On tap at Cardinal. Misty golden body with a lasting small white head. Pollen, citrus and tropical fruits mix with pine and resin to invite me to taste the beer. Refreshing hop juice rich with fresh hop aromas. Medium bodied. Smooth to drink.

On tap at Cardinal’s big Brewers’ Night, Golden colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma of tropical fruits and citrus. Lovely hops in the flavour too, but the malty base is a tad too sweet for my taste, with the typical American crystal malts / orange marmalade character. Still a fine beer, which I’d be happy to sample again.

Hazy amber. Quickly disappearing off-white head. Wonderful aroma of grape fruit and orange marmelade. Grape fruit in taste as well. Lots of taste as well as good drinkability. Bitter grape fruit seeds in aftertaste.

Strong in hops, but not too bitter. Had this right at Three Floyd’s pub. Loved it.

Fresh from a newly bottled batch this beer has wonderful citrus with an earthy quality. Dry finish which leaves hops on the pallate. Wonderful malt back bone. I've had bottled examples that didn't seem to hold up like the beer I had at the pub. The fresh bottle was wonderful. Straight up.
