Aroma: Grass, wood, grapefruit, caramel and dry, dusty yeast.

Appearance: Murky amber body with tiny yeast particles floating around. Large off-white head. No visible carbonation. Excellent lacing.

Taste: This tastes incredibly fresh and hoppy with a lovely soft yeast flavour. Blood orange, grass and lime - sharp and bitter. Delicious.

Palate: Medium body with a very oily texture. Soft carbonation.

Overall: A dry, tangy IPA - maybe the driest beer I’ve ever tasted. Very pithy and citric. In my opinion, this is better than Tryst’s Raj IPA.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 21, 2013
[cask, the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Very slightly hazy amber beer, with a decent white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus, some tropical fruit – but mostly pithy bitter numbers. On the taste, grassy at first, but builds to that trademark Tryst bitter lemon/lime finish. Good stuff at first, further on down, become a touch astringent. Nice, though [19062013]

northropfrye (3299) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Cask at Blackfriars, Glasgow. Amber colour, hoppy aroma, nice bitter aftertaste, soft palate. Not bad, nor am I sure why it’s classified as "golden ale" rather than IPA.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle at home. Vivid golden orange pour, thick foamy head. Nice bubbly orange peel, sherbet and a touch of warm biscuit on the nose. Dry, pithy orange peel, touch of grapefruit, really quite bitter, slightly herbal, long puckering lemon bitter finish. Very hoppy indeed, but very good.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 08/07/13. A darker gold coloured beer with a white head and lace. A big fruity hoppy beer. The aroma has good peachy notes. It’s not as good in the mouth where inspite of the obvious hops, the malts give a little too much sweetness. It’s all pretty decent but doesn’t really deliver the promise of the nose.

Cask at the southern. Pours pale amber with good white head. Big aromas for a cask beer, all citrus and tropical fruit. Taste bring some biscuit malt balance. Finishes a bit thin.
