Lukaduke (2436) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft @ ProPig. Pours a light to medium golden with a finger of white foam. Light aromas of tropical fruit and cracker malts. Palate is bright crisp and dry.... Very crushable with light toasted malts, I great balance of I tropical fruit, guava, pine and some earthy straw that lingers in the bitter finish with a excellent dryness.

Bottle from the Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Amber with a frothy white head. A nice hoppy brew with floral and resinous notes as well as a caramel malt base. The bitter finish tastes quite clean and leaves it feeling a bit thin. Nice though.

A hazed golden amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, strange fruit malt, with light catty and floral hops, light sulfur, interesting. In mouth, a grainy malt with loads of alcohol, light coriander, floral and piney, light catty notes, interesting. On tap at redlight redlight.

Chrishrt30 (102) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2014
HUGE fluffy white head and a crystal clear light amber beer. Very aromatic, florals, melon, big fruits, spices bad very citric. A very bitter sweet beer, like a caramel cream cake with a ton of lemon. Nice sweet caramels and nut with lots of resins and citrus bitterness. The finish is fresh and sweet, pancakes with lemon and sugar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

leaparsons (8461) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle. Golden brown with a large white foam. Aromas are biscuit with resinous pine and leafy, herbal notes. Grapefruit with mellow oranges and spices. Flavours are sweet biscuit with tropical fruit and woody, floral pine. Resinous green notes with a spicy finish. Citrus rind bitterness. Pretty good but not as good as expected.

Bottle from Cornelius. Surprisingly light amber pour. Bug white head. Very clean lemon and vanilla nose. Sweet resin and floral taste. Tart with creamy body. Way lighter than I expected.

mcberko (7790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy darker orange with a large white foamy head. Nose brings out truckloads of grassy pils hops, some spice, and corn - very inviting aromatics. Flavour is very well-balanced, bringing out varied notes of corn, spicy and grassy hops, and maybe a slight biscuity malt backing. Spicy, grassy, and hoppy, with full carbonation. Excellent stuff.

hawthorne00 (2628) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head that lasts very well. Aroma of lemon, lime, honey, peach, cantaloupe. Creamy texture, quite high carbonation. There’s a fair bit of sweetness, but bitterness comes in straight away. Citrus is zestier (and more grapefruity) than suggested by the aroma. A melange of tropical and stone fruit and a bit of a rush with the citrus towards a rather dry and fairly bitter finish. Some pine and pepper show up there too. Kept thinking I’d started this too cold and some more depth and charm might emerge, but it never loosened up. Still pretty good though.
