3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle. Bright yellow pour, hazy. White head on top. Nose has some peach citrus and tropical fruit notes. Taste has big tropical hops, grasses, citrus. Hoppy aftertaste, notes of grass and tropical fruit and citrus, lengthy bitterness Bit of an alcohol burn showing up late. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall this ends up being a bit hop heavy for me, just too much unbalanced bitterness. Such a beautiful label on this bottle... i might keep it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, drunk from tulip. Pours cloudy with thick head. Strong hoppy and sweet aroma. Incredibly bitter on the tongue, not for anyone who likes malts since it is made from rice. Hints of aniseed.

Keg @ Port Street Beer House, Manchester. A massive tongue-numbing bitterness bomb of epic proportions. Couldn’t get past the first 2 sips I’m afraid.

Bottle @CBC Clerkenwell, pours hazy golden yellow. On the nose some slight farts and a hint of hoppy bitterness. Grapefruit finish with something else, lychee or cranberry for the touch of sourness you get right at the end. Ok

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
9 oz pour at PPD. Very hazy, basically opaque honey gold with some spitty white head. Aroma is just plain citrus pith. Not zesty, not citrus peel... straight pith. A hint of grass and straw, perhaps a bit grainy, but gummy grains like a risotto. Flavor follow suit, big bitter lemon peel, something a bit industrial like rubber, a little malty, lots of yeast, like blooming bread yeast, heavy hand soap. Full, bitter, soapy finish. Really harsh.
