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.

Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Murky, dark gold. Film of white head. Not a looker. Doesn’t drink that great, either. It’s like a beer that’s been stored too warm. I’d have to say that one or two of the beers I last got from Booths, have been like this. I don’t think this is how it left the brewery...

minutemat (3853) - 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.

On tap at What’s Brewing 2015, day 1. Hazy orange body, medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, forest fruits. Taste is bitter, tropical fruits, clean and dry. Good body without being sweet. Refreshing hoppy finish, same tropical theme lasting.

BenH (3438) - 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

jamestulloch (3203) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Aroma: Mango and kiwi notes. Sweet caramel.

Appearance: Completely clear light golden body with a thin, pure white head. Light carbonation.

Taste: Very hoppy with a tropical fruit flavour. Pine resin in there too. Dry, bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.

Overall: One for hop heads. Lovely sticky resin and fruit flavours. Arguably Hawkshead’s finest beer.

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.
