First couple swallows are actually quite nice, refreshing. Shortly thereafter it transforms into a lite beer with some sort of horrible stale fruit taste. Might be best if shotgun'd? profile - August 27, 2014

Thought this beer lacked the aspect it was named for, bitter. Step above a light beer and a very average surly product

Has a good amount of floral and a strong sense of marmalade. Incredibly delicious. Big fan.

Nice and sessionable. Not as hoppy as Furious.

Weekly Pint: (English-style bitter; 4% abv) Pale copper with a floral smell and flavors of toast and orange peel, this would be great with grilled burgers.

The aroma is there, the bitter hop flavor is there, but there seems to be little body behind the initial bitterness. It's a little thin.
