Bottle. Neck is all tropical fruits. On pouring that’s overtaken by a white wheatiness. Looks like a lager. Taste is....worse than mediocre. The overly subtle bitterness and hops is washed out by an all pervading wateriness and an unpleasant little bastard of stale lager fizz. Tastes like dry hopped Perrier water. Emperor, clothes etc.

Keg at Jessop House, Cheltenham, Gloucs. Gold with white head. Straight into a lovely hoppy character with this beer, there is a hop oil presence, nicely sticky with grapefruit zest and kiwi fruit to the fore. Bitter and pleasantly sharp, the body is fairly simple, if a little light. Overall very decent.

Wow. West coast IPA meets NZ (still getting to know them) hops. I love it. Will definitely search this one out again. Citrus, grapefruit and bitter passion fruit in the hops. Balance from the malt. Decent head. Goes down very easily,

Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, passion fruit, mango, slight pine, a little caramel and subtle herbal hops. Taste of passion fruit, mango, orange, some gooseberry, slight resin, a little caramel and subtle herbal hops. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A lingering but soft, fruity, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Great tropical fruit flavours in this balanced by subtle malt and resinous and herbal hops. Well made as per from Weird Beard. The first and the best I’ve had on cask by these.

Flaska från Alees by mail. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, smörkola med toner av tropisk frukt och citrus. Lagom sötma, fruktig, lätt kropp och beska.
