Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Soft airy malt. Nice hops - fresh orange, orange peel with a little grapefruit and floral sweetness. Turns medium bitter with tropical fruits making an appearance. Finishes light with a long bitter linger. Nicely put together.
Bottle shared in London - picked up in a trade. Pours clear, rich gold with a frothy, off-white head. The nose has some rich citrus, bready pale malts, melon. Medium sweet flavor, further pale and bready malts, light sun-kissed grass, melon, some rindy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Finishes with some dirty grass, orange rind, mellow sweetness. Pretty nice. Beerhunter111 (20482) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014

Bottle massive thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy golden with a medium off-white head. The fresh, pine, brioche, orange sponge cake, grassy edge, earth and marmalade. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, grapefruit, soap, bready, resin, mild astringency and pine needles with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, bitter and very drinkable. Good hop burp. Erzengel (8763) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
Many thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing! Smooth-mild, very intense hoppy. Maly body, fresh and smooth. Easy to drink an fruity. The aftertaste is smooth, mild. Not too bitter. Floral and smooth. Citrus and pine. Not too deep, but still great. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. Golden pour with white head. Spice, herbal and grassy hop aromas. Flavor is grassy and herbal but also malty. PhillyCraft (7229) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle split with Brian, pours clearish copper, aromas of fruit, caramel, hops, skunks, and farts. taste is bitter and aggressiveness as far as hops go. Back of throat. Wish they didn’t clear it out so much. Still nice flavor but kills your buzz slightly. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22. oz. bottle. It pours a rather hazy orange color with an off white head. The aroma has some juicy hops, tangerine and melon rind with a touch of apple cider that’s a bit off putting. The flavor is ok, with some dank, piney hops, melon rind and intense piney bitterness in the finish. The flavor relies too much on bitterness for me and lacks the explosive aroma I like in this style. Not too bad, but disappointing.
