Kingi (460) - - SEP 26, 2013
Almost no head, Golden Yellow. Light sweetness on the aroma. Taste is very bitter, light sourness also. Finish is very long and bitter dry. Excellent beer if bitter and dry is ur thing.

minutemat (1286) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Fairly bitter with big helping of grapefruit, crisp pine and a little juicy citrus. Big bold hops and a restrained ABV make for a drinkable, if rather dry, Pale.

wimpyjoe (3484) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Amber-orange with a thick creamy head. Despite a higher than average strength there’s little evidence of it in its flavours and has a high citric hoppy, tropical fruit aroma with plenty of tropical fruits in its taste. Good body.

jmgreenuk (4011) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle at Deans impromptu Monday Tasting, Den Haag. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin white head and some broken white lace. The aroma is rich nettle hop citrus malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a rich tropical fruit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lots going on. Lots of fresh fruit flavours.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Clear golden pour crowned with a small off white head. Some fragrant grassy hop in the nose alongside some citrus. Similar flavour with some biscuity malts and well rounded bitterness. Dryish finish. An above average APA.
