downender (6635) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Beer Emporium, Bristol. Deep amber in colour with a decent, off-white, head. Bg, hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, pineapple and green herbs. Full-bodied, with dense malts, more tropical fruits and some heavy herbs, leading to a lengthy, bitter finish with the Mosaic hops dominant. Very good.

tdtm82 (838) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle; 3rd March 2015. Looks like hazy orange tango. Raw onions; dry and delicate. Perfume. Really good clean malt-base, sugar residue, orange tart. Good blast of hops. Citra is very well hidden. Amarillo shines. Nice.

RichTheVillan (3925) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy amber pour with a creamy white head, aroma has freshly mown grass and some first citrus, taste has tangerine, some citrus, some dank skunky hops, a hint of spice, mellow bitterness, very enjoyable.

Niall73 (2108) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
750ml Bottle - 7.1%. Batch 2. Pours a slightly murky amber brown with a lot of visible fine carbonation and a white head. Nice aroma with caramel, toasted dark bread, passion fruit, wet leaves, light dankness... Medium body, medium carbonation. There a little hit of booze, orange, toast, grapefruit, light piney resinous stuff. A touch lacking in trop fruitiness the aroma promised and there’s a slight thinness to it. I’ll see if this needs a new entry as batch 2. Nice though.

JohnRMurdoch (3557) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2015
750ml bottle (7.1% abv) from BeerRitz. Amber brown, not much head. Woody tar hop aroma. Leafy hop flavour. Sharp with bitter hop aftertaste. Similar to Kernel IPAs.

imdownthepub (10980) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Whistle Wines, Exeter, Devon. Hazy gold with white head. There is a slight acrid note in the aroma but not in a bad way, it is just a hint of the hoppiness to come. Dry, zesty hop flavours, bittering grapefruit with lemon pith and a tropical fruit note, the whole gammut of likeable hop notes. It’s a bobby dazzler.

zacgillbanks (2806) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with juicy tropical fruit and orange marmalade flavours followed by a creamy zesty citrus and pine finish. Superb!

Fin (8006) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle picked up from AP Harvey Wines, Earlsdon, Coventry, Sunday 9th November 2014 Pours mid gold, slightly hazy. Lemony nose. In the mouth it is as expected an assertive hop forward beer, but not too bossy or extreme,in fact the blend of the five hops works marvellously, its excellent. Dry finish otherwise a nice bittesweet erring on dryness throughout. Great. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

Beersiveknown (3560) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from Glug, Newcastle
Hazy pale amber, dank hops, resin and citrus pith on nose, full bodied, initial pithy bitter hit followed by hay and rhubarb notes from sorachi. Long pithy finish. An enjoyable IPA but lacking wow factor of Australia or summer.
