Scopey (8306) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours lightly hazy golden with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is piney, skunky, general citrus, sherbet, candied peel and pink lemonade. The taste is crisp, bitter, skunky, pine needles, resin, grapefruit, peppery, minerals, alcohol hit and wood with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Quite crisp and dry. Thankfully not sweet also. Solid.

beechner224 (823) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a amber color with strong white head. Aroma of piney hops, a bit resiny, almost oily. Taste is light, smooth, a bit sticky on my tough. Hop punch isnt crazy, put strong at first. It then fades into background. The alcohol is well hidden. Pretty tasty.

Pours golden light orange slightly opaque with little head. Smells super sexy like strawberry pine grapefruit little cat piss and flowers. Tastes like tropical fruits with light toffee biscuity malt and then goes into a nice bitter with citrus dank grassy flavor and some pine cone. Awesome balance a truly enjoyable hoppy beer.
