3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery. Fresh bottle with a bottle date of 9/20/15. Hazy straw color with thin lasting head in a snifter. Aroma is a good dose of pine with traces of citrus and wood.
Flavor has substantial pine throughout, hints of tangerine, the sip with a nice balanced malt bill. Bitterness is grassy and lingers slightly. The overall mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. The citrus and pine are balanced well together, super easy to drink and I killed 22 oz. with ease.

Color is extra pale. Pouring a light cloudy yellow with a white sticky head. Tastes soapy and slightly piney leaving a bitter finish. Very well balanced and super crushable. Had a bomber pour at home. Excellent pale ale

Pale yellow, a bit hazy body with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma, with grass and pine notes. Very smooth taste, it’s a little bit sweet with the bitterness lingering in the background. Smooth mouthfeel, not a lot of carbonation. Very nice overall.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
65cl bottle, served in tulip. Pours golden with small/medium white head. Some lacing. Aromas of toffee, tropical fruits and pine. In contrast, the flavour has a lot of pine with citrusy notes. Almost no sweetness...maybe some caramel but that’s all. The aftertaste is moderately bitter and dry, very balanced. Light body, very good carbonation. Definitely the kind of APA I like (and sure a lot of people do). It is not perfect because of small details, well done.

Nothing wrong. It is a good a good pale ale; I dare say refreshing in a sense. Is it something to get excited about ? Not really. Too expensive to be a daily drinker. Nice 22oz bottle.

Bottle. Turner’s, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Bubbles and a film of lasting, white head. Fairly sweet, slightly fusty malts. Soft toffee. Mandarin orange hop. Some cracker biscuit. Faint pine notes. Taste is light bitter. Hint of mineral dryness. Light, citric tang. Clean, lively palate. Juicy bitterness builds, and lingers on the finish. Quaffable.
