Bottle at home from drinkstore
Hazy pale amber with beige lacing. Subdued spicey peach nose. Moderate carbonation, sweet, rye and hops cancel each other out leaving a suggestion of each but just ends up nondescript.

Reddish brown pour with a small white head, some lacing. Malty with some hop aroma, citrus, rye. It’s a refreshing, malty, zesty beer and rather enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Black Sheep, Dublin.
Hazy amber orange with sandstone film.
Tangerine and rye spice on the nose.
Doughy with Berroca orange, some grassy spice, and jagged resin at the end.
Rosin finish and a sweet flash in the linger.
Medium, chewy, round.
Hops are bright and citrussy and rye doesn’t overwhelm. Rye APA more than Rye IPA. Glad to see what appears to be a permanent tap head for this. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint from polypin at B&C, Dublin. Deep hazy amber orange with thin bubbly crown of white-ish froth. Aroma gives a lot of sweet tropical fruit: plenty of passionfruit and papaya. Some sherbet sweetness in there too as well as a slightly spicy and bready yeastiness. Taste also showcases juicy tropical fruits, semi-sweet bready malt, slight spice, and a definite hint of sugary refresher sweets. Medium/thin mouthfeel. Light and easy drinking - a great summer ale that I was very lucky to get hold of.
