johninmelb (1124) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Fresh, lemonadey nose with kiwi and honey notes. Pours a hazy pale amber with a bit of sediment. Taste is excellent - rich, hoppy and fat with tropical notes with a long piney finish. A touch of alcohol astringency in there but not too much. Very nice indeed.

RichTheVillan (2509) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; light amber pour with foamy off white head, aroma is very fruity tropical hops, a fruit medley comes through in the taste orange, pineapple, a hint of grapefruit, sweet honey and solid malt backbone.

Keg @ The Bat, Edinburgh [280913]
Golden blonde, clear, white head
Aroma of sweet fruity malts, soft vague resinous hop, getting a hint of corn, some alcohol
Taste of sweet malts, soft bitter citrus hops, not getting corn in flavour, quite boozy
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite oily. Finish as main flavour, warming booze
Overall - Quite decent, bit boozy, didn’t really wow me

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 330ml Bottle. Aroma is peach and honey. Pours a deep golden colour with a white fleeting head. Taste is punchy but not boozy. I think the lime-honey adds a herbal sweetness that balances any undue bitterness. Has lovely balance between malt and hop-forward citrus. Leaves a medicinal sweet-honey taste on palate. Really lively beer and a joy to drink. Would drink more if it wasn’t so high on the ABV.

VsXsV (2175) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2013
Draught. Light hazy golden liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of mango, tangerine, biscuit, lemon peel, bread, fresh hops and some alcohol. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of tangerine, citrus, pine, mango, bread and light booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice but not as good as the old one.

CraftBeerNick (842) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle at home, bought from Brewery, 29th September 13. Smells amazing, sweet, floral, honey. Pours a clear honey colour, the palate is spot on. The taste is orange flower, resin, pine, some alcohol with a bitter hop finish. Very good, slightly boozy. Good DIPA

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - SEP 29, 2013
On tap @ Homo Sibaris, served in Shaker. Pours transparent golden with medium white frothy head. The aroma is mostly caramel + orange, smells pretty good. The flavour is similar in that regard, but there are more lemony (yeasty) notes and hints of tropical fruits. Dry palate. The mouthfeel is light/medium, good carbonation. It’s ok overall.
