Bottle Rehills, Newcastle. Superb big aroma of grapefruit and gooseberry, but its the flavour that really makes this beer. Stunning, sharp bitterness, with loads of marmalade orange flavours, ther’s even some raaspberry (I think) lurking in the background. Great dry finish that lasts forever and leaves the throat tingling. Great beer.

Pours semi translucent, dark amber colour, with a slight white head. Citrus tones, predominantly lemon, with a citric bitter aftertaste. Refreshing and light, American Pale Ale. 5% :-)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A golden amber coloured beer with a thick white head. A potent hoppy aroma, piney, grassy, and loads of pithy grapefruit, orange and lime fruits. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, a huge hop flavour, piney, grassy and woody, then a mouth puckering bitter citrus fruit flavour, again, grapefruit, orange and lime. The finish does have a certain smoother malt element to it that tempers the bitterness.

a very well made pale ale, very drinkable. Nice balance of malt and hop with nice fruity after taste. Was expecting a little bit more of an attack on the senses, so slightly disappointed, well made never the less, and well worth a try.
