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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

JDW, Rochester. Pale yellow. A delicate biscuit malt underlies a fragrant buzz of hops. Refreshing but not aggressive. Good.

Bottle. golden with a small head. Quite lively upon pouring with a hoppy bitterness. An excellent crack at an American Pale Ale and well worth checking out.
