jmgreenuk (7654) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 5, 2016
Can from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a cloudy straw colour with a thin whispy white head. The aroma is grassy hop, mineral, sweet honey. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light, big zesty hop bitter, acid citrus fruit, light peppermint spice palate. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel.

Hazy golden, small white froth. Citrusy, mostly grapefruit aroma, light hints of malt and hay. Flavour is malty with citrus hops. Light but rather tasty. Dry with lasting citrus finish.

Keg @ Booth Wood Inn, Rishworth. Hazy pale amber with a small head. Has a mildly stewed tropical fruitiness, but crisp and very palatable. Possibly a touch thin.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
This dry and bubbly hophead’s brew shares citrus fruit galore and lemongrass allusions before green bitterness impersonates a few blades of grass.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam covers the hazy blond.
-I’m not sure this beer was intended to be that carbonated. In any case, it turned out to wonderfully complement the hop aroma and flavors.
-This brew has lots of personality.
-The citrus fruit allusions are impressive and not linear From lemons to starfruit, they are all juicy and fresh.

Bottle.
