Pours clear orange , big off white head. Aroma is odd turpentiny, off, but maybe that is agave? Flavor is bitter fruit, I think that is agave, like a more tropical grapefruit. Not sure what I think of this taste. Mouthfeel is well carbonare, and medium, almost heavy. mouth puckering. More sweet later. hmm.

August 2017 - Cask, gravity dispense, at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'O'Connor El Guapo'. Amber orange, translucent, still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is resinous, sugary, syrup and orange blossom. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sugary, syrupy sugars, resinous and finishes with dusty and dental rinse notes. A bit weird but OK.

Sweet tropical fruits, overripe mango, bitter orange, orange peel. Slightly hazy, dark gold, small, frothy, white head. Medium sweet. More bittersweet citrus fruits, orange, marmalade, tropical fruits, soft carbonation, full bodied, alcohol in the finish. Decent IIPA, bit too boozy, lacks balance.

Cask at GBBF. It pours clear amber with a bubbly white head. The is sweet, juicy, peach, tangerine, grapefruut, marmalade and candied peel. The taste is dry, raw bitterness, earthy, pine, resin, grapefruit, some cheddar, toasty grain and alcohol sting through the finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. More I have it the cheesier it gets. Nice aroma anyhow. OK.
