touch of pineapple, soft fruity malts

Palate - medium body, fairly oily. Finish as main flavour, smooth, moderately bitter zest tail
Overall - Came across to me as a rather malty IPA

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Cask Pub & Kitchen London 17/12/12. A copper coloured beer with a bright white head and moustachioed lace. A very hoppy, very bitter finish. Some sweeteneing malt especially in then nose. Verging on astringent bitterness but it has bags of flavour and character.

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear copper with a fine, white cream head. Light toasty malt nose, some semi-ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with toasty sugars, light pine, some juicy citrus, light grass. Light bodied with fine carbonation. LIght sticky finish, some resinous hops, more juicy orange. Pleasant sessioner.

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Cask @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s medium golden amber with a tiny white head. The nose is light piss, white grape, mild citrus. The taste is more mild lemon rind citrus, biscuit, general pale malt and lemon drizzle cake. Light, soft. Decent, though it doesn’t stand out for me.

mr_h (2816) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear copper ale, bubbly off-white head, citrus hop aroma, strong grapefruit flavour, hint of pineapple, aggressively hopped with a strong citrus aftertaste

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is farmyard, hopsack, hay and light floral notes. The taste is very floral, perfume, biscuit, earth, grass, slight astringency, melon and pear with a very dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not one of fyne’s best...

Cask @ Inn Deep. Amber brown colour, reasonable head. Biscuit vanilla hop aroma. Malt and hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. omewhere between a golden ale & IPA. Decent but Fyne Ales do better.
