500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a good smooth white head. Good floral hoppy aroma. Citrus flavours, sherbet, plenty of hops, floral notes and perhaps a touch of honey. Well carbonated, perhaps a bit much so, but otherwise excellent.

Diabobale (370) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 30, 2016
Dal colore dorato quasi arancio, molto pulito, con schiuma bianca fine non abbondante e discretamente persistente. Al naso sprigiona note agrumate (pompelmo e buccia di limone) e note resinose su una buona base di note di crosta di pane. Al palato non è molto carbonata con un corpo tendente al watery. In bocca tanto amaro agrumato e resinoso fin da subito (buccia di limone e pompelmo, aghi di pino) con finale ancora resinoso ed erbaceo. Secchezza ottima e pulizia ed equilibrio ottimamente allineati.

pivnizub (9729) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy, stble medium-sized white head; distinctive (exotic-)fruity nose with some subdued piney traces, pale malt and bread still present, but barely detectable; moderate bitter and mildly sweet flavour, soft MF, nearly medium bodied; dryish and lingering bitter-fruity finish with a delicate touch of cough-syrup in the aftertaste. Another Thornbridge-goody…

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
500ml bottle: BBD 18 Aug 16. Poured at home into an Arrogant Bastard Ale badged US straight sided 16oz glass (didn’t fit) on 20 Nov 15. Slight haze to the mid-golden body, on top an impressive foam blanket of tight white bubbles. Hops all the way here, yet not overly bitter at first, it does progress towards real bitterness in the finish though. Some fruit esters within both the nose and taste with mild citrus notes in the background.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2015
Dorada anaranjada. Nebulosa. No mucha espuma blanca. Aroma lupulado, citrico. Muy agradable en boca, con base acaramelada y rico tono frutal con notas citricas y de uvas. Cuerpo moderado y bien de gas. Equlibrada, refrescante y bebible.
