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.

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.

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 (229) - Birmingham, West Midlands, 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.

Nice aroma of grapefruit, pours a hazy golden brown with a decent head. NIce carbonation, nice bitterness of the citrus, decent stuff, just lacking that little extra flavour to make it really decent.
