4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home in London - procured from the brewery a few days ago. Pours ever so slightly hazy gold with a strong, frothy off-white head. The aroma screams with juicy, ripening citrus, some mineral dryness, a bit of day-old cat urine. Medium sweet flavor with oodles of juicy citrus, touches of tropical fruits, more pee, enough bready malt base to hold it all together. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet and resinous to finish, dripping orange and papaya, softened pine needles, some further pee, hints of lime, tangerine. Delicious. Kernel on form.

330 ml bottle, approx 4 weeks from bottling date. Nice hoppy aroma with sweet orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, guava, basically a lovely fruit salad. These 3 hops go really well together, finish is long, juicy and slightly bitter. Carbonation is quite lively, palate is resiny. Very nice.

Bottle from Kernel. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The nose is sweet tangerine, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, sponge cake and muffin. The taste bitter-sweet, sweet orange, juicy tropical fruit, tinned pineapple, peppery edge, touch of alcohol warmth and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Fruity, well balanced and very drinkable. Rather delicious stuff.

Grain with pineapple and mango on the nose. Very juicy, bags of crisp flavour with hops, peach melba, fruit, and more grain. Pleasantly syrupy. What more can you say about this absolutely legendary brewery - complete dons! Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CBC, Clerkenwell. Pours a clear golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Tap at CBC Clerkenwell. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Quickly disappears leaving spotty lacing. Nose shows very punchy tropical fruits - mango, passionfruit, white grapes. Akin to passion fruit yoghurt, almost lactose notes. Taste akin to a tropical punch bowl of fruits. There is some light biscuit behind it all but the taste is overrun by largely tangy driven fruits. Bitter sweet profile with a medium - light mouth feel. Solid stuff
