Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Slightly hazy pale golden pour. The nose is tropical. Lots of fresh hops and a sort of orange creamsicle character. Quite a soft bitterness along with a bit of nice crackery character on the back. Really damn tasty. Bitterness really sneaks up on this one. A little bit of a fruity esters - more peach/pear than anything. Tasty.

Bottle from The Vineyard. Clear dinner tinted gold, fine off white head. Piney resin, citrus, Clementine, caramel in the aroma. Big robust bitterness in the flavour, some fruity notes from the hops and lots of citrus too. Surprisingly light in body, quite fizzy.

Barwa złota, piwo delikatnie mętne. Średnio obfita piana, złożona z bardzo dużych, nietrwałych pęcherzyków. Świetny, słodki aromat owoców tropikalnych. Obecne nuty brzoskwini, ananasa, bardzo dojrzałego mango. Aromat nieco zbliżony do Imperial IPA, jednak nie aż tak cukierkowo słodki. Piwo jest bardzo mocno wysycone, może nawet trochę przegazowane. W smaku nieco więcej białych owoców niż żółtych. Pojawiają się nuty liczi, mandarynek. Posmak słodko goryczkowy. Goryczka niewielka, ale bardzo szlachetna, grapefruitowa, jakby pochodziła prosto z miąższu świeżego grapefruita. Świetne piwo.
