Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall, London. Smooth pine hop aroma. Amber brown colour with a good foamy head. Spicy hop flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Good one.

Fresh 2011 vintage. Pours light, clear amber with 2 fingers of head, great retention. Aroma is cheesy, grassy hops with a hint of tangerine and orange peel, barely a hint of toast. Taste is big roasty caramel with a grapefruity, grassy finish. Body is light to medium, oily, approachable bitterness, low carbonation, dry finish. Overall, having just brewed a batch of beer prior to consuming this, I can verify that this beer perfectly exhibits the aroma characteristics of un-boiled hops. Incredibly fresh and delicious.

Aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Pours orange with a small head. Tastes of strong grapefruit and orange peel hops. Mouthfeel is sweet and sticky with a great aftertaste of hops. Love it.

Couldn’t tell you how old it was, but here it is almost 01/12 and it was at the store. I couldn’t believe I haven’t rated it yet. Wonderful nose, lots of fresh hop character, it didn’t seem old at all. Very piney, citrus, just amazing nose. Mouthfeel was rather light, and average carbonation. Flavor hit all of the right notes. Finish was very bitter. Leaves the New Belgium Fresh Hop in the dust. Overall, excellent brew. Enjoyability 4/5.

Pours clear copper with minimal head. Aroma slams with grassy, piney hops. Taste follows, with this one highlighting the hops foe sure. Excellent IPA with the right mouthfeel. Malty sweetness really comes out as it warms up. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really enjoyed this beer. I felt it was more on the ipa side. Aroma was quite grassy with some piney and floral notes. Appearance was lighter than i expected but poured a nice light copper color with a decently thick head that left some lacing throughout. Taste was medium bodied and a little sticky mouthfeel. with some decent hop bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness but not much. Carbonation added a refreshing quality i liked and it had a nice long finish. Would recommend eating with thai food or spicy sausage. Very good beer overall. would buy again!

The taste of mother nature at its finest. FRESH HOPS! Almost like drinking grass. Smooth with earthy freshness dangling to the end. Light in flavor and aroma.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 2006 version much better than 2005. Huge, grassy, resiny hop aroma and flavor. An excellent beer.

Great pale ale! Caramel gold in color with a big, thick, rocky head. Tangerine-like amarillo hop aroma. Light and refreshing flavor, somewhat creamy. Nicely hopped with citric tangerines throughout. Pleasant bitterness at the finish. A winner. Thanks for hooking me André!

This was a really good hoppy beer and was not overpowering, but instead, well balanced. It was more like and IPA than a pale, so if you are a hophead, try this. It’s great.
