Bottle from Stirchley Wines. Pours with minimal head, slightly hazy from fine sediment. Big fruit aromas - although these are tropical and juicy, they aren’t as overpowering as some mango & pineapple-scented beers - more of a rounded fruitiness. This comes through also in the flavour, and the hop elements seem very balanced, allowing some malt flavour through with a hint of herbaceous spiciness on the end. Good mouthfeel - not as one-dimensional as some single hop beers. First time I’ve come across this hop and I’d love to try more beers where it’s used either alone or in a blend. Seems to work well on it’s own though. Would certainly drink this beer again with pleasure.
Caramel, floral, toast, vegemite, basement. Heavy sediment. Nice lasting head. Mid sweet and bitter, well balanced. JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Amber to bronze in color with a taller dark beige head. Fairly light scents of caramel, pale malt and floral hops. Hints of crusty toasted bread. Fairly bitter finish, without much in the way of hops flavors. Lightly herbal and a touch tinny late. 5/11

Draft (at seemingly an old age). A hop I really like to use but this beer doesn’t capture it to me. mr_h (5914) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2015

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Concentrated fruit sweetness, but also bready sweetness. The bitterness here is very easy. Interesting.
