500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grainy malts, strong herbal notes, buttery popcorn and grass. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, strong floral hops, exotic fruitiness, herbs and citrus. Light bodied, soft mouthfeel and low-ish carbonation. Drinkability is good. Overall a nice and soft APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Bow Bar. Golden steady bubbles with a thin cremay head. The nose has peaches and gentle malt. Perhaps some citrus. The taste has honey and orange blossom. Some citrus tang on the end. The palate is light to medium in body and texture. Slightly over carbonated dry finish. Tasty but slightly unbalanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Rehills Ncl. Great grapefruit & orange aroma, sharp bitter palate. Happy character really shines through and is the focal point of the beer. Lingering flavour and texture, this is a cracker.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2012 Slight haze to this bottle, lovely hop aroma which lingers on the tongue. Strong bitterness in the cheeks like a slap from a fish wife.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home after brewery visit. According to brewer, lots of Galaxy & Columbus in this bad boy (I even saw the brew sheet!), not sure where the "only UK grown hops" comes from. Possibly a new recipe? Light orange amber, lacy thin white head. Nice juicy nose, fresh and peachy, slight orange peel, quite "dank" character. Nice juicy sweet citrus up-front, with a big resinous dank hop hit, quite grassy & herbal (definite Galaxy character) but a long, puckering bitter finish. Lovely and hoppy. Soft carbonation. This is excellent.
