This light igniting ale flickers complex fruits across your tongue leaving a dry fruity bitter finish smothering your thirst. Inferno uses a blend of five different hops from the Yakima Valley to create its floral aroma and unique flavour.

theprof (186) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Cask at the Falcon. Pours pale gold with thin top. Floral scents of citrus. Tastes of pine woods and grasses. A resinous palate with some light hints of biscuit. On a cold winters night with a fire opposite it’s almost nostalgic of summers gone. Good but it will never persuade me to switch allegiance from the darker brews. Put less diplomatically an American ale imperfectly reconstructed

Cask @William K Frederik. Clear dark chestnut color. Thick and firm white-yellow head, stays. Sweet, malty, fruity, bit of melon in aroma. Caramel, malty, fruity, sweet in taste. Soft bitterness. Hazelnuts in aftertaste. Nice full body. Lovely brew.

Backlog rating. Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean pale golden color with medium white head. Aroma is grassy and lemony, with citrus leaves and straw. Taste has some bread, grains, grass and lemon peel. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok golden

A disappointment to my taste buds. The aroma was there, but it was like it was a blend with a little of lots of different things. To be fair, this beer did improve whilst sitting, but I just felt that it was off-balance.

Tried at the Cardinals Hat, Lincoln. Pale golden colour with a thick white head. Floral and fruity aroma. Taste a touch light but refreshing.

tombyars (1507) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 9th August 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale straw in colour with a wispy white head. Dry hop flowers in the short bitter aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base delivers a light fruity note of lychees and fragrant elderflower. Again floral notes present in the short hoppy aftertaste. This continues into a light hoppy finish which is slightly dry in the mouth. A poor session Golden Ale.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Cask at the Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. An odd pale straw colour with a creamy head; tropical fruit aroma; soft and creamy in the mouth with a gentle tropical fruit taste, and surprisingly full bodied; with a lasting leafy bitterness; and some ripe mango to finish.

Hippoman (397) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours very pale and yellow with a thin white head and some haziness to the beer. Looks good. Odour of grapefruit and lemon. Taste is overly lemony, dominating the beer to the extent its hard to pick out any other characteristics. Could have been good but the lemon needs toning down.

Fruity aroma. Hoppy with grapefruit tones. Light yellow. Nice bite on the palate. Will drink again.
