downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Deep gold in colour with a short-lived white head and moderate carbonation. tropical fruit aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a suggestion of pine. Flavour had more fruit, solid, biscuity malts, leading to a dryish, slightly peppery finish. Enjoyable.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
355ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (6+:3:6-:3:13=3.1)
Pale orange. Fruity hop aroma, citrussy. Refreshing palate. Nice citrus tangerine zesty taste. Malts decent too. Simple, but delicious. Good for a golden ale, not a weak beer, a proper nice bitter, just modernised a bit.

Bottle. Appearance is very clear, golden, lots of carbonation, a big foamy white head of 1-2 fingers which lasts. Aroma- lots of fruit- grapefruit and orange, lemony, fresh hops. Taste- medium to full mouthfeel. Lots of hop bitterness, citrus fruit hints, malty, caramel undertones, bitter orange. Impressive.

jamesie1857 (1345) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
On keg at Sheaf View, Sheffield - clear amber body, little or no head. Bitter cuitrus on the nose, grapefruit and tropical in the front. Taste has a harshness that is both sweet and bitter, almost barley sugar, with a long sour ending. Not bad.

JonMoore (1846) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle - old gold colour with slim white head. Citrus hop aroma with tropical fruits. Nice well balanced hoppy flavour with a long bitter finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Feels more like a pale ale than an IPA, but very good nonetheless.

wimpyjoe (3549) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a head. Good fruity tropical nose, although as it has plenty of strength its taste is a little more subdued but still citrus notes you associate with the tropics.
