complimentary 330ml can from the brewers who I by chance met in the Barley Mow Bristol. Very refreshing grafefruit hops with a bitter aftertaste. Dark amber in colour. Would quite like to try one of these cans from the fridge on a hot summers day

Clarifies as an ipa however ratebeer states apa. Weak nose, watery a bit w strong bitternes. Not my choice. The fact that is unfiltered saves it a bit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Pure Bar & Kitchen, Birmingham. Gold to amber with white head. Served searingly cold, there is a sharp metallic edge to this, some hop character does battle through but not really enough to excite the taste buds unduly. Somewhat disappointing.

Cask. Clear amber orange beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, pine needles, tropical fruit and peaches. Flavor is spicy with notes of caramel, citrus peaches and mango. Perfectly balanced and incredible for a 5 abv beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg pint in The Bacchus, Birmingham city centre on 30th Aug 2014. Pours a true amber with a good lasting head.
The nose was a grapefruit hoppy affair with other citrus fruits joining in, the taste followed along the same lines with a crisp almost sharp palate. There is a maltiness deep within the brew but hops rule the flavours from start to finish.
