4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle [from trade with minutemat] @ home. Lightly hazy orange color, medium sized off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy. Taste is light to moderately malty, again very fruity, grapefruit, hops, fruit hops and nicely bitter. Medium body, medium carbonation, great balance. Lovely easy drinkable hoppy pale ale. Maybe it’s just because I’m in a good mood but I really really like this beer.

Bottle. Hazy gold with an off white foam. Aromas are woody oak barrel with yeast and pithy grapefruit. Base grain with spiced oranges and melon. Leafy with minerals. Flavours are oranges and lemon with bitter grapefruit and low woody pine. Sudsy with spritzy yeast and tinned pineapple juice. Clean and grassy with a bitter finish. Very Arbor. Pretty good.

Me ha encantado esta cerveza. Es una peazo de bebida refrescante, bebible y muy alta calidad. Olor a resina de pino, sabor con fondo amargo, albaricoque, melocotón pero no es dulce, con un fondo seco. Gran cerveza y muy repetible.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Bow Bar.
Appearance - golden with a decent head.
Nose - citrus probably oranges.
Taste - moee orange but a little sweet if I’m being honest.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that is disappointing as it’s not dry enough.
Overall - great except for the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted this in the Bon Accord, Glasgow in August 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque pale tawny in colour with a thin white head. Strong and sweet aroma of Del Monte tropical fruit salad wafting long in the nose. Thick resiny mouthfeel and very poor lacing. Mixed malt base gives a strong fruit malt loaf background with strong fruit notes of lychees, mango and white peach. Slight prickle of floral hops combine well with the fruity malt in the long aftertaste. Malty finish is long and fruity with no astringency detected. Sweet warming golden syrup notes are also present. An excellent IPA and well recommended.

Cask pint. Copper colour. Spruce, pine, and grapefruit in the aroma - fairly muted. Taste gives light caramel, pine resin, grapefruit and light spicy notes. Thin mouthfeel. Lingering grapefruit and pine. Quite a nice little hop kick to this, pretty good.
