Martin the MildmanAcceptable28 Apr 2012 The perfect antidote to a bitter mild, a very bitter strong pale bitter. Lots of citrus hop flavours in this with a dry finish. My score 14/20.

DubbelExcellent28 Aug 2009 Sanity reinstated. Still a brutish hop weapon, 3rd barrel of it has mellowed considerably since last week.
DubbelExcellent24 Aug 2009 In better form than last Thursday. Shimmering gold and devastatingly hoppy. This is right on the bitter edge of what my tastebuds can endure. One of the most powerful beers I've had.

DubbelGood20 Aug 2009 Another real hop bomb. Interesting nose and I was quite enjoying my pint before someone pointed out that it smelled a bit cheesy. Began to get hop overload by the end of the pint. Would be interested to try some of the lower ABV beers in the range.

IanExcellent06 Aug 2008 A really hoppy strong gold ale. Soft in mouth. Great peppery English EKG style hops. Wow. The hops, the mouth feel, the lemon curd fruit. Great stunning bitterness.

IanExcellent18 Oct 2007 Gold clear beer. Glorious grapefruit aroma. Good carbonation. Extraordinary hop. Very intense lychees. Very drinkable. Good balance yet still intense hop. Sherbert. Well done, though.
