DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
Missus out sales shopping- time for a late afternoon cheeky. This is exactly the kind of situation this beer is designed for; early doors, after a run, before a run, whilst running, before work, before an interview, during an interview, on your breakfast might be others. Bottle my Dad got me for Xmas, bless his heart. Pours with the archetypal, slightly opalescent Kernel misted-ness; yellowish, bright, foaming and as thick with bits as you want it. Outstanding fresh hop aroma; Sauvignon, lychee, blackcurrant, pineapple jelly. Deep, humming, delicious flavour with all the tropical hop beauty promised by the nose, plus the zest of one lemon and a suggestion of undiluted orange and mango cordial. Then the malt kicks in; sweet, biscuity (shortbread, malted milk, rich tea..) all dunked in bitter, stewed tea. So much more fragrant, humming and hoppier than your typical west coast DIPA. Magnificent.

On tap at the Pint Shop, Cambridge on 19th February 2014. Hazy gold with off-white film and pattern lacing. Fine grapefruit aroma. Exquisite in-mouth: delicate yet rich grapefruit and grassiness meet delicate berry fruits. Grapefuit citric tanginess in a fruity finish, on a crisp, zingy mouthfeel and with medium body. Superb!

500ml bottle. Hops: citra & mosaic. 3.3% abv. Pours very cloudy straw colour with a small white head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Really fantastic aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, herbs and ozone. Huge citrus flavours, particularly grapefruit, with some peach. Some grass, herbal notes and heavy floral hops follow. A good, robust bitter finish. Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. I can barely believe this is 3.3%. Really fantastic.

Desverger (1611) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2012
(keg @The Catford Bridge Tavern, London) Pours golden yellow with a medium white head and healthy lacing. Aroma and taste is fruit hoppy. Citrus and peach waves on the palate. Beautiful and at only 3% so very easily drinkable. Just one more....

zacgillbanks (2088) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy orange-yellow coloured with tropical fruit and citrus flavours and smooth light bodied orange marmalade on the finish. Excellent considering the low ABV.

Borresteijn (4541) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
33cl Bottle bought at Utobeer, thanks Manon! ABV 3.2%, Citra/Amarillo/Columbus hops. Hazy golden yellow colour, white head. Aroma of a glorious hop-fest, lots of citrus, tropical fruits, light pine notes, resin, grapefruit. Flavour is light sweet, crisp malts, dry, citrus and tropical fruits, mango, pine, just a hint of grain, light floral malts, great citrus hoppy bitter finish. Great mouthfeel for a 3.2% beer. Light-bodied. Could drink this all day. Excellent summer beer as well.

16/VI/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - bottled: 22/IV/13, BB: 22/VIII/13 (2013-562) Thanks to Nicki and Mike for transporting the bottle!

Clear pale orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, lots of citrus, piny, resinous, exotic fruits, lots of passion fruit, slightly chemcial. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of citrus, lovely bitter hops, pretty pungent, little fruity, resinous. Aftertaste: more of the same deliciousness. Man, what a great beer!

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Sligthly hazy bright golden/orange with a huge ever lasting white head and intense lacing. Aroma is mild, there’s notes of citrus, mangos, herbs and light malt. Taste is of citrus, tropicals fruits herbs, light but perfect malt backbone and a light bitter finish. Light body (not weak though). Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Great balance. Tasty while being amazingly drinkable. I love this beer!

Keg at Bow Bar. Hazy orange gold, frothy soapy white head fades to a thin film. Tangy grapefruit, soft pine resin, blood orange nose. Softest sweet front, lightest bready malt, thick oily hops, piney grapefruit big bitterness on the finish. Amazing depth of body for the low ABV. Lovely.
