Renobob (1621) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 9, 2015
Bue à la pression. Grosse amertume présente tout le long de la dégustation et qui s'intensifie en finale. Bel équilibre général. Finale sèche. Faut aimer le houblon !

beer-yum (1334) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2015
Alluring aroma with hints of citrus, pine, and passionfruit. A hop forward full bodied flavour follows - and makes it an excellent brew.

Cask at Crystal Palace (JDW) Glasgow. Cloudy orange/golden coloured, minimal but lasting white head, light hops in the nose. Moderate malty, citrusy hoppy and fruity with notes of spices. Light peachy hoppy notes in dry bitter finish. Nice brew.

Westchesterco (1824) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a light gold color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a pineapple grapefruit flavor. It resonates slightly bitter

From a 50 ml bottle purchased in Ocracoke NC. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of lemon and orange with floral notes. Bitter finish. This is a fine pale ale.

AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
On cask at the Beer Hall. Appearance - golden with a slight haze and a nice head. Nose - intense mango and grapefruit. Taste - loads more grapefruit with a touch of that sweet mango. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - the finish is almost too dry but still retains decent balance.

wheresthepath (2121) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Keg at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Murky gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and floral hit with a very dry finish. Loads of hops here but lacked the depth and balance of ghe Hardknot Infra-Red I’d had just before, and maybe suffered by comparison. Still decent though.

17 o bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange hue. Nice and refreshing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, passionfruit and floral notes and a nice balance/ crispness to it. Not wimpy, but the NZ hops are somehow a bit less arrogant? in-your-face? than the American equivalent. Finishes with an pleasant bitterness. Really good.
