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.

Pale hoppy new world hopped British pale ale A small amount of wheat Malta adds refreshing character to the beer. Personally I am a big fan of Nelson Sauvin hop and I like the fact that now we have move passed showcasing than and into using them more technically in a blend of buttering and aroma hops.

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

Cask @ ACBF 2012: clear, slightly dark orange with a white head, smell reminds me a bit of nelson sauvignon, herbal & floral hops as well, taste is bitter, herbal, floral hops but also some white grapes & melon, slight white berries, slightly fizzy, touch watery cask thingy but quite nice anyway, pint-able

Bottle at home. Vivid orangey amber with a thin, short-lived white head that leaves some light lacing. Lovely hop nose, bright tropical fruit character, hints of gooseberry, pineapple. grapefruit, orange peel. Refreshingly dry and juicy with a lovely pithy grapefruit bitterness that goes on and on. Mouthfeel is spot-on. Lovely stuff.

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.
