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 (9267) - 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.

Habanero (3952) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2016
Canned. Pours cloudy pale golden with a huge lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, flowery notes and a hint of pine. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and pleasant bitter. Light to medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice crisp and hoppy Ale. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
