Cask @ The Counting House JDW. Golden amber colour, good head. Citrus resin hop aroma. Fruity hop flavour. Smooth with bitter aftertaste. This is a good one.

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.

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!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2012
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.

BenH (2930) - 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
