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.

Benzai (11840) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle [from Euro Santa 2015] @ home. Hazy orange color, some yeast residu floating in there, medium to full sized quite long lasting dense almost creamy off-white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops, orangepeel, fruitpeel bitter. Reminds me of brett in a way I don’t like it. Medium body, decent to medium carbonation. Hmm not my kind of IPA or my kind of hops perhaps. Too much orangepeel flavors and aroma.

Cuso (6853) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from minutemat as part of European Local swap, many thanks. Hazy orange brown color with thick white head. Very nice citrus hoppy aroma. Extremely hoppy taste of grapefruits, zest, pines, tangerines, light exotic fruits. Long hoppy bitter finish. Nice one.

Ktwse (3166) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Pours hazy amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of mellow grapefruit, pine, citrus and mango. Taste is balanced light grapefruit and pine bitter with somewhat abrupt light bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

This smells, and tastes more like a DIPA than a standard IPA, I has to check the bottle to see the abv. Full of marmalade fruits, with a decent hop influence. Very nice

harrisoni (16051) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
On tap at Tap East. Hazy gold colour lasting thin white head. tropical hop aroma. Bit over carbonated. Some sweet mango and passion fruit. Lots of tropical fruit but also a bit too sweet and the over carbonation is too harsh and prickly. OK.

purpledragons (30) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2015
On keg at Montgomery’s Tower in Shrewsbury. Cloudy yellow in appearance with a dense white head. Very aromatic..... Mixed citrus fruits, orangey-ness standing out. Served a touch too cold, masking some of the flavours, but some mango and orange flavours were coming through. Lots of bite on the finish.

Draught (Black Door, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity hop aroma - light. Alas a touch of sourness creeps in. Rich orange, beautiful spongy head. Taste is messy. Hops are aggressive, and there’s no balance. Messy. Salopian are one of my favourite real ale brewers, I normally expect sane use of hops, but they’ve just lost it in this one. This is below them.

Cask @Black Door. Clear amber color. Medium size, firm and thick head, stays. Fruity, orange, sweet, bit milky in aroma. Nice aroma. Perfume, malty, grainy, bit yeasty, sweet and fruity in taste. Medium bitterness. Hops are tad rough.

Bottle froma deli in Salopian. Hazy golden with a frothy off white head. Quite a bit of sediment floating, but due to a climsy pour. Good fruity grapefruit aroma. The taste is spicy and fruity with notes of pineapple, mango and papaya. Really tasty.
