Honey/caramel/popcorn/orange straight up not a huge fruit taste not a huge hop taste good but lacking that something special. What fruit you do get is zesty and pithy

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2013
Half from the keg menu at Vintage. Patchy surface blanketing the glassware. The body colour is red-brown, cloudy. Fruity aroma of oranges and fresh apricots. Leafy hop driven flavours supported by sappy fruits. Long-lived fruit bitter end, half-dry. Medium bodied. Pretty nice (Leith 11.08.2013).

allmyvinyl (4248) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2013
On tap at Red Squirrel. Hazy amber with a good white head. Big grapefruit aromas, touch of pine, some caramel malt behind that. Very bitter on the taste, perhaps a touch too much for something this strong? Hops kind of over-power everything else, and linger for some time afterwards. Interesting though.

JohnRMurdoch (3412) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Keg @ Inn Deep. Muddy caramel brown colour, not much head. Doesn’t look like a beer. Big leafy hop aroma. Dry grassy grapefruit hop flavour. Very bitter aftertaste. Quite strange this one but very bitter and hoppy.

SaintMatty (5537) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle (EBBC 2013 Edinburgh) - Hazy amber. Pine, citrus, gooseberries and lime in the aroma. Hoppy and tany taste with pine, grain, grapefruit and toffee standing out. Interesting and very refreshing.

golden with catspiss pithy mango on the nose, fairly hop-forward with an alba/nollaig piney finish. Another fab beer from these guys.
