4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful pacific pale, similar to the other well hopped hawkshead beers, with a distinctive tasting citrusy hop with lots of depth. Refreshing and dry.

10.4.2014. Mild, lemonish aroma. Sth similar in aroma and taste, some fruit, but its stuffy. Also citrus, bitter. Too simple.

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...

I like the passion fruit thing going on, the aroma is nice, but i thought this was ’hard’ drinking, not for any not pleasant things, but that I thought each mouth was like a hammer blow, and I wanted something more measured and longer in drinking, this is one of those short drinks, it all happens up front, then a gap, and then you are left with a lingering thing that makes you frown a bit, as if like you didn’t enjoy it, making you a bit gun-shy.

Drinking this a couple of weeks before its best-by-date on the opposite side of the world, so it’s not anywhere near fresh. The punchy hop aroma that others mention has been replaced by the smell of concrete after a rain, the ’crystal clear’ is now hazy straw, yet the taste and palate are damn good. My god, I imagine this would be in the mid-to-high FOURS fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bue à la pression. Grosse amertume présente tout le long de la dégustation et qui s'intensifie en finale. Bel équilibre général. Finale sèche. Faut aimer le houblon !

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alluring aroma with hints of citrus, pine, and passionfruit. A hop forward full bodied flavour follows - and makes it an excellent brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Crystal Palace (JDW) Glasgow. Cloudy orange/golden coloured, minimal but lasting white head, light hops in the nose. Moderate malty, citrusy hoppy and fruity with notes of spices. Light peachy hoppy notes in dry bitter finish. Nice brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
cask ,pours light yellow with white head and good lacing
Aroma is very fruity with very hoppy notes
Taste is bitter sweet with citrus flavours and a long biiter dry finish
just a great beer
Time that rate beer separated draught cask ales ,from the same beer in a bottle as cask is usually much better,as is shown by the bottle rating for this beer
