COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular
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.

Niall73 (1783) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Cask at Tap East, Stratford. Light aroma with some b.o. and a little funky veg. Light body, mild carbonation. A little pissy, with light biscuit, a lemon, light pine with a slightly woody, dry grapefruit finish. Decent., ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Reindeer. Clear golden yellow. Slightly soapy. Floral citrus fruits, bit of grass, sharp sweetness. Not a lot of malt in there. Dry, bitter finish. Nice session, but it dries you out after a while.

Looks like a shitty beer but in fact it was flavory and not that strong. Can’t have several in a row

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Looks like a lager! Great aroma with hops, honey and nice flowery flavours. The taste is mellow but the finish is extremely bitter.

McWorta (594) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 2, 2014
Light hazy pale golden colour with a light pillowy white head. Noses of mango, grapefruit, floral, lemon and significantly of lychees and lightly soapy. Lightly sweet with lots of bitterness following. Thin texture, light body with a short and dry finish. Refreshing but the name is a bit misleading.

This beer is like taking hops straight off the vine & eating them - I love it! Piney, hop forward, light ale. Rated by BrewTom

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Golden and floral hoppy. There’s a nice lemony character. Snappy bitterness, good balancing pale malt. Tasty drop. A re-rate a few weeks later at at JDW in Glasgow confirmed this to be good stuff.
