On draught at stickmen- pours clear copper with medium thick head. Nose of hop, pine, and roasted malt. Smooth and frothy mouthfeel. Taste is of bitter hop balanced somewhat with malt however definitely finishes on the dry side.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from b2. Big piney bitterness balanced with fruity sweetness. As the brew warms the sweetness becomes a bit overpowering. A muddled finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beermongers. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is super sweet like passion-fruit or mangoes. The flavor is just huge watermelon, I guess some caramel, light bitterness, oranges, a big dose of super sweet late boil, but it meets with the sweetness of the malt to make it way too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Stickmen Brewery & Skewery. Clear amber color with golden notes. Aroma is pungent pine, citrus, and passionfruit hop notes. Taste is resinous pine, caramel citrus, tart grapefruit, and an earthy note. Not very bitter, but quite the hop bomb.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On firkin at Bailey’s, pours a cloudy opaque dirty orangey brown with a medium bubbly off-white head. Aroma brings out dank earthy hops, English malts and caramel. Flavour is over-malted, with notes of caramel, English malts, earthy hops, and residual sugars. Not very well-balanced - this is way too sweet for the style. And despite the nice mouthfeel from the firkin, it’s not easy drinking. Becomes more and more undrinkable with each sip. Couldn’t finish my glass.
