Looks a treat.Poured a mahogany amber with a nice dense head. A bit over carbonated. Floral and citrus on the nose, but muted. In the mouth ii is med to full bodied with a light to medium hop bite. A bit subdued for what they are aiming for. Solid.

Pours a nice copper colour. Generous taste of grapefruit and nice and malty from start to finish. Wonderful finish with even a splash of orange tang at end. Very much in American style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden copper with a thin white head. Strong citrus/grapefruit aroma that suggests a sweet finish. Moderate malt backbone with high hop usage. The hop choice is rather mild in.flavour though so it is not overpowering. Pine, citrus and grapefruit flavours match the sweet malt. Very sessionable

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ML bottle
Orange amber color, light tan head, good retention to the head. Good looking in the glass.
Nose is bread, orange, caramel, and chalk. Orange is more orange blossom than peel.
Taste is very chalky. Decent orange blossom but a lot of chalk to offset it. Bitterness is even chalky. Finishes clean, with some orange and grapefruit bitterness but still a lot of chalk. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation.
Another pale Ale

Bottle. Good malt profile with solid bitterness. The bottle was a bit old so I’m sure the aroma is meant to be a little stronger, but overall it was rather pleasant

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very Summery in appearance; a radiant orange gold with a tight, thin layer of foam atop that holds. Heady, spicy, pine-needle dominated nose; resinous with a lot of damp, green herbs coming through. Generously hopped and dominatingly so. The body is quite light, malt profile low and fruit esters restrained. Bold bitterness to the finish that lasts. Grassy, weedy and herbaceous with a lingering note of pine and nettles. Overall dry, with a hint of rose petals. I dig it for its raw hopping, and it is actually a very sessionable number. Not too bad a beer. Would love to try it on draught for a comparison. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 330mL BB July 2015
Pale orange-gold body, fluffy white head.
Subdued aroma; light toasty malts, orangey, grassy, slightly woody hops.
Lifted carbonation, medium-full body.
Toasty, biscuity malt paves the way for citrus, subtle passionfruit, wood sap-like hops. Moderate bitterness on satisfying finish.
Quite good, relatively simple, but effective.
