Scopey (15857) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2017
Bottle at LKS. Cheers Adrian. It pours crazy turbid dirty blonde with a small white head. The aroma is sweet, oily, juicy, brioche, candy, almond biscotti, marzipan, mango and peach. The taste is soft, sweet, oily, sugary, earthy, warming alcohol, mango, ice cream, fruit smoothie, bit of spice, warming alcohol and oily action with a slick finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Intense, maybe a bit too raw. Decent,

RichTheVillan (8298) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017

3.8
LazyPyro (1664) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a very dirty brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit, sweet malt, getting some butterscotch but it's not that bad. Taste is the same, sweet tropical fruits, bready malt, fruit salad, hint of butterscotch. Medium body, average carbonation, not the most pleasant of bitterness at the end, but it's drinkable at least.

Feared I'd got a bad bottle after seeing the disgusting pour but it honestly wasn't bad at all, but felt it could have been so much better.

minutemat (6125) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Keg @ Tilt. Pours hazy gold, small white head. Aroma bears some hoppy exotic fruit notes. Drinks extremely light and fresh for a DIPA, reminiscent perhaps of a good Cloudwater IPA, with the right amount of subtle juiciness and shining exotic elements. Great DIPA.

3.6
Beerhunter111 (22951) - P´Castle, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
33cl bottle at Chris & Ruth´s House. A hazy golden beer with a small white head. Aroma of fruity hops, not too bitter, fresh. Taste of mild grassy and fruity hops, some strawberries, nice!
