Hazy amber, almost nonexistent head. Little aroma to speak of, mildly zesty I suppose. Flavour is as youd expect for a well-hopped American style pale ale, lots of citrus, some tropical fruit, pine, etc. Not complex or innovative but still right up my street.

jmgreenuk (8015) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is fresh grassy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big grassy Citra nettle hop palate and a big peppermint bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Pudding (230) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
500ml. Poured clear gold, with thick, lasting head. Aroma is strong, tropical fruit. Taste is strong hop. Palate is medium body, lengthy mouthfeel. Overall: Strongly-flavoured, perhaps over-hopped.

Clean, crisp, tropical and great balance. Great balance. Can drink an awful lot of this. A fantastic hop bomb. Really great. Cask, Manchester ale festival. I would like to see this on keg

BlackHaddock (6561) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
10th June 2014: hand-pulled pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates. Very pale gold body with a full white head. Floral hop nose with a mildly citrus note. The taste was hop bitter with a dry finish and aftertaste. Not really my thing but it was refreshing and clean tasting, if lacking in a maltier balance sort of way.

Garrold (4515) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, straw colour. Thick, fluffy, lasting, white head. Good looking beer. Lemon. Lime. Digestive biscuit. Light, herbal, floral honey thing going on. Taste is more of the floral thing. Like eating a rose petal. Bit tinny, really. Palate is clean and lively, though. Finish is dry, and light bitter. Found this a bit odd.

leaparsons (10054) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are grapefruit and spritzy lemon with base biscuit. Tinned pineapple juice with yeasty and floral notes. Flavours are lightly bitter grapefruit with lemony yeast. Some pine with jammy fruit. A decent hoppy brew.

Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Mild minerals. Smooth and semi sweet airy malt. Nice lemon - lime hops with a touch of pine. Unfortunately skewed by the old Mallinsons soap. Light finish with more sweet pine. Could have been very good indeed without the soap.

beervis (243) - Taylors Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle conditioned. Cloudy golden pour with thick white head, tropical fruit hop aroma. Spicy bitter hop flavours with a sharp sweetness. Really rather good.

imdownthepub (13563) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival 13. Gold with white head. This was quite a lively beer, still in great condition on the third day of the festival. Good, hoppy grapefruit notes along with lemon peel and bitterness. Lengthy on the palate. Very good.
