3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a thin head. Some sediment as would be expected. Floral aroma with passion fruit. Flavours of tropical fruits and heavy hops. A substantial tartness and bitterness with a late astringency that also seems typical of Mallinson?s beers. Perhaps a little too sour at the end but otherwise good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2016 Had this again on 24th Sep 2016 and thought it very Grapefruity and Lemony throughout, a lot more depth than the first time I had it: more Hops this time around. Hand-pulled half in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 17th May 2014. I assume this is a one hop brew? Pale golden body with a head head. Simcoe Hops, like Cascade are supposed to impart citrus notes into the aroma and taste, they didnít use enough though! I found this fruity and bland. Iíve struggled with single hop brews before finding them one dimensional and uninteresting, this followed that pattern.
