Pop the top off this bottle & the citrus bouquet will sucker punch you in the nose: deep tangerine pulp & squeezed grapefruit. Pours liquid gold with a slight white cap. What a great brew. Not as bitter as you’d like perhaps but that’s just diversity of the style. Will grab more from the LCBO shelves.

Tsekouratos (604) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - APR 12, 2014
On tap at The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Yellow color, clear, with a thin white head. Aromas of lemon and grapefruit. Hoppy taste of pine lemon and grapefruit. Mild aftertaste. Light body with low to medium carbonation.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
500 mL bottle. Hazy yellow with suspended sediment. The nose has strong resin, with a little tropical fruit underneath. The resin fades to the background in the flavour, and the semi-sweet tropical fruit moves boldly to the forefront. Not a tonne of bitterness, but that’s okay, because the flavour is great. Very drinkable.

HogTownHarry (7062) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO (fresh, one hopes). Clear and incredibly bubbly gold with a large and lasting fizzy/foamy white head. Aroma is grass, lemon zest, light floral bitterness and a hint of biscuity slightly sweet grain - pretty decent. Taste - a little bit of dry acidity there, lots of lemon/lemongrass and for the trifecta, lemon zest - nice and refreshing, building alcohol. Light, very nicely carbonated, dry with an acidic zing in the medium finish - simple, but extremely refreshing. Possibly better on keg than cask but I will seek this one out on handpull my next trip to Blighty.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 30, 2014
So after the Jaipur I got to sample this with my learned off-sider, Bartlett. This is a bit more like it we agreed. It had a greater depth of colour, leaning toward orange amber and spicy resinous aromas. There was a bigger body with up front resinous hoppiness and amiable bitterness. There was good warmth from the higher alcohol content and a lengthy finish coupled with greater drinker’s satisfaction. Lovely stuff. More please.
