2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber with clear, persistent white head. Aromas of alcohol, hops and citrus. Taste is overpoweringly bitter. Medium body. Astringent finish. Softens a bit later but no real subtlety from a normally excellent brewery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
