Bottle. Really inviting citrus and fruit aroma. Flavour doesn’t live up to aroma, pithy fruit with a malt sweetness. A bit yeasty, feels quite kernel-y.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Vino, Broughton street. Pours golden with haze. Small white foamy head. Big tropical nose with lemon. Fairly highly carbonated. Thinnish body which doesn't really bring along the smells to the mouth. Refreshing but not as big as nose suggests.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vino Wines. Golden body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Gorgeous tropical fruit aroma - passion fruit, papaya and mango. It falls down a bit on the taste. The tropical fruit flavours are still there but there flashes of watery mint and minerals. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. I like this brewery - they don’t muck about when it comes to hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Hazy amber with a large white head. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavours are standard for the style but reasonably well balanced. Light floral notes, grass, citrus, a little tropical fruit, light sweetness and a moderately bitter finish. Quite frothy in the mouth but not unbearably so. Pretty decent.
