Cloudy amber beer with a thin creamy head. Hop and grapefruit aroma. Taste is very grapefruity and there is a smokey and nutty edge.
Cask at The Font, Chorlton. Reddish dark amber shade. White bubbles. Berry fruit, resin, touch of earthiness and a pronounced juiciness without calling to mind individual fruits. Mouthfeel is light and slick which works in its favour. Quite enjoyable. ManVsBeer (10448) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask @ Sparrow Bier Cafe, Bradford. Darker amber in colour with a creamy head. There’s some pale malts here, but its strength dominates the taste department with a dry malty aftertaste evident. zacgillbanks (5169) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a cloudy amber coloured beer with tropical fruit, pine and orange marmalade flavours followed by a malty, woody and bitter pine finish. Excellent! jamestulloch (4108) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy chestnut body with a medium off-white head. No visible carbonation. Lacing coats the glass. Aroma of filter coffee, salted lime, peach, Earl Grey tea and a hint of smoke. The flavour is very hoppy - pink grapefruit, red apple, cigar and caramel. Lovely bitterness. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A stunning beer. mike_77 (6658) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Clear brown colour. This is a strange one with a rich maltiness and a weird citrusy lemon/lime taste.

Draught schooner. Cloudy deep copper. Smallish off-white head that dissipates quickly leaving a little lacing. Aroma is mild and floral. Flavours similarly floral, some stone fruit, a little toffee, grapefruit. A decent malt backbone and a robust bitter finish. Pretty good. Beese (2733) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014

Bottle courtesy of dad consumed at home Tuesday 18th March 2014 Pours amber with a good clarity and a filmy white head there was almost certainly a bigger head but I sort of got stuck into it a bit swiftly. Soft in mouth but a huge bittersweet flavour explosion of citrussy hops. I rattled this down me in no time, so quick that my rating is a bit crap. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6
