COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - July 2013. Also available bottle conditioned.

Hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka and Galaxy. Brewed using malted barley and wheat. A surge of pine engulfs the palate while hints of orange and watermelon cascade across a dry and tempered bitter landscape. The finish is long and defined with a whisper of sweetness.

Bottle from Wine Cellar, Sanderstead. It pours cloudy golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is fresh, peachy, tangerine, mango, passion fruit, creamy, faint spice and marmalade. The taste is bitter-sweet, orange, tangerine, grapefruit zest, passion fruit, earthy, light alcohol and resin, with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Very nice orange citrus. Pretty impressive stuff from Salopian.

McNeillR (1303) - SCOTLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Lampshade bright, greyed light haze and a filmy/mouldy head. Nice peppery lemon sherbert nose, light dusty with clear IPA intent. Firm hum of carbonation. Flickers of steely lime and puffs of creaminess. Chalky sweetness like those wee white candy sticks. Over bitter toward the finish clips the wings a little. Decent enough.

Bottle, The Vineyard Belfast

12th September 2013
Very hazy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and airy with fine carbonation. Creamy malt with notably sweet lactose. Floral hops and peachy tropical fruits and subtle grape. Semi dry finish with a mild bitter linger. Not bad, but too much sweet malt to be very good.
