Bottled 04/12/13. An orange coloured headless beer. A fruity aroma. Peachy notes throughout. A nice body. Good hops and good citricity. Works nicely. Not really an IPA but it is a tasty beer. Touch of sweetness.

RichardGretton (4471) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry and nicely hopped, and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a long lasting bitter finish with some sweetness. Overall a nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Lychee, gooseberry, citrus and elderflower aroma. Fantastic. Lots of residual sweetness against which the bitterness struggles for a few sips before the whole achieves the desired balance. Nonetheless a crisp beer. Very tasty.

Russo (1937) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head that fade out quickly. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, notes of orange and light sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and malty, hints of citrus and biscuit. Low carbonation with a light to medium body and a dry bitter finish.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Cask at Holyrood 9A launch event. Clear orange yellow, thin white head. Nice soft juicy grapefruit, very "Williams" spicy hop nose. Reminds me of Joker. Touch of bready malts, then nice tropical fruit juice sweetness. Touch of pineapple, light grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Good but not outstanding.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 12/10/2012. Golden with a slight white head. Aroma of tangerines and grapefruit with some sweet malt. Flavour had more citrus fruits, pineapple and a touch of spice. Finish was pleasantly long.

Bottle: Deep golden, clear, small stable white foamy layer, distinctive bitter-sweet grapefruity-malty nose; very soft, medium bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; again, lingering, grapefruity-hoppy finish. Nice stuff...

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin head. Aroma is fruity hop. Flavour is a nice mix of fruity sweet and bitterness, peach and apricot with a growing bitter palate.

flying_pig (1251) - SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2013
330ml bottle (Ł2.80, Inn Deep, Glasgow):
A hoppy citrus aroma with some grapefruit and tropical fruits along with a moderately bitter aroma and about average nose strength.
Clear, light golden amber with a thin and patchy lacing on top.
Citrus to start off the taste although this comes across stronger than in the nose. There is some grapefruit and bitterness with the tropical fruits coming through. I could detect some spice as well and some floral hops coming through.
Smooth and light medium bodied beer with a good pine bitterness and plenty of hops with a nice citrus tang. Carbonation levels are medium.

A pleasant and somewhat refreshing taste that proved very easy to drink. The beer went down well and although not one I’d seek out again, it is a beer that I will probably have again at some point in the future.
