Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cask at The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.60/pint. Pours a clear mid-amber with a thin, off-white head. The nose is light but still packs a tropical fruity punch. The taste is chock-full of fruity hops, with passion fruit, orange and even peach all detectable. There’s a real underlying dryness that becomes astringency on a long finish. It really tastes its full 5.7%. On the whole good flavours but a little too boozy.

Parmenion777 (275) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
Clear golden amber colour with a small thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, grassy hops, citrus and a touch of pine. Some lacing, toffee malty sweetness, some citrus and piney hoppy bitterness combine in a dry bitter finish.

Light body, medium carbonation. Grass, herbs, pine and grapefruit in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. Good PA

wheresthepath (2315) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading. Glowing crystal-clear amber with a thin white head. Tropical notes up front, a friendly warming caramel middle then pine in the mildly bitter finish. A little too much Cascade for my personal preference by the finish, but there’s no denying that this is a very tasty and well-balanced brew and well worthy of it’s high score on this site. Had it just after the very good and quite similar Hilden Mill Street, and this was just a little step ahead on all counts.
