Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to our man licking Aussie bud - Josh for this one. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Spicy floralness. Hops are juicy orange - lemon with a little floralness. Mild mint. Light citric bitter finish brings seltzer. Comes together well but Enigma hops remain just that, need try then in a single hop IPA.
Bottle split at Bruce’s Pad, thanks to Josh (and Bruce), 04/11/14.
Hazed orange amber with moderate a off white swirl and edgeing.
Nose is treacle toffee, citric peel, light smoke, rye bread, burnt toffee fumes.
Taste comprises citric peel, light spice, pine notes, mandarin, rye notes, tangerine, light mineral notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Solid rye offering. Leighton (23093) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle shared in London - huge thanks to Mr. Mane Liquor! Pours mostly clear gold with a foamy white head. Nice citrusy aroma with nips of grains, orange rind, pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with biscuity malts, some grain husk, grass, dried honey, more rind. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with further biscuits and grains, dry citrus fruits. Very nice. Easy drinking. Scopey (16537) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to Manny & Bruce. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small head. The nose is sweet mandarin, tangerine, sherbet, varnish, light spice and candy. The taste is bitter, spicy, piney, resin, varnish, grapefruit, lemon peel, sherbet, bread and mild astringency with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crazy good label and sexy manney collaborator. Good stuff.

A few weeks unnoticed in the back of the fridge has done this one no harm. A surprising effort from Bootleg and a beer I think epitomises what the good folk at Mane actually stand for. But wow this was still a bitter bitch!FknClownshoes (26) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2014
Into a chalice at just on cool it settles with a mist of suspended proteins amongst its deep orange body. Not too much life is visible. Head has oomph to begin with but fades to but a ring of white on the meniscus. Plump and deeply fruity nose, quite sweet and candyish hinting at pale stone-fruit, caramelised pineapple and apricot nectar - the stuff my mum used on her chicken back in the day! There is an underlying essence of pine resin to it along with a much needed spice from that rye. Quite rounded, plump, juicy fruity and then sherrrbang!, hits that wall of hops. Raspy, herbaceous and grassy with a peppery edge I hope is the meagre rye sticking up for itself. The fruit of nose is rife across the palate softening the blow somewhat. There is also a lot of lychee coming through. This needs more alcohol to quieten it down I think. Hits well above its weight. Medium bodied with an oily, sappy backend. Lightly nutty deep underneath with a touch of toasted malt. Sweetness expressed to the olfactories has no place on the palate. It’s a beauty, even if one was enough. This is assertive and bountiful in aroma and flavour. A great pale ale and homage to this new age hop!!! (33cL, no date stamp, Mane Liquor, Belmont)
Golden amber in colour, dense white head.
Smells like stone fruit, toasty caramel and a hint of spice. Slight earthiness perhaps from the rye malts.
Delicious stonefruit hop flavours pairs nicely with the spice going on. Bitter, but the caramel maltiness from the rye brings it back. Very unique flavour profile (Enigma hops) it’s fruity but still spicey.
Medium in body, kind of sticky with medium carbonation. Bitter finish.
Packs a hoppy punch; after drinking this as a session beer for a week, all other beer tastes bland and malty. It is unique and bold, bitter and fruity. Appeals to all my senses, even with the sweet label. Great brew.

Looks..light golden amber, sml head.
Smells..floral and pungent ripe stonefruits, hint of spice and rye.
Tastes..big stonefruit and flowery hops, toasty rye grains, the enormous bitterness lingers with rye notes continuing. iDig. SirBruceWillis (10) - BANGLADESH - OCT 2, 2014
Beat that ugly reptilian bastard in an arm wrestle once. Asshole cut me off on the tarmac chasing some fucking plane. Felt a slight burning sensation between my toes, apparently the fuckwit can breathe fire. Cute. fletchfighters (1623) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2014
Thanks to Mane Liquor for the bottle
Bad ads label
Orange amber color. White head that falls to a collar.
Nose is stone fruit, rye and grain. Good amount of spice to this, though does overshadow the beer a bit.
Quite frankly biter and spicy. Spiced rye and stone fruit. Highly aggressive in the bitterness and the spice. The body underneath is nice but needs to be a bit more balanced as the rye all but destroys the beer.
Oil, resin, spice body. A bit rough to drink but it does have Godzilla on the label so it does it’s job nicely.
Massive hop and spice bomb. Not a session beer at all but does the job nicely.
