Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - JUL 19, 2011
Cask at The Caley. A dark golden ale with a fair beige head. Aroma is dominated by resinous, fruity hops. Specifically passionfruit, pineapple and mango. Quite sweet with some caramel also. Flavours of passionfruit and pineapple. A little bitterness too with an oily mouthfeel. Fruity hop linger. Very nice but a bit sweet for me.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. My first from this brewery. If they have any more like it then I have something to look forward to. Hops and fruitiness hit you hard. Nothing subtle about this one. Impressive.

JefVerstraete (1574) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Deliciously Different. Cloudy yellow colour, white foam. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit and a lemony touch. Light sweet with tart notes and fine bitter hoppy finish. Easy drinkable, very good.

A beer that should be experienced in bottles and on tap. Refreshing yet enjoyably has some depth. A go to brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Tap. Redwillow Bar, Macclesfield. 1st October. Hazy gold. Thin, white head. Is there Sorachi in this? Savoury. Grain. Light fust. Some rubber. Taste is savoury bitter. Crisp palate. Finishes zesty bitter. Unusual. Very nice, though.

totoro76 (25) - SPAIN - AUG 27, 2014
Una APA de trigo, sonaba bien. Sin embargo, no me ha entusiasmado. Es una buena cerveza, refrescante, con sus sabores a pino y frutas tropicales, pero "le falta algo"; tal vez es porque es más una Ale inglesa que una American PA y esperaba otra cosa. Recomendable, eso si.

Jow (2263) - New York, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Tap at Nobles a bar in Leith. Pours orange and nice tropical fruit nose. Tastes of vanilla, creamy pine if that makes any sense, mangos, grapefruit, and hops. nice smooth mouthfeel a refreshing brew

this is a superb ale, one that I could drink regularly. Full of flavour and very smooth. You have to try this if you see it.

2014-07-10. Crisp dark yellow body small frothy white head. Aroma is mild, notes of straw and wheat. Flavour is lightly bitter, muted fruit, touch of lemon. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but on the mild side. Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival
