I was very excited to get my hands on this. However, my excitement was soon scuppered. Very average and not at all exciting. Didn’t bother with another pint, and probably wouldn’t again.

tomekk1978 (509) - POLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Barwa: słomkowa, sano złota, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: słodowy z delikatna nutą chmielową (cytrusy i trochę geranioli). Ogólnie mało wyrazisty. Smak: dość wytrawny, z wyraźną chmielową kontrą i ziołowym akcentem chmielu, zbliżonym do geranium. Tym razem owoc kooperacji browaru Thornbrodge z ameryksńskim Sierra Nevada. Ten pierwszy miał odpowiadać za słody i drożdże, a drugi za chmielenie (ponoś zastosowano szyszki). Nie jestem zbyt wielkim entuzjastą stylu pale ale, jednak z uwagi na zapowiadanie chmiele amerykańskie Twin Peaks zapowiadało się ciekawie. Nie posiadam informacji dotyczących użytych odmian, ale zdecydowanie mnie one nie przekonały. Walory wizualne były co prawda bardzo dobre, ale aromat już wyraźnie słabszy, nie mówiąc o smaku, w którym dominują geraniole - niezbyt przyjemne. Piwo spędziło, co prawda 2 miesiące w mojej szafie, ale data przydatności jest o wiele dłuższa. Moim zdaniem nie warto.

pivnizub (8920) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
Bouteille: Golden with a greenish haze, loose but stable White head; moderate to distinctive citrussy and grainy nose with a slight piney touch; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, nearly medium bodied and pretty soft; lingering citrussy-fruity finish with a slight tart bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice and pleasant, another gem from Thornbridge...

martjoobolut (793) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2014
Tap at Pudel, Tallinn. Pours clear yellow-golden with small head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is some fruits and malt. Flavor is sweet, fruits, citrus, peach, and caramel. Finish is mild dry-grapefruit bitter. Overall: easy to drink, but not really interesting.
