Grain with pineapple and mango on the nose. Very juicy, bags of crisp flavour with hops, peach melba, fruit, and more grain. Pleasantly syrupy. What more can you say about this absolutely legendary brewery - complete dons! Delicious. Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Kernel. It pours clear gold with a medium white head. The nose is sweet tangerine, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, sponge cake and muffin. The taste bitter-sweet, sweet orange, juicy tropical fruit, tinned pineapple, peppery edge, touch of alcohol warmth and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Fruity, well balanced and very drinkable. Rather delicious stuff. McNeillR (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Cloudy Sunset gradient, mostly lasting neat bubbly off-white cap. Sumptuous sherberty nose of foil fresh hops, deep scoops of passion fruit and that well expensive Tropicana Sanguinello - no cheap citrus/orange here. Joyous balance of peppery tickle carbonation and oily drained fruit juice tinned syrup tinny edge on the mouthfeel. This cages in a flapping amount of bitterness throughout, chained to a malty pole. The ABV burn peeks out a little at the right moment but there wasn’t much room left on the palate for much more than a Simcoe sweet linger masking the bitter. Would love to have seen the difference in this just two weeks ago! DanielBrown (4567) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
Bottled 04.06.13 - Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of floral hops, exotic fruits, biscuity malts and juicy notes. Taste is hoppy, juicy and bitter with loads of floral notes, exotic fruits and hints of biscuity malts. Finish is juicy, fruity and hoppy with some warming alcohol and some stuffy notes. Nice, tasty, but slightly unbalanced IPA.
