CraftBeerNick (849) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at home, 28th June 14. Good hoppy brew, loved the malt undertones, the aroma is slightly more than the taste, a very decent IPA though

RichTheVillan (2515) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear copper pour with a creamy off white head, tropical hop aroma, taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma, light pine, grapefruit, some vegetable stock, ok bitterness, decent.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Emporium, Bristol. Hazy amber, with a slight off-white head and touch of carbonation. Big and bright aroma of pineapple and grapefruit, with a hint of sweetness. Flavours had plenty more tropical fruit, some crisp, balancing malts and a dryish finish. Excellent.

Scopey (6326) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Corks go Cotham. It pours deep orange-amber with a medium bubbly white head. The nose is passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, mango, bread, earth and a dash of herbs. The taste is crisp, bitter, pine, varnish, resin, passion fruit, pineapple, dried mango, earth, peppery grapefruit, light alcohol and wood polish with a lingering dry-bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp and flavoursome. Works for me!

Niall73 (1419) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle at Drafthouse, Northcote Road. 06/06. Pours a hazy light orange brown with a slightly off white head. Aroma has a sweatiness, light veg funk, light pineapple, grass... Nice. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. The initial taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma which promises a little more than the flavour delivers. Still, there’s a lightness of touch to this and it feels quite refined with a little veg, pine, wood, lemon and bread. Tasty.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Wiper and True, we love you. Insert your own poetic description of scent, taste and beer drinking experience here and then go out and find one of these and drink it. Bloody lovely.

leebotton (185) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Lovely rich, sweet passion fruit aromas, nectarous honey and pineapple. Really zingy fruity hop characteristics. Stoney, grapefruit flavours among a rich dusty base taste. Very slightly fruity biscuit, nutty.
