Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Sat on the sofa, drinking this beer. Enjoying it. And I am the Sofa King. Oh yes. Well... apart from the Missus... and the dog. He’s the real Sofa King. Actually, it’s him. Then the Missus. And then me. Nice beer, though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mogwai Bar&Mat. Aroma holds citrus, fresh hops and ,of course, tropical fruits. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Taste has some hops but isn’t very tasteful. Palate is quiet stray. Not a blockbuster but an okay beer.

Not that special. Sure; a lot of hop in a pale ale, but that needs more alcohol to really fly.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bread, grass, citrus, dough, raisin, good balance between malt and hops. A lot of the malty beers don’t have this good hop taste, I would definitely buy it again.

Big offwhite head. Hazy opaque amber body. Fruity resiny aroma with
grassy spicy notes. Dryish resiny taste with fruity notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel, slightly astringent. Dryish spicy
fruity mealy aftertaste with resiny notes. Quite nice, but a bit too
much dregs, and a bit less complexity than it should have had. (0.33l
