Gary (1305) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
Bottled; Pale golden with a shy white head. Aroma gives me lychee . wood. pine. grapefruit . Hops are not that bright on the palate ; some citrus bitterness; earthy gritty hopiness . Theres some sweetness backdrop. For me this could use the volume turned up in all regardess .

spacecube (658) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
330 ml bottle, pours golden brown with a light haze. Very US hoppy aroma with a generous amount of slightly dank biscuit and honey malt. The hops are pineapple, grapefruit and guava with overpower the initial malt impression. The body is medium with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Nice beer.

Quack-Duck (7522) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy deep golden colour, creamy white head. Lovely tropical hop aroma. Solid malty bas ebalancing the fruity hop flavours. Loads of tropical fruit such as mango, papaya, lychee... Delicious and very, very moreish.

johninmelb (1117) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle from Darts Farm. Tons of lychee on the nose - a little gooseberry, lemon and spicy pine as well. Clean gold with a big fluffy head. Flavour is not bad - golden ale style honey malt notes submit quickly to big dry hop flavours of burnt orange peel and juicy mango. Finish is long and dry. Nice. Not great, but a reasonable session ale.

Stumblor (64) - - JUN 15, 2013
Pours with almost no head, oily thick and fain bubbling. Smells of clean bathrooms (bleach?) not pleasant at all. Tastes loads better thankfully, with only slight reference to the nose. Apples, allspice, lemons, hay. Quite hoppy, but not a bomb! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
JDW, Rochester. Pale yellow. A delicate biscuit malt underlies a fragrant buzz of hops. Refreshing but not aggressive. Good.
