Despite being a heavyweight beer, this is not all hop bitterness and chewy malt... the addition of ínon-traditionalí ingredients really lift the hop aroma to the fore. Nice work.

Nice grapefruit notes in the aroma, small soapy head on orange amber body. Sharper citric hops in the taste, with some soft caramel malts. Gentle, savory brew.

Pours amber with small head. Nice hoppy citrusy aroma with caramel and toffee from the malt. Quite strong, but very well balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 440ml can on 6/3/2015. Pours an opaque dark golden with a small head. Has a pleasant fruity hop aroma. Flavour wise, you get lots of sweet citrus, stone and tropical fruit (mandarin, peach, mango, melon). What makes this a bit different is the bitterness, which is just a touch hot with hint of chili and mint, which makes it cling ardently to the back of your mouth. Has a fullish body and average carbonation. A very good and quite unusual brew.

12oz can pours an orangey brown color without much head. Very viscous. Intense tropical and citrus hops. Not enjoying the other flavors added to it so much.
