Bottle. Piney slightly catty aromas. Pours very bright yellow gold. Piney catty hops with hints of tropical fruits. Finishes light & dry. I like it and would like to try it cask conditioned.

Crystal clear yellow. Thin white head. Dull skunky hop nose. Dull clean lager like flavore. Light bodied and a bit floral boring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice mouth full of pineapples, papaya & grapefruit finishing with a bucket full of fuck off hops. This beer is a sweet & sour joy to behold. Rated by BrewTom

leebotton (239) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Sweet syrupy, honey aroma from the hops with a hint of tropical. Ice cream / toffee tones. Clear golden with ever so slightly off-white head. Some unexpected and different flavours coming through, a citrussy, slightly sour, kiwi flavour (incidentally) with a sort of bitter soft finish. A good brew, easy drinking without too much inensity but enough character.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Light golden with little head to it. Expected more of a hopped tropical fruit explosion than the crisp but mild pale ale that it is. Aroma is stronger and promises more than the small grapefruit led citric taste provides.

3fourths (8229) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Not in good shape. Honey and cantaloupe and stale paper-y oxidized pale malt. Sour fruit rind, burnt pineapple, old peanuts, a kind of green mildew flavor and aroma. Medium body, lightly sweet with dull hop character and little carbonation to give life to what is there. From bottle.

jtclockwork (8915) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours cloudy yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of grapefruit peel, white sugar, pine, earth and grassy hops. Medium body.
