WittendenExcellent26 Jan 2013 First time I've come across this Aussie hop. Not as in your face as plain Hophead of old. Wall fruit. Good, but I don't think of this as a session beer.

AndrewAcceptable26 Jan 2013 Bit cold. Bit of diacetyl. Bit of eggy aroma. Hop was bit too grapefruit rind for me. Prefer the original Hophead personally

The George, Aldwych, Central London

Martin the MildmanExcellent19 Jan 2013 This works well, slightly sweeter than the original from the fruity Australian hop. My score 16/20.

The Harp, Charing Cross, Central London

Stephen HarrisExcellent17 Jan 2013 With the hop levels in the regular Hophead having been even further reduced lately, it was good to find this supercharged version, full of Galaxy hops.
