On draught - excellent refreshing premium ale. Abundance of grapefruit aroma, clean citrus and hop flavours without that ’heavy’ alcoholic sweetness that some beers of this strength have. Very nice indeed.

From bottle. Good looking dobber with an impressive head. This dobber smells fruity, grapefruit and passion fruit. Dobber tastes very nice, more tropical fruit with a decent caramel malt presence, slight yeasty finish. Creamy texture with a bitter finish. Dobber is tasty

Bottle. Deep golden color with a fizzy white head. The nose is biscuity and buttery, some sweet grains. The taste is moderately sweet and floral, some straw and strange savory flavors. The palate’s medium, the finish a bit dry and acidic. Overall, a bit strange - perhaps my bottle wasn’t fresh... needs a re-rate.

Hoppy, full bodied a very pleasant hoppy aroma as well. Quite a bitter aftertaste which i didn’t like. Overall very enjoyable aside from the after taste.

Bottle. Wow this is a good one, and not one that I was expecting to be so good. Hoppy aroma upon opening with a massive hoppy flavour.Mouthfeeel is hoppy and the flavour complex yet easy to drink. It could easily pass for a West Coast IPA. How did they squeeze so much flavour out of a relatively low strength beer. Amazing.

Mmmm grapefruit. Hoppy, but overly sweet to my taste. A thin IPA with a near session level alcohol. One of the few at BBF, 2011.

Bottle from Drink of Fulham. It pours hazy straw yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, yeast, hay and grass. The taste is hay, straw, yeast, citrus pith, grapefruit, leaf and a touch of alcohol warmth with a long dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Decent.
