330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy moderately lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and piney, hoppy aroma, herbal and fruity interludes, a touch of apricot, melon and mint, overall rather unspecific flavours, though. Taste is dry, moderately bitter, piney and citrusy hoppy, slightly fruity and minimally herbal, somehow woody. Not fully accessible in a way... drjoeng (1418) - SINGAPORE - SEP 17, 2017
4.8%ABV. Pale ale. AWS9 (746) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2017
Poured out amber. 12ºSRM.
Nose has green papaya and orange and hint of lychee. There are aromas of ripe peach and apricots as well.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is white bread toast, saltines and soda biscuits. Palate also has some juicy body, but this flashes very briefly across the overall tasting ride. Hops are forward with flavors of lemon zest, grapefruit peel, citrus oil and bergamot. Grass, pine needles and resin are also present, especially in the end and in the finish.
Finish is long and bitter with resin and epoxy or superglue.
Overall, very good and kudos, but not going to make The List.
Bottle. Orange citrus nose. Touch of tropical fruit. Very mild bitterness, fruity sweetness. Very easy going down. Perhaps a bit oily, but otherwise not much to criticise. Perhaps lacks a ’wow’ factor, but very well crafted. minutemat (6133) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017
330ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a misty gold, medium white head. Aroma of zesty citrus, grapefruit, floral. Taste is super crisp, fresh with zesty citrus and a bright bitterness. Doesn’t seem the best showcase for this hop, although there is a pleasant underlying fruitiness. Super refreshing.

Bottle from Ales By Mail.Hazy orange brown, reasonable head. Toffee liquorice hop aroma. Caramel grain flavour. Bitter grassy aftertaste. Ok but not as good as pale fire. 6bottlepack (545) - Devon, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2017

Very hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry, good fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, modest sweetness. Floral bitterness and bitter seltzer. Pithy bitterness, getting harsh. Some orange peel. Dry bitter finish. Bitter linger. Dry and bitter and not really getting much from this excellent hop. A disappointment.
330ml Bottle - Hazy light amber. Peach, apricot and melon in the aroma. Hoppy and moderately sweet taste with peach, strawberries and melon detected.
