Pours lightly hazy, pale golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is wonderfully soft hoppy. Peach, oranges and grass. Great, dry mouthfeel with okay creaminess. Flavour is impressively hoppy without ever going too far, pine and grass dominating. Very good with great dryness.

Pale orange, filmy head. Very flowery and grapefruity aroma - big raw whole hops, even smells like bees and beestings. Huge sweet fruity hoppy taste - steeped in raw hops. A bit over the top, but remarkably tasty in small quantities.
