Bottle during RBWG. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of earthy grapefruit and pine with a grain backbone. Flavor has bitter grapefruit with light pine as well as a touch of light grain.

minutemat (2764) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Aroma is pine pot pourri crossed with a fresh flowery summer meadow.. lots of citrus & pine with a resinous aftertaste.. not too full on mind, but a very fresh juicy beer nonetheless.

Cask at Earl of Essex, Islington. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity with funky earthy veg. Medium body mild carbonation. It's fusty, grassy, a bit of melon, grapefruit, ash. Nice bitter finish. Slightly unusual, but tasty enough. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lonick (792) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours gold/amber and clear, light but steady carbo, looks like a lager, very little head. On the nose orange, perfume, its almost like a wine. apricot fruits come through, big citrus in general on the nose, also a little grapefruit. Big grapefruit bitterness on the palate, a little one note on the tongue, bitter all the way, could do with something to break it up.

Cask Half Pint at Craft Beer Co, Clapham, London in Dec 2013 - Yellowy Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Very Fruity; bitter grapefruit citrus, peaches, tropical fruits. Malty; biscuity malts. Lovely bitter hoppy fruity throughout. Finishes dry. Enjoyed this a lot. Terrific APA!

gegwilson (2246) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Keg from the Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Pale ale with not much in the way of a head. Fresh taste with a very bitter finish. Some tropical fruits coming through, but not as much as I’ve tasted in similar beers. Good, but not great.

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bright golden. Fluffed dissipating head. Sweet full cone nose, honest and earthy. Hop water looseness with gripping bitterness. Oily mouthfeel and crisp tacked towards finish. Simple hop sweetness. Not enough Nelson.

Bottle, Cornelius

Rune (9501) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
From the keg menu at the Hanging Bat, one third pint. Orange-gold coloured body, near-clear. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Inviting citrus hoppy nose. Blended flavours of pineapple and grapefruit offset by lightly sweet pale malts. Super fresh fruit bitter aftertaste. Smooth in the mouth. Medium bodied. A pleasure to drink this one (Edinburgh 11.08.2013).

Bottle from Cornelius. Clear golden pour, decent pale head w/creamy lacing. Bready with some cheese. Sharp then sweet in the mouth with a dry finish. Taste is pine, biscuit, touch of citrus. Nice finish.
