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.

Bottle. Golden yellow, slighty hazy colour with small white head, that sits down quickly and leaves some nice lacing. This beer is brewed with 5 different kinds of hops and that fact gives it the perfect nose. Aroma of hops, spices, grass and also some citruses, mostly grapefruit. Very bitter beer with dry, heavy bitter aftertaste.

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 (1494) - 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 (5282) - 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 (237) - 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.

jamesie1857 (1712) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2015
On cask at The James Watt, Greenock - hazy piss yellow body, thin white head. Nose is peach and grapefruit crush, a hoppy attack of flowery citrus. Taste is just the right side of bitter, long tasty citrus ending. Okay beeroverall.

Towey1989 (796) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2015 Cask at Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, passion fruit, a little grain and floral hops. Taste again of citrusy dry grapefruit, peach, passion fruit , grain and floral hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, floral hop bitterness in the finish. A decent, refreshing, dry golden ale, I found it a little thin though.

Drank from a bottle. The taste is a bit thin but there still some spice there. Not very interesting.
