Craft. Clear amber beer, small cream coloured head. Palate is soft but with a stinging carbonation lurking. Nice sweet hops! Sweet pine with sweet generic fruits - orange and peach most readily identifiable. Malt cream. Minerals. Crisp finish. Nice beer!

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at CPK. Pours a clear golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Keg at CPK, London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white cream head. Lovely dry pine and orange nose. Very smooth flavor, well rounded, light to medium sweet with touches of pine, toasted malts, orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, great balance, moderate sweetness, pleasant hop kick of pine, lightly toasted grass, tangerine and grapefruit. Excellent IPA.

EdKing (1834) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2012
On Keg in Cask P&K. Pours russet orange, crystal clear, medium white cream head with thick white lacing on glass. Nose is tropical fruit, mango, papaya, touch of passion fruit and pineapple, then it’s prickly hop, nettle, and caramel malt. Taste is prickly bitter green hop, and ctirous bitter fruit. Not so much soft fruit in this and the finish is a prickly green hop, pine and spice on the tongue.

On keg at The Cask Pub and Kitchen. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering pineapple and passion fruit again. Very nice.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Keg @ CPK. The pour’s deep, hazy amber orange with a massive white head. The nose is burning floral hops, mild cheddar cheese, some apricot and glazed brioche bread. Light grapefruit. The taste is mild tropical mango, some meaty peach and summer fruit sweetness. Apricot. A hefty malt presence reigns in the bitter finish of this beer. Good balance. A bit syrupy. Very smooth for the ABV. Overall, quite nice.
