2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge aroma sweet fruits, pine, tropical fruits. Really nice!
Golden, hazy with a two finger head.
Taste is bitter, really bitter. Some herb, gets me thinking of Fernet Branca which isn’t something I enjoy. Especially not in a IIPA...
Quite thin body.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Small bottle. Very hazy gold, big white head. Nose is alright, very piney, citrus... flavour is extraordinarily bitter, tastes like trub. Bile. Could be because the malt base has been replaced so there’s nothing balancing it... or the trub never settled so they filtered the flecks out through a mesh. Cool of them to experiment with ingredients many craft brewers are afraid to touch, but completely unpalatable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at SB. Pours a murky pale gold with a dense and creamy white head. Big bright sweet tropical tangy nose. Insanely dry, puckery acetic undertones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Ridiculously dry mid palate, just sandy, with a big blast of oily tropical pineapple tang over the top of that. Long puckery dry finish. Would like to try this again fresh.

Poured from 12pz bottle. Yellow cloudy pour. Says IPA and ratebeer says special grain? Lemon scent. Fruity bitter taste with mild hops. Not bad

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Christian Firtal. Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Perfumed sweet fruity and floral aroma with spice and a bit of yeast. Sweet and bitter, and quite strange flavour with some spice, pine and licorice. Very harsh and sharp bitterness

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Craft Brighton, Friday 7th March 2014 Pours a egg yolky yellow sort of colour but a slightly washed out probably caged hen egg yolk, its hazy with a white head. Its pricey was my thirst though £5.50p a half, so it better be wirth it and indeed it was bloody good. Furiously hoppy with lots of lemon rind, pith and zippy, zappy citrussy hops flying about. Quite tangy with a lengthy bitter finish, perhaps lacks a bit of body i.e. malty backbone (its very hoppy) but we both enjoyed this. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov15 3.7

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle. Have to admit I struggled a while to interpret the name on the back of this bottle, but after a while it came to me. It pours a good looking cloudy almost honey colored body, on top of that a big lasting white colored head with great retention. The nose has a nice citrus theme supplied with the oils from orange zest, a strong and powerful malt sweetness behind all those American hops. I get tones of both yeast and honey. Strong and really dry grassy bitter in the taste. Somehow it manages not to be to dry or mouthdrying, but it is some serious grassy bitterness in this one. The carbonation level is just below average and it feels oily in the mouth. Sharp stingy, lots of pungent bitterness. Those zesty oils are also present in the taste. It’s perhaps a bit unbalanced, but it has lots of flavor. 10.10.2013

Aroma of citrus, beautiful glowing golden hazy beer. Very clean tasting, good bitterness, slightly astringent. Good amount of hop in aroma and taste. Medium bodied, huge white head. Good beer.
