Half pint from a keg at Wandsworth Summer Beer Festival. Hazy light orange with a good foamy head. Very dry, grapfruit notes. In fact very, very dry. Still it does have something to it. Zesty grapefruit aroma. Just a bit overhopped for me.

ATulloch (92) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a lovely hazed light gold with a nice off white colour head which lasts. Amazing hoppy aroma with orange peel, pine and grass. Lovely hop taste with hints of caramel with a touch of something sweet. Maybe peach? Nice pine aftertaste.

500ml : Rich sappy hop nose -Orange zest .spice caramel. Looks good in the Duvel tulip bright golden color. On the palate Saud fruit is there with intense rich hop texture. Personally I’d like a dryer, more bitter finish, the character retains a sweetness without the kinda finish to round it up. Nice elements

calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - JUL 18, 2014
Great lemon aroma, lemongrass, with fruity notes too. The taste has fruit, orange peel, bitter lemon and bitter orange. Has a body like fruit juice. Bitter long and mouth-numbing aftertaste of medium power.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2014
2014-06-27. Crisp lightly hazy bright orange body with a small white head and lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, mild orange and lemon notes but they must be wooed out of the glass. Flavour is similar, mildly bitter throughout, light citrus and tropical fruit, mango or melon like fruit in the finish lingers in the aftertaste. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation suits it nicely. 3+ Tasty. On tap? at Dry Gate, Glasgow

drunkbeer (4) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014 does not count
Rich hop nose. Oranges. Pine. Grass. Bright peach colour with good foamy white head. Flavours are a punch on the tounge with sappy hops. Vibes are spicy, sweet and chewy. Some zest and caramel. I would like a more dry finish to cut the relentless rich intense flavour of the hops : the volume turNed upon bitterness and this would be petty good.

BeerViking (2466) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Tap at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, hazy light amber, thin white head, pine and tropical fruit nose, pine and grapefruit bitter body, syrupy yet dry and a firm bitter edge. Very nice

Andy_ (683) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Clear orange beer with white head. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits, apricot, caramel and pine. Flavor is resinous bitter, berryish, caramelly sweet and fruity. Palate is medium full and oily with medium carbonation and stinging bitterness. Finishes with heavy grapefruity bitterness and honeyish sweetness. Decent IPA.
