Scopey (5530) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle The Wine Cellar, Sanderstead. It pours pale golden with a thick white head. The nose is orange, candied peel, pine, sherbet and honeysuckle. The taste is crisp, bitter, pine, orange peel, grapefruit, grassy edge, pepper and earth/dirt with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and moderate+ carbonation. Rather nice work from Salopian.

Tselloufc88 (11) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2014
Pint at Drapers (formerly the infamous Brown’s) Coventry. Colour is a warm orange, with a small white head. Aroma of pine, slightly alcoholic too. Very very initially first taste with tropical fruit and orange middle and an easy bitter finish. Nice one. A touch dangerous at 7%! Nice.

McNeillR (979) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2014
Hazy rustic orange, decent lasting a off white head. Creamy, spritely malt - edges of elderflower and lime. Taught sinkable bitterness throughout is about the only resonating character here. Initial taste of keylime, middle is a terse citrus and grapefruit squeeze and the finish is a floral oven roasted orange. Creamy cereal finish and a hungry dry linger. Supremely drinkable and the simplicity behind the hop-combo is a cracking bitter balance.
