Awesome. Plenty of tropical fruit, a decent amount of sweet malt, balanced well by sour citrus and a lingering bitter finish. Hops galore. Lovely.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Appearance: can’t see it in the laptop light; slim capped, lightly misted gold, maybe. Aroma of rhubarb, sharp mango, tamarind balls, flecks of vomit and pine, maybe cinnamon with deeper oily resins emerging as it warms. Robust greasy nut base overlaid with mango, pine, lemon mousse, yoghurt and old limes on the turn, Slick condition. Deep malt linger, Strangely shitty, almost lambic-like streaks. Out there.

floydian1 (1004) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle (330ml) purchased in Bristol UK with BB 16/10/14. Hazy deep amber pour with stable white head. Nose offers strong tropical fruits (passionfruit, lychee, pineapple, grapefruit) with piney hops and malts. Taste is noticeably rich and fruity with a robust resinous hop bitterness that lingers but does not overwhelm. Excellent stuff.

Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Friday 8th August 2014 Golden in colour, refreshing, crushingly hoppy, zippy, citrus and a little pithy, ending very dry. Really good, in fact really, really good yet again from Wiper & True. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

CraftBeerNick (922) - 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 (3138) - 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 (6379) - 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 (7058) - 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!
