500ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Caramel, orange peel and hints of pine in the aroma. Toffee, grapefruit, peach and marmalade can be detected in the hoppy taste. A good beer and I look forward to tasting more beers with this hop in and see how they compare to this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Nice honey looks and a big white head. The aroma is of herbs, some yeast, but not flowery and I was expecting it to be stronger. The taste is good, but although the exploding sensations are right at the tip (of the tongue?) they never quite deliver. Great as usual overall though.
