3fourths (9014) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2012
draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration. amazingly soft and delicate hop acid nose (dried grass, light unsweet citrus fruit). dry body, perfectly matched carobnation, malt body and hop acid. quaffable, full and round carbonation froth without any malt goopiness or heaviness. amazing stuff, and probably the favorite from the festival.

Scopey (11744) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle on a number of occasions (the last being my ECR tasting). It pours hazy golden yellow, with a decent white head. The nose is full of juicy citrus fruits (orange, tangerine and pineapple), grass and cat piss. The taste is orange, sweet tangerine, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, fruit salad sweets, pine, yeast and alcohol warmth, with a big bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Yum.

Medium sweet flavor, plenty of bitterness, citrus, pine, some yeasty bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Good hops to finish, oil and resin, bit of lightly toasted bread, pine, faint honey. Very, very good.

Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Crispish palate, a little dry. Lovely blend of hops. Grapefruit, sweetish orange with a veritable smorgasboard of subtler flavours comprising raspberry, kiwi and pineapple. Small amount of aniseed. Finishes crisp. A real grown up fruit salad of a beer. Lovely!
