Cask at the Euston Tap - London. Beer was listed as ’Arbor Mosaic IPA 5.9%’, which seems like a fairly large difference from the 6.8% listed for this entry. If somebody can confirm these two examples are the same beer, please let me know. Anyway, it pours clear gold with a creamy white cap. Lovely pissy hop nose with delicate citrus accents. Medium sweet flavor with loads of fresh urine - perhaps a man’s, perhaps a cat’s - with a bit of tangerine and balancing pale malt sweetness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light hoppy resins to finish with tons more pee, faint lemon, hints of grass, tangerine, touches of alcohol. Mostly, though, it’s just glorious piss. madmitch76 (26436) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Could smell the fruits on this as soon as the gravicask tap was released. Palate is slightly soft and very slightly dry. Mild fine carbonation. Fresh skunk which fades quickly. Big juicy passion fruit with tropical fruits underneath. Touch of hop spice and a little lemon in the semi dry finish. Fab! An easy choice for beer of the festival.
Bottle at Chris O’s pre-GBBF shindig, 2013. Cloudy gold pour with a white head. Very nice aroma. Peach, pineapple, mango, orange zest. Crisp citrus explosion on the palate. Lots of peach, orange and pineapple in there. Mouth watering, tasty stuff. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013
Excellent. Best Arbor so far. Citrussy, gently spicy nose with grapefruit, mango, papaya. Flavour follows - lemonadey notes with cardamom, orange zest, lime juice and pine needles. Finishes dry, and achingly, thirst-quenchingly moreish. robbgg (36) - Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2013
Dark golden with herbal and spicy aroma. Pine, mango, citrus and tropical fruits in the flavour over a solid, sweetish malt base, dry finish.
