330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours clear golden amber, long-lasting white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon end of citrus, light pine.

Nez très aromatique. En bouche des saveurs fruitées qui restent. Belle robe et belle tenue de la mousse.

Keg at Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clouded amber with slight white head. There is an intense dryness to this, bittering, grapefruit, quite challenging on the palate. Sharp zesty hoppiness on the close. Heavy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
oops, how strange. Bottle best before February 2016, stored in fridge for about 10 months; yet some cheesy yeast in the nose, under a beautiful grapefruity and herbal bunch of aromas. Overall taste of pink grapefruit, but then a soapy component sneaks in, soap and bitterness, and more bitterness towards the end, even more bitterness in aftertaste, in fact, a quite brutal bitterness, chemically treated grapefruit peel. Can’t believe this was meant like that...
