3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber, almost nonexistent head. Little aroma to speak of, mildly zesty I suppose. Flavour is as you’d expect for a well-hopped American style pale ale, lots of citrus, some tropical fruit, pine, etc. Not complex or innovative but still right up my street.

Clean, crisp, tropical and great balance. Great balance. Can drink an awful lot of this. A fantastic hop bomb. Really great. Cask, Manchester ale festival. I would like to see this on keg

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
10th June 2014: hand-pulled pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates. Very pale gold body with a full white head. Floral hop nose with a mildly citrus note. The taste was hop bitter with a dry finish and aftertaste. Not really my thing but it was refreshing and clean tasting, if lacking in a maltier balance sort of way.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, straw colour. Thick, fluffy, lasting, white head. Good looking beer. Lemon. Lime. Digestive biscuit. Light, herbal, floral honey thing going on. Taste is more of the floral thing. Like eating a rose petal. Bit tinny, really. Palate is clean and lively, though. Finish is dry, and light bitter. Found this a bit odd.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grapefruit and spritzy lemon with base biscuit. Tinned pineapple juice with yeasty and floral notes. Flavours are lightly bitter grapefruit with lemony yeast. Some pine with jammy fruit. A decent hoppy brew.

7th December 2013
Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Smooth and semi sweet airy malt. Nice lemon - lime hops with a touch of pine. Unfortunately skewed by the old Mallinsons soap. Light finish with more sweet pine. Could have been very good indeed without the soap.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’13. Gold with white head. This was quite a lively beer, still in great condition on the third day of the festival. Good, hoppy grapefruit notes along with lemon peel and bitterness. Lengthy on the palate. Very good.
