3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden color with a thin white head. Big, bright citrus and pine hop nose. This is definitely a hop head beer. The flavors include orange juice, ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, apricot jam, and some pine. Not the most balanced beer, but it is very tasty for those who want a lot of hops in beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In bottle, thanks Matt. Pours a lovely golden colour with a thick and rocky beige head. Great kiwi hop aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with similar resinous flavours. Well balanced alcohol with moderate carbonation. Just a little CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice with lingering pine and passion fruit flavours.

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
