jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle from Merchants 1688, Lancaster. Dark gold/copper, decent carbonation. A bit of white head. Pune/resinous aroma. Pure unadulterated hop. Taste is more muted: surprisingly sweet, hinting at maple syrup. A bit of bitterness in the unexpectedly dry finish. Perfect amount of carbonation. A joy to drink, and a reminder why we rate beer.

Sjohnh (329) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Thatís good. Rusty amber colour, tiny white head. Big tropical fruit and orange aroma. Fairly light body, slightly oily, would prefer it a bit thicker and creamier to be a great. Lovely taste though, fruit salad, led by orange and peach, with a touch of caramel before a strong bitter finish. Well carbonated.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small lingering white head. Promising piney hop and citrus in the nose. The sweetish flavour unfolded along similar lines with good tropical fruits mingling with a solid malt spine. Very drinkable and tasty stuff. Letís raise a glass to Ravi.
