pkomar (32) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle into glass, bought @ Centrala Piwna, Poznań. Fruity aroma, mango, pineapple, a bit of citrus and floral notes. Smells great, but could have been more intense. Superb appearance. Rich, white head, nice lacing. clear, yellow liquid. Taste is very refreshing, medium bitterness, definitely not a sweet beer. Medium carbonation. Great APA overall, as it should be.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Keg at CBC Islington, London. Pours clear yellow, effervescent, with a tight, white cream head. Bright lemon, straw and pee in the nose. Light, almost medium sweet flavor with brisk, bright lemon, some dry grass, lime, pine needles. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Super fresh, clean finish, lots of understated citrus fruits, light bitterness, a bit of pee, lime, lemon. No, it isn’t heavy-handed, but it’s the most drinkable and fresh beer of the night.

RichardW (1499) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Big, lovely pineapple and mango aroma, sherbert lemon on the tongue, big tingly palate, very pale gold and extremely moreish. On a par with Jaipur and Halcyon, with just a little less body, but a great beer.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2013
[keg at Craft N1] Brilliantly clear yellow pour, with an inviting white head. Aroma is lemon, lime, pine air freshener. Very lemon zesty on the flavour, leading to a long, dry, grassy finish. Tastes something like a lemoned-up version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (which I mean in a good way). Hugely refreshing, all round. A real belter [06032013]

jamesie1857 (1371) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
On keg at Coach and Horses - fine clear yellow body, robust white head. Sharp notes of citrus and hoppy tartness in the nose, something similar in the taste, with a sweetness on the way out. Class act. Nice one.
