AshtonMcCobb (2466) - 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.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
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.

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

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh
Golden, clear, frothy white head that dissipates, bit of lacing
Aroma - Pale malts, some hay, some soft grassy hops, bit of must
Taste - Better than the aroma - grassy hops, some resinous hops, sweet palate malts, bit of damp hay, some zest. In the middle, more bitterness but tempered by the sweetish hay malts. Unusual hops here, bit earthy as well. Quite complex. Not that fruity, more zest, grassy and wet hay.
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish - more bitter here, now bitter grapefruit coming through and more zest, less grass. Quite a complex linger of hops left in the lingering
Overall - Hard to describe this one as it’s rather unusual. I liked it though, the bitterness seems to want to be overpowering but is always held back by the malts. It’s a very good beer

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2012
Cask, Dispensary, Liverpool. Clear amber looks with a nice creamy lingering white head. Great juicy fruit n’ hop in the nose and flavour. Maybe some notes of kiwi, or did i imagine that ? Great condition, sparkling stuff. Big lingering hop bitter finish. Hugely drinkable.
