COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forget clarity, there’s nothing clean cut about this beer. This is a Pale Ale amplified and distorted in a wall of haze and hop feedback. Galaxy, Nelson and Mosaic riffs drift in a warm fuzz of juicy malt and tropical fruit noise. Plug it in, dial it up, crack the can. Its fuzzy ugly and you love it. Originally brewed in collaboration with Sydney’s rock god pizza tossers Frankies.

jmgreenuk (9978) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 15, 2017
Can at the Good Beer Company, Singapore. Poured a murky light brown colour with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is malt, weed grassy citrus, light peppermint hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry, fresh, crisp, malty, light woody hop bitter plate and lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Can, bb 5/18. Very hazy pale straw with a white head that settles to 1 cm. Kind of modest aroma really, of tropical fruit juice - pineapple, oranges, some lime, passionfruit. The very cloudy appearance doesn't mean the beer is soupy or otherwise unclean and the pale malt has some soft presence. Bitterness is moderate. Very good.

It's just hop mania on the nose, with grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, honey, peach, rose water. You name it, it's in there. The orange peel and grapefruit are really prominent on the tongue, with a strong lemony aftertaste. It has a fantastic palate, with great length and an aftertaste that just lasts forever.

330mL can from BeerLove. BB 05/01/18 Pours a deeply hazy/near-opaque mango nectar looking thing with a thick white cream. Hop aromas of passionfruit, mango, orange juice, resiny herbs, slight porridgey cereal quality. Not as creamy or light/fluffy as some - bit more body, bit more resin, bit more bitterness. Dig the hops on the palate - resiny, piney, the sort of inside bit of a passionfruit skin, orange when you bite a bit too far into the pith. Moderate bitterness, slightly juicy finish. Enjoyable - that bitterness gives it a bit of edge.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Great tropical aroma, 5/5 for that! My can was 5.8%. Pale and hazy and very hoppy. More of a double IPA lite taste. Grapefruit, bitter orange and mandarin taste. Very tangy

Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2017
Pours gold with heaps of chunks. Nose shows lychee, peach, tangerine, citrus fruits and clean malt. Malty flavours, a fair bit of sweet syrupy notes, some bready malt. A bit of pine and grapefruit.

L42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Wingman for the can. Cloudy gold beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, dry, good fine carbonation. Thin malts, mildly sweet, something like dextrose in there. Good yellow grapefruit, not that bitter. Touch of grapefruit peel. Light bitterish finish. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (20609) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2017
Can split at L42 thanks to the Wingmane, 18/05/17. Hazed golden orange with an off white cap. Nose is sweet tropical fruit goo, orange pith, papaya, faint diesel strains, citric tinged straw. Taste comprises toasted bread, mango, light apricot tickle, floral bite, pine needle, tangerine, grains. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with balanced hop bitterness. Ok IPA.

The_Osprey (9120) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
May 2017 - Can share at One Canada Square. Big thanks to the Wingman! As ’Garage Project Fuzz Box’, 5.8%. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, foamy off-white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is initially a little odd but settles on passionfruit, boiled sweets, sherbet and mixed citrus. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is mango and sherbet, more passionfruit, a little danky in the finish, straw with a dusty dry finish. Pretty nice. (3.9)

MrTipple (6446) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2017

More zesty citrus fruits, orange peel, some tropical fruits, mango, tangerine, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Nice IPA, well-balanced. Bottle shared at Level 42 tasting - thanks to WingmanWillis!
