Bottle. Pours golden, with a small creamy head. Aroma is bitter, followed by nice tropical hops with mango, apricots pineapples and lychee. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter hops with grapefruit, resin, orange peel and peaches, as well as light roasted malts with toffee and floral notes. Sweetly hoppy finish, with a nice lingering bitterness.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
500ml bottle, many thanks to Gunnar! Pours a deep burnt orange with off white head. Orange boiled sweet aroma. Perhaps a little too slick and overly hopped for me. Lots of orange but it becomes a bit overpowering, sticky & boozy to be enjoyable. Disappointing.
