330ml bottle. Milky, orangey golden colour with average, thick, fluffy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and tropical fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of passion fruit, mango, grapefruit, orange, orange zest, marmalade, hints of peach and apricot. Taste is citrusy and tropical fruity hoppy, slightly piny, moderately bitter, slightly sweet, biscuity malty basis, (in comparison to the aroma) minimally diluted notes of passion fruit, mango, orange, grapefruit, some marmalade, hints of peach and apricot, minimally grassy, waxy and chalky overtones; soft palate, gentle carbonation. Wonderful.

Iphonephan (7070) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2014
From a 50 ml bottle purchased in Ocracoke NC. Pours a cloudy gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of lemon and orange with floral notes. Bitter finish. This is a fine pale ale.

AshtonMcCobb (6757) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
On cask at the Beer Hall. Appearance - golden with a slight haze and a nice head. Nose - intense mango and grapefruit. Taste - loads more grapefruit with a touch of that sweet mango. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - the finish is almost too dry but still retains decent balance.

berkshirejohn (6585) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. Pale amber with a thin white head; sweet tropical fruit aroma; full of fruity flavours, clemantine and satsuma to start, then becoming more grapefruity, and with a strong, sharp, cirusy bitterness; and a lingering finish. A really good Pacific style IPA.

3.5
Holmen1 (6115) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2015
Flaske delt ombord på Fridtjofen, RBHD-treff aug-15: uklar strågul med hvitt skum. Innbydende, frisk aroma av New Zealand-humler (stikkelsbær, mango, aprikosmarmelade mm). Nydelig, fruktig smak, balansert og med middels bitter ettersmak. Vi sukker fornøyd, en betimelig opptur.

Cybercat (5959) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a fairly thick ivory head. Aroma has a tempting tone of fresh hops, with hints of malt and tropical fruit. Hops really come out in the flavor, riding undertones of malt and sweet tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is smooth, reasonably firm, not very fizzy, leaving a mango and hoppy finish. A toast to the Kiwis!

3.5
minutemat (5784) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Aroma is pine pot pourri crossed with a fresh flowery summer meadow.. lots of citrus & pine with a resinous aftertaste.. not too full on mind, but a very fresh juicy beer nonetheless.

3.5
mr_h (5714) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Cask by handpump at Counting House, Glasgow - clear golden ale, bubbly white head, fruity hop aroma, grapefruit flavour, good body, good temperature, strong citrus aftertaste
