3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Urgently brutally bitter to smell. Tastes that was too. A bit watery in the body though & relatlively flat but it still has real charisma. Long bitter orange matmalade finish, chewy & blunt.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted in 2 pubs in Edinburgh (Salisbury Arms and Reverie) and in the bottle.
All were well conditioned, clear amber colour and a white head.
A strong bitter flavour with mango and citrus notes and a bubblegum after taste. Mango notes become more intense and less bitter the more that is consumed. The bottle was slightly less bitter with same flavour profile
One for hopheads only.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Bubblegum, pineapple and Fruit Salad sweets.
Appearance: Hazy copper body with a medium off-white head. Very light carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Very sharp bitterness - you can taste each one of those 85 IBUs. Caramel malt, lemon, grapefruit and pineapple.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily texture. Disappointingly flat carbonation.
Overall: As with Innocente’s Bystander, this is a hop bomb. Although it’s a bit thin and flat, it’s packed full of fruity hop flavours. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark coppper amber almost brown with very little off white head. Aroma is quite resinous, pine, citrus, mango, melon, almost bubblegummy. Taste of pine, resin, caramel, toffee. Low carbo, slightly sweet and very bitter. This is very good, the hops are great but I’d personally prefer something slightly less malty and with slightly more carbo
