Tasting @ Cellarbrations Carlisle Carpark Brewday.
The pick of the day and one of the first ales off the list. Yellow gold and misty. Head holds well - love to see it on draught in Boulder. Bright, fresh hops on the nose. A musk of rose scented perfume preludes notes of ripe peach and passionfruit, lemongrass, vineclippings and a murmur of grain. Big, bold hops dominate the palate too. With the malt taking subs on the side this offers up notes of passionfruit, honeydew, peach and tart grapefruit that grip all corners of the palate. The rye adding just a touch of spice. Firm and assertively bitter on the peak, quenching, fresh and lively in the finish with lasting bursts of fruit esters. A beer that just needs to be drunk. Hopefully not a one off fluke. Lovely on the day. Very well done!!
Pours cloudy and orange. Nice but faint citrus aroma. Great hop flavour that os certainly not overpowering. Maybe the Gibb River water in there. Bit of bitter on the finish.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Bright orange pour with a small, firm white head which lasts the duration.A touch over carbonated on pour. Nose shows sweet lemon tart, touch bready, light spice. Nice and rounded. Taste is light citric fruits, heavy on lemon, and light spice. Very easy going, a little too much carbonation for my liking though. Very balanced, sessionable as they come jonnyguns (1106) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle from Mane liquor. Pours a very light straw golden. Aromas of rye and some hops. Taste is quite light, tastes a bit like a watered down version of feral white. Very sessionable.
