500ml bottle. Pours a deep gold almost copper, white fizzy head. Aroma of citrus and pine. States full of hops, about as hoppy as a frog that’s been under a road roller. Quite nice on the palate though and smooth.

Drinkable bottle of beer. Dissapointed as it claims to be super hoppy. A little to malty for my taste.

StueyD (1233) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2014
A dark reddish orange coloured beer with a thick white head. A light biscuity malt aroma, is followed by a slight to soapy fresh hop aroma bring a hint of lemony citrus fruit. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter, tart hoppy taste, bringing grassy and citrusy flavours to the fore, this is underpinned by a slightly sweeter, biscuity and caramel malt flavour. The finish is well balanced with equal amounts of hops and malt.
