Bottle. Brilliant brilliant brilliant aroma. Sweet lemon and cantaloupe on the nose. Huge flavours, yet completely balanced. Clean. I love this.

tommann (2699) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours deep gold with a medium head. Aroma is mango and peach hops. Taste is very bitter, piney hop on the finish. Mango on the aftertaste.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Clear, pale goldd with a bubbly white head. Quite an enthralling nose. Interesting hops featuring penny bubble gum and custard. The body is a little watery with little to no malt flavour. The hops are powerful and I was left with a fairly strong bitter finish. Quite nice. The hops were unusual enough to make it interesting.

BenH (2245) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden with white head. Thick aroma, pineapple, gooseberry, mango, grapefruit, bubblegum, banana, slight clash of notes. Taste has quite resinous hops, gooseberry. Slightly oily with a clean slightly bitter finish. Some very nice elements but a bit odd for me

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Got a bitterness that’s not overpowering. Bready notes, very little head that sticks. It’s a good brew, but a little disappointing.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2012
Bottle at home. Vivid orangey amber with a thin, short-lived white head that leaves some light lacing. Lovely hop nose, bright tropical fruit character, hints of gooseberry, pineapple. grapefruit, orange peel. Refreshingly dry and juicy with a lovely pithy grapefruit bitterness that goes on and on. Mouthfeel is spot-on. Lovely stuff.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Big aroma of citrus & hops, pours a wonderful clear golden brown. Taste is very hoppy, with fruits and some vanilla which gives a slightly different taste to other pale ales. Very nicely balanced palate going into a nice bitterness. Another very nice ale from Hawkshead. Recommended.

Orange golden colour, little white head. Aroma with pronounced NZ hops, fruity Sauvignon blanc wine, grapefruit, lychee, floral hop tones. Light sweet malty flavour, fruity bitter hops. Very pronounced hops. Light to medium body. Long hoppy finish, quite floral. Nice!
