3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose of tropical fruit and sweetness, like a touch of caramel. Powerfully bitter, with a solid American-hopped base. Tasty and moreish. Very pleasant international-inspired take on an English pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden amber with minimal head that quickly recedes. Strong citrus aromas - mandarin, some grapefruit, cracker like malt, a little papaya. The taste has a strong grassy hop bitterness that builds all the way to the mouth puckering finish, along with grapefruit, marmalade, crackers. Light bodied. Much more of an IPA but too much harsh character bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB11/07/16
Pours a somewhat murky orangey body with a ring of white foam persisting.
Punchy nose to it - grassy, herby, lychee/tropical, citrusy hops in abundance, touch of caramel underneath.
Full bodied, there’s some malt to chew on there, subdued carbonation.
Hoppy body - resiny, grass, spicy, dank herbs & citrus, with an underpinning caramel malt body and great big WALLOP of grassy bitterness that lingers for eternity!
Pretty good pale - that bitterness though!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
C’est effectivement très frais avec des airs de coriandre et léger menthol en fin de bouche ... Un joli nez fruité aussi, de la pêche, genre bonbon acidulé... Une certaine complexité dans les arômes en bouche. Gaz agréable et entreprenant. L’étiquette me faisait pas trop envie mais finalement, voici une très jolie dégustation. Bue en compagnie d’un ceviche d’espadon maison avec beaucoup d’herbes. Les deux mets se sont agréablement fait face.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
200 ml. draft @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria during the Redchurch Tap Takeover. Very hazy golden orange, small solid white head. Nose is pine, mango, tropical hops, strongly dry, low yeast. Taste is big dry grass hop profile, low tropical peach, hay, grass, tropical qualities are brief, light yeast, finish is long, dry, the more I drank it, the more I started getting an odd band-aid note which took this one down for me. Body is dry with band-aids. Decent, shame about the band-aid note. Still pleasant enough.
