4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into lager glass.
Deep golden orange with a humongous frothy head that subsided to a tight layer with tons of lacing start to finish. Aroma was malty, earthy, some yeast, citrus fruit, a slight but of pine resin. The citrus aroma reminds me of lemon lime hard candies. Get the malts immediately on he sip, then a huge blast of citrus more grapefruit than the nose suggested. Earthy underneath, nice hit of bitterness, not overwhelming. Tiny bit of breadiness or yeast, slightly toasty. Flavor hits and passes quickly, and grapefruit and maybe mango linger just a bit. Very clean and refreshing, light on the palate. Finishes dry and makes you want more. The carbonation is light and refreshing. Very drinkable and can see this on a hot summer day.

Bottle from Euston Tap. Pours a nice rich gold with medium carbonation. Lovely rich heavy hop aroma. Flavour is less hoppy, more lagery notes - which I don’t particularly care for but I’m sure this is a grand example of a hoppy lager style. Great for the aroma and no doubt a well made beer but I probably wouldn’t have another (unless it was on draught, at source, and cheaper!).

Super citrus hop aroma blast with just as bitter start on the tongue to match. Mellow yellow amber color with a thin head. Very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours a brilliant hazy orange color. Aroma is big orange, citrus, hop forward , slight maltiness in the back. Flavor is orange and hops up front, with a fair amount of maltiness, sweetness and breadiness. Mouthfeel is big carbonation. Very noticeable carbonation here. Not as good as their Hopstitution XL but it’s no slouch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured an orange golden in color with a covering of white head. Aroma has bright hops, citrus blasted, sweet resins, and lager malts. Very clean and shows off all the hop goodness. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor again has a great clean pilsner malt base, citrus, resins, a touch of sweetness, and finishes clean and crisp.
