3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Festival. Straw coloured with a loose white head; aroma od pineapple and other tropical fruit; the tropical fruit flavours continue in the mouth, followed by a sweet grapefruit bitterness; then a dry and sustained bitter fruitiness. Not as explosive as I anticipated, but an solid IPA nevertheless.
Pours cloudy copper colour with small head. Citrussy hop aroma and a nicely balanced hoppy flavour. Very easy drinking. richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Pours golden amber with a weak head. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with a spicy, peppery almost herbal edge. Flavour doesn’t quite live up to the aroma with a slightly vegetal bitterness dominating, still pleasant though harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013

Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Hazy gold with slight head. Certainly not the impact I was expecting, there is a flowery hop note on a thin body also a touch of pear drops and alcohol, but it didn’t seem particularly balanced or full. It’s ok but nothing spectacular. yespr (45508) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2012
From cask at Egham 13. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruity, peachy. Bitter, fruity, peachy to grapefruity hoppy. Smooth fruity and crisp bitter into a smooth fruity finish. Scopey (14768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Fest. It pours hazy amber with small white head. The nose is dough, farmyard, light spice, freshly baked farmhouse bread and some tropical fruit. The taste is dough, spice, light sweetness, bread, lemon, grapefruit and pear with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. I wasn’t blown away by it, but it’s a solid beer nonetheless.
