ladnewton (1489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Islington on 14th December 2012. Gold with long lasting loose foam and lacing bands. Hoppy aroma with floral notes. Crisp grapefruit hoppiness in-mouth, evolving into a bitter finish yet still with grapefruit tang remaining. Crisp, quenching mouthfeel. Very good flavour-strength ratio.

Bottled, thanks Boudicca! Hazy golden, rich head. Citric nose with white grapes and gooseberry. Dry and very light with crisp, firm mouthfeel. Plenty of salty, citric hops, slight buttery malt, long salty bitterness. Truly refreshing, yet flavourful.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
50cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A hazy amber pour with a billowing white head; intesely floral aroma with some pine and tropical fruit; light and refreshing in the mouth, with an amazingly complex taste - pinapple, grapefruit and gooseberry, barley and bread dough; and a dry, slightly spicy, bitterness before a sweet, biscuity, finish. Rather good stuff.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
A golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong hop aroma. Loaded with orangey and floral aromas, plus a slight grassiness. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hoppy taste, citrus fruit flavours, led by a floral orange flavour are followed by grassy and piney flavours. There is a background maltiness that comes through towards the end. The floral hoppy bitterness lasts into a lingering finish.soy sauce,

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Trembling Mad. Lively slightly gushing pour, clear yellow golden, thick foamy white head. Big vinous gooseberry Nelson nose, some dusty malt, touch of grapefruit. Big juicy grapefruit, vinous bitterness. Almost no malt flavours. Long puckering bitter finish. A bit of a hop bomb! Tasty though, if a little thin.

JohnCook101 (350) - - JAN 27, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours slightly cloudy light amber with a good white head. Little aroma to speak of. Tart apple and citrus flavours, a slightly watery middle but a really robust and intensely hoppy bitter finish. Crisp and satisfying, very good flavour for its abv.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden and clear. Decent head. Nose - lemon and flower stocks. Taste - more lemon with a dry earthy note in the background. Palate - light bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yep great beer considering the strength.

500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Yorkshire part two tasting. Pours clear gold, thin short-lived white head. Light lemon and pine aromas. Taste is more citrus, resinous hops, nice malt backbone. Good body for the strength. Nice.
