shoulderbroken (1989) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at home bought direct from brewery. Strong aroma of cat pee, pine, bit of grass and bit of citrus. Pours hazy orange with a nice white foam. Medium bitterness, fairly full bodied with a nice lingering grapefruity sourness. Pretty damn good!

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at my East Croydon beer tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours light hazy orange, with a thin bubbly white head and low carbonation. The nose is cat piss, grass, sweet orange, melon, lemon and cabbage. The taste is orange, lemon, lime, cat piss, biscuit, pine, brown bread and grass, with a lighter bitter finish. I would like to have a more intense Riwaka flavour to make a proper judgment of this hop.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. Pours hazy gold with a foamy, white head. Very raw, grassy hop nose, bit of pine, some melon. Medium sweet flavor, toasty malts, a littly salty, slight urine and grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, mild pine, grass and grapefruit hops, some toast and sugar. Very nice, super drinkable.
