Wonderful pacific pale, similar to the other well hopped hawkshead beers, with a distinctive tasting citrusy hop with lots of depth. Refreshing and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westchesterco (946) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Poured from a bottle it is a light gold color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a pineapple grapefruit flavor. It resonates slightly bitter

Iphonephan (3254) - McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2014
From a 50 ml bottle purchased in Ocracoke NC. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of lemon and orange with floral notes. Bitter finish. This is a fine pale ale.

AshtonMcCobb (2544) - 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.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Keg at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere. Murky gold with a thin white head. Big citrus and floral hit with a very dry finish. Loads of hops here but lacked the depth and balance of ghe Hardknot Infra-Red I’d had just before, and maybe suffered by comparison. Still decent though.

17 o bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange hue. Nice and refreshing. Grapefruit, pine, resin, passionfruit and floral notes and a nice balance/ crispness to it. Not wimpy, but the NZ hops are somehow a bit less arrogant? in-your-face? than the American equivalent. Finishes with an pleasant bitterness. Really good.

chinchill (1869) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2014
500ml bottle served in a small tulip. Appearance: Clear amber like a lager. Pungent herbal hoppy aroma. Moderately bitter as expected. Grapefruit and herbal flavor Precisely carbonated medium body.

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has a tempting tone of fresh hops, with hints of malt and tropical fruit. Hops really come out in the flavor, riding undertones of malt and sweet tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is smooth, reasonably firm, not very fizzy, leaving a mango and hoppy finish. A toast to the Kiwis!

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.

Crystal clear yellow. Thin white head. Dull skunky hop nose. Dull clean lager like flavore. Light bodied and a bit floral boring ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
