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

Draft at Thirsty Monk. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have cheese, BO, herbal, bitterness, dry, bad. No more words for this.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Hazy orange color. Small size, white head, stays. Dusty, grainy, hops, sweat, oranges in aroma. Spruce, tar, citrus, juniper in taste. Very intensive and attacking flavor. Bitter bitter aftertaste makes it a bit struggle to drink (at least for me).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24-JAN-2014, draft @Mikkeller & Friends.
Hazy golden with lasting of--White, lacing head.
Aroma is grape fruit, mango, orange, peach - the fruitbowl.
Taste is extremely bitter, The bitterness is taking over most of the hoppy stuff. Yeast, fruit - mostly citrus, grape fruit. Very yeasty, too much. A little tart, some sweetness. Many nice elements here but too rough and too yeasty.

330ml bottle (BierKompass.de)
Lovely fruity hop aroma. Massively earthy taste. Bitter and herbal. Nut paper late finish. Not too sweet, not too bitter, and not too alcoholic. A nice balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CBC Clapham. Pours hazy orange honey sort of colour with lacy white head. Nose is resinous toffee, big lychee and grapefruit. Real sour tang to this. Massive grapefruit, pineapple and lychee. A tropical bomb. A little too sweet and sticky but a solid drop. Surprised at how low this rates
