UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 Poured from bottle, hazy amber with huge white head that settles quickly. Aroma subtly flowery with notes of citrus, banana and hay. Taste is bitter but well balanced. Notes of banana , citrus and bread with a sweet aftertaste. Starts off like a pale ale but finishes like a hefe weisse. Peculiar... Beese (2934) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Draught at The Euston Tap, London on 4 Aug 2012. Poured a very hazy golden colour, with a halo of white head. Aroma of wet grass, floral hop and satsumas. Citrus hop flavour, with some herbal and mineral notes. Finish was bitter resin, pine and straw. Przylus (392) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Jeśli spotkałbym autorów tego piwa, to za użycie sformułowania "West Coast" w nazwie, wyśmiałbym ich w twarz. Barwa złocista, piana średnio pęcherzykowa, niska. Aromat typowego lagera. W smaku oprócz dużego nagazowania, nieprzyjemna goryczka. To piwo nigdy nawet nie stało obok IPA! esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Draught. Murky orange pour, minimal white head. Faint grapefruit aroma, more like acidic berries, slight peaches and floral notes, harsh resins. Hints of raisins. Grainy maltiness, resinous and somewhat harsh bitterness. Some fermentation notes, like perry. Light to medium body, slightly soda-like texture. This was the first pour from the tank and I still wonder if or was OK.

Bottle att home. Pours orange with a huge white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy and a bit spicy with backing biscuits, toast and some caramel. Similar taste with balanced and lasting bitterness. Desverger (11838) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle from BarleyWine, CPH - amber pour with white head. Citrus fruity and light malty aroma and taste, some mandarin, lemon, floral and light grassy, easy drinking, decent overall.

330 mml bottle tasted on the 19/11/2014. Hazy golden colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malts, grain and some lemon. Taste is citrus, fresh and clean but unidimensional, not complex. Medium carbonation and body. Aftertaste is not intense. Next one please! Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Not much of a aroma and a rather damp feeling about it. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Taste is sweet and a bit fresh with some hops, though not overwhelming. Palate is actually pretty nice and it passes through the mouth smoothly. Overall not a very exciting beer and not very tasteful. imdownthepub (14767) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Hazy orange amber with white head. There is an initial fruity sweetness, slight bon-bon hints followed by a herby hoppy note. Allied to this is a citrus, orange hint. Perhaps a little mixed up but pretty reasonable too.

Cask conditioned at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Hazy gold with white head. Big hop flavours going on with this, grapefruit bitterness with lemon pith and sharp gooseberry, full on the palate and very tasty. Lots of carry through, drying. Very good.
