COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A great aroma and powerful upfront hoppy bitterness give way to an explosion of citrus and pine flavours. A full on hop attack not for the faint hearted!

Pale orange. A touch of weird chemical in the aroma. Nice malts, but a bit popcorny. Flattish palate. A boring sweet pale bitter.
