Craft Islington bottle share. Thanks to Ade. Hazy gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, decent fine carbonation. Soft sweet creamy malts. Sweet orange peel and a little grapefruit. Good spicy pine. More citrus but bitterish on the finish. Comes together well. Spicy linger.
Bottle at Craft Islington, thanks to Mr Tipple! It pours cloudy golden - amber with a medium off-white head. The aroma is fresh, green, grassy, bread, lemon rind, and tangerine. The taste is crisp, dry, bready malt base, fresh, wood, lemon, green, grassy, spring onion, light spice, and tropical fruits (incl mango). Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Fresh and flavoursome. Good stuff. minutemat (8195) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2017
330ml bottle, from trade with Anstei. Many thanks! Pours a hazy orange, white head. Big exotic fruit on the nose, giving an accurate premonition to its fruity hop character. Bucketloads of exotic fruit, grapefruit, mango with a soft limey bitterness. Great flavoursome IPA. The_Osprey (10532) - SCOTLAND - MAY 1, 2017
April 2017 - Bottle share at CBC Islington. Big thanks to Mr Tipple. As ’523 Tiger’. Hazy orange, still with a big foamy off-white head, leaving light lacing. Aroma is a little oniony, peachy. Body is light with soft carbonation. Taste is mango and peach, spicy. Pretty tasty stuff. Good first impression from this brewery. (3.8)

UPDATED: APR 27, 2017 Bottle, many thanks anstei! Hazy glowing orange color with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit salad, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, just a bit of sweatsocks, but they fit in perfectly, flowery. Taste is again tropical fruit salad with all the fruits, a bit of a tart sting. Warming finish. A bit overcarbonated (stirring it out, it was better and smoother - my palate score applies to the version after stirring the carbonation out with a fork). Good one! Ritzn (3096) - GERMANY - APR 27, 2017
Hazy golden with large white head. Aroma is grapefruit, peach, some pepper, exotic fruit, some juice. Taste is good malty body, sweet and rounded, some bitterness later. A bit heavy while swallowing, but incredibly smooth. Good one. jfb (8025) - Bamberg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2017
(bottle) murky golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of herbal hops, barnacles and yeast, quite sweaty, with some notes of earth and kiwi skins. flavour is mostly watermelon, pears and brown sugar, with more sweatsocks, some very light bubble-gum and a medium-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. jonas (10286) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 27, 2017
Bottle. Nice tropical hop profile - mango, lychee, sweaty pineapple. Milky yellow, white lace. medium light foamy body, pleasant hop forward, juicy, minerally pine finish. earthy retronasal. Good in small doses I think.
