NOTE: Originally made in the style of an American Pale Ale, but using only UK grown hops and malt. Now includes New World Hops but the date of the switch is unknown.

50cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. Great to see the extended range now on offer at M&S. This is similar to the Pennine Pale Ale, but packs more punch. Itís a pale amber pour with a billowing white head; limey citrus aroma; prickly in the mouth, with grapefruit and lime flavours and a grainy body; and a grapefruit bitterness to finish. Another good beer from Allendale.

Pints at The Cumberland Arms, Newcastle. Bright gold with a thick white head. Citric aroma. Lightly floral with grapefruity citrus and sauvignon flavours. Slightly oily mouthfeel, astringency in the finish. A few notches than the APA itís replacing, Mal and I called in for one, and stayed for three!.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 I?m quite shocked at how good this is! I last had it a couple of years ago, and noted that it was dry with "dusty, english" hops. Now it?s fully tropical, and a perfect flavorful, hoppy pale ale. Its quite sweet and succulent, very pale. (Can?t believe it?s 77 IBU though, more like 40). Reminded me of Thornbridge Kipling.
