3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle from Vino Wines; BBD: 090115) A light gusher. Pours a dark, murky amber with plenty of tan head. Good retention and lace. Intensely aromatic with notes of grapefruit and spruce. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium bordering on full body and a finish of sweetness that balances out the upfront impression of a rather strong hop bitterness. Flavour is very hop forward but bordering on an American amber in the sweetness and gravity department.

330ml bottle from Borough Wines, Stoke Newington. Pours a nice mahogany brown. Fresh resinous hops with some subtle touches of pineapple and mango (although that could be the mango I was eating just prior to opening this) with a smooth bitter finish. Very enjoyable and well crafted.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biggo fizzo. Toffee tropical aroma of mango, pineapple and passionfruit. Tropical juice. Taste does not live up to the fruitiness of the aroma bit still great like a bitter candy.
