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.

purpledragons (51) - 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.

gegwilson (3152) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2015
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.

Towey1989 (1764) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, passion fruit, some mango, maybe slight gooseberry, a little pine, toasted malts and subtle floral hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, passion fruit, some mango, resin, toasted malts, slight earthy nuttiness and subtle floral hops. Full bodied, and an oily texture. A smooth, slightly warming, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A great array of hop flavours, citrus, tropical fruit, resin, earthy and floral. Well balanced with toasted malts too, really nice and smooth to drink.

lokis333 (376) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 1, 2015
Hazy gold color with strong white foam, has very hoppy aroma to it. Palete is rich and full. Tasted of passionfruit and grapefruit mainly, very fruity taste also as an IPA hops was the dominant one here, but lovely beer, nice and different taste to it and sweet in a way.
