3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drought: Pours to a medium yellow, slightly cloudy body with a small-medium white head. Aroma is sweet hops, pineapple, candy, and a lot of fruit - enough so that I’m unclear whether the extreme fruitiness is from fruity hops or whether there were temperature issues with the fermentation and/or with shipping the keg. Flavor is sticky sweet hops, initially sweet pineapple, fruit, and then more extremely bitter hops in the flavor that end with grassy hop notes. Medium bodied, medium carbonated.
Golden-amber pour, clear but not transparent. It has a nice head, tall, soft and with excellent retention, plus plenty of lacing. The smell is quite promising - honey, flowers, resinous hops and dankness. The taste is a bit different than what I expected - super fucking malty and sweet up front, a bit like a watered down barley wine, followed by nice resinous hop notes, smokiness and saltiness. Salty and sweet aftertaste, medium body and a nice warmth due to the alcohol make this a good winter beer. teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 5, 2015
Keg at CBC Clapham, Craft 100, London. Unclear orange medium off-white head. Aroma is juicy fruity and resiny. Taste has mango, resin, citrus peel and caramel. Light booze. Good one JohnRMurdoch (5142) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2015
330ml bottle from Drygate. Hazy amber, big foamy head. Tropical fruit & grain aroma. Cats pee flavour. Sour aftertaste. Very disappointed with this one. Lowenbrau (4798) - Asturias, SPAIN - JAN 4, 2015

In short: earthy bitter ale.
Pours hazy golden with nice white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Fruity, peachy, tropical fruit, citrusy aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, earthy, some resins, fruity, high bitterness, ends dry. Robust beer. Enjoyable.
brilliant orange with a nice off white head
aroma has clean citrus hops with lots of more spicy grassy flavour which make it pretty dense...
full sweet bitter body with a long citric finish

Bottle. Delicious aroma of fruity hops. Crispy and slightly sharp taste of american hops. Some citra and grape. Has a note of malt at first, but the hops take over very fast. Very bitter aftertaste. Good beer. Hermod (8508) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Tap @ sbwf14. Hazy golden color, thin white head. Tropical fruity nose, pineapples, citrus. Flavor has wood, blood orange, hops, strong herbalness. Lacks the smoothness I have grown to like. Very bitter. jookos (7155) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Yellow hazy. Fruity caramels, tropicals, grapefruit, all sort of nice soft mellow though. Bitter hoppy. Some green hops, butterscotch caramels. Finishes a bit hard and hot.
