elbernays (407) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 750ml bottle from mchughs. Pours amber with white head which disappears. Aroma is peach, tropical fruits, orange, resinous hops. Syrupy sweet fruit flavours, with caramel malts hinting behind it. Mouthfeel is slick and ends in a short grapefruit bitterness. Body is full and has a lot of flavour. Carbonation is low. This is very nice balanced beer.

Cask?Draft? @ Borefts. Aroma is big fruity and floral hops, some biscuit malt. Very clean. Flavour is medium bitter, quite smooth balance between malt sweetness and the hops bitterness. Again great floral and fruity hop notes.

Amber pint with an aroma of citrus with just a hint of biscuit. Flavour is predominantly citrus/grapefruit but there’s a maltiness to it as well.

allmyvinyl (2892) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2014
750ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours hazy golden orange, thick, creamy head. Aromas of tropical fruit, kiwi, lime. Taste brings some malt sweetness, caramel specifically. Some grapefruit pith bitterness too. Creamy texture, medium body, nice bitter finish. Great stuff.

JonMoore (1846) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle - dark golden colour with large white head prone to lacing. Nice hoppy, zesty, fruity, pine, caramel aroma. Taste doesn’t disappoint, similar elements plus honey, grapefruit. It has a restrained, refined bitterness. Very well put together, very well balanced, lovely texture, nice smooth medium mouthfeel which is maintained into the lightly bitter finish. Excellent.
