500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Pale golden yellow colour, not much head, some sediment. Biscuit resin & citrus fruit aroma. Biscuit grapefruit & mango flavour. Dry citrus aftertaste. Possibly the best of Mallinsons single hop series.

jamestulloch (1516) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Aroma: Light grapefruit and mango aroma. Very subtle soapy notes.

Appearance: Hazy, pale golden body with light yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head that slowly fades. Lively carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Big grapefruit and lemon flavours - this is really juicy and refreshing. Biscuity malt in the background. Lingering bitter finish.

Palate: Thin to medium body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation.

Overall: A fruity, delicious beer - I could happily drink several of these. For me, Citra is the best hop to use for single-hop beers.

danlo (1299) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
500ml bottle from the Crafty Pint, Darlington Market. Light yellow golden colour, fizzy thin white head, deep hop aroma including grapefruit and mango notes. Taste is hop bitterness, spicy citrus, malt and some fruity passionfruit in the finish. Light bodied, hoppy pale ale. Quite drinkable.

JohnCook101 (338) - - NOV 10, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a smooth, moderately sized head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Very dry with bitter grapefruit and intense citrus hops with a late and very long bitter finish. Fairly high carbonation, perhaps a little too much. Bold and refreshing, very nice.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2012
From the bottle. Pours very pale golden with a white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma is of grapefruit and tropical fruit from the citra hops. The flavour is fresh and zingy with grapefruit to the fore. The finish is long and dry. This is ideal summer beer.

Pudding (183) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
500ml bottle from Cotteridge Wine. I agree with last reviewers comments. A pale beer with good flavour and an oily mouthfeel.

Big aroma of peach and mostly mango. Tastes of only mild citrussy hops, and lots of swimmingpool. Some pleasant bitter hop finish. Spoilt by the swimming pool.
