Tasting at Bruce’ s pad. Very hazy gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Smooth airy palate. Softish. Really nice floral lime with a little pine and mild marmalade. Touch of lemon. Underneath is nice soft creamy malt. Comes together well. Smooth finish with a decent bitter linger.

Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, mango, passion fruit, marmalade and sherbet. The taste is doughy, crisp, spice, orange peel, grapefruit, mandarin, lime pith, peppery, light alcohol and decent bitterness with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty decent.

Theydon_Bois (9149) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle shared at my 5K tasting at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Kenny for this one, 13/11/13. #197 whatever that refers to on the bottle !?! Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter orange, grapefruit, straw, orange sherbet. Taste comprises orange pith, hint mango, grapefruit, toasted malts, bread dough, light booze. Medium bodied, fine carbonatio, dry grassy hop bitterness in the closure. Ok DIPA - not a particularly aggressive number making for an easy drinking affair.

Bottle cheers to Ken. Clear golden yellow pour with a small white head. Nose is absolutely huge lime - mohito like lime and mint. Light spices and quite herbal with a hint of tropical fruits - passionfruit, mandarin and tangerine. Taste is big lime zest and spices, lemon peel, orange, mandarin juiciness. Kind of like a sweet, very fruit driven cocktail rather than a beer but it works together quite well

Leighton (11355) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to Kenwise. Pours mostly clear gold with a foamy white head. Nose holds lemongrass, lime, pine needles. Mediums sweet flavor with further lime, bitter citrus rind, touches of alcohol. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with bitter lime rind, general citrus, grass. OK.

Batch 155, lots of lime and stale hops. This was an old bottle and almost undrinkable at this point. Not sure how much better this is fresh, but not good at this point.

mcberko (6708) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of citrus hops, limey zest, and herbal notes. Flavour is extremely limey, with loads of citrusy lime hops - not a whole lot else. The like is very front and centre, without much else that’s discernible. Okay at first, but it gets too limey after a while. Drinkable, but not very enjoyable.

burg326 (3768) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
22 ounce bottle, poured a yellow cloudy color with aromas of lime, zest, light tropical fruit and a touch of grass. Flavors were the same, light spice in the taste, but a nice lime zest in the flavor, solid beer overall.

Thanks St.Fun! Cloudy bright lemon rind yellow with one finger of white head. Absolutely wonderful nose, tons of tropical fruit and citrus with a touch of lime zest. Overripe citrus and lemon juice with a bunch of lime rind. Very dry palate and moderate bitterness. Too much citrus rind shows on the palate.

Strykzone (5009) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Hazed golden. A really nice aroma of lime, citris, and rich malts. Some funk with fruit and soft malts. Lime is tasted but is not big. Nice.
