Thrown away in a vortex of bitterness. Unbalanced and explosive without focus on harmony. Cool if you search for hoppy powers.

Fin (10042) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge, Birmingham, Friday 19th June 2015 consumed at home Sunday 21st June (Summer Solstice) Warm gold in colour with a filmy white head, slight haze otherwise pretty good clarity. A tropical edge to the nose, also tropical tasting with a little pineapple and mango in the mouth, not overly tropical mind, a jolly good beer but easily bettered in my opinion. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
