2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
1 pint, 6oz bottle purchased in Chicago. Pours a yellow apricot with a small head that lasts. Nice lacing. Lots of grapefruit and pine aroma. I find it quite bitter on the palate, the finish is long and continues. An interesting pick, not one I'd have again. 10% alcohol is a lot for a beer-so rated this at the beginning of the bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Clear amber pour with a minimal white head. Plenty of cheesy resinous hop in the beak in tandem with notes of mandarin and tropical fruit. Sweetish flavour of caramel mals, citrus, booze and fairly robust resinous hoppage. Quite lively carbonation and fullish mouthfeel. Steadily building bitterness that lingered well into the finish. All considered a good beer.

Bottle @The Vintage, Leith, with a big thank you to Sean. Pours a hazy golden/orange, with an off-white head which while thin is rock solid and lasts all the way to the bottom of the glass. Tangerine and peach to the fore with an orange marmalade thing going on.Almost floral on the finish a touch of pine as well and a malty hint right at the end, very nice, very drinkable. EDIT - should have said batch 229/231
