4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml Bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh (£3.25):
Fruity to begin with, a strong helping of tropical fruits hits you first followed by some lighter pine notes and a touch of grapefruit. Very hoppy overall and backed up with some nice mango and passion fruit. A very summery and refreshing smelling beer.
Bright amber with a finger sized, bubbly looking head that takes an aggressive pour to form but manages to have nice retention.
Tropical with a lot of fruity flavours up front including some mango and bitter grapefruit as well as some pine hops and the usual citrus hops. Like the taste this one comes across as very refreshing and easy to drink with a nice bitter finish.
Light medium in body but definitely not watery, there is a lot of bitterness and plenty of sweet, fruity notes with a good refreshing well and a nice citrus tang.
Definitely one of the best I have ever tried, this one had it all really. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruit notes with just the right amount of hops and bitterness. There was a great, easy going and refreshing feel to the beer and I managed to work my way down it in almost no time at all.

1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 This is the definition of an unbalanced beer, it just tastes of hop pellet tea. It?s so over-hopped for a low OG beer. The delicious, soft guava and wood-oil aroma is destroyed by an earwaxy harsh bitterness that ruins the second half of the pint. If it was 7% I?d probably be lush (like Cannonball is). For a highly-hopped, low ABV golden beer, see Ilkly Mary Jane.
