Pale in colour, hazy, golden. Aromas are slightly spicy, very citrussy (grapefruit). Really bitter, hoppy taste - I drank this slightly chilled, which seemed to suit the style well. Good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours bronze in colour with a thin white head that soon disappears. Powerful hop aroma, lots of pine and resin. The taste is also strongly bitter. Lightly carbonated, the palate remains coated with resin hop. One for the hop enthusiast, the beer is only let down by being thin in body.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Platform Tavern, Southampton. This is the third Vibrant Forest beer I’ve had, and I wasn’t that impressed with the previous two (one was a drain pour). This is, thankfully, better, as Vibrant Forest is one of my local breweries; though I suspect that, as the brewery appears to focus on hops rather than malt and yeast, I doubt I will be getting that excited about their output. This, though, was drinkable enough. Sweet citric tangerine. Sweet, refreshing and easy drinking. Perhaps too sweet with a little too much brown sugar flavour. But OK.
