33cl bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 28-11-2014.
In short: harsh citrusy ale.
Pours hazy deep gold with nice frothy off white head. Long head retention, some lacing. Cirusy and fruity aromas, some oxidation ones. Medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Some harsh mouthfeel due to overcarbonation, not so fresh flavours, citrusy and fruity ones, mild bitterness.

355ml bottle at the Tipping Point Brewing Co on Wyndham Street in Hong Kong. Poured into a tulip glass. Nice amber colour, a little cloudy, with a medium sized head. Hoppy aroma, with floral pine and citrus notes. Medium carbonation. Taste of hops and oranges, some malt with a little grapefruit and lemon. A nice pale ale.

This beer pours nicely and has a large head. It's slightly cloudy. It has a mild citrus aroma with malt backing. Tastes slightly of wine? Overall not too bad.

"orange peel abounds in the nose and flavor which is nice but by the end, a little one dimensional. not much else going on save for the traditional malt balance. not bad though.

Típica pale, molt caracter de malta però molt ben equilibrada amb els llúpols que li donen un toc cítric.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with decent head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet grapefruit, lemon zest and a faint hint of pine needles. The flavour is sweet but the bitterness intrudes on what should be an easy drinking beer. Mouthfeel is lacking a little. Very enjoyable but not sessionable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rather hazy sort of orange gold body to this one, holds a firm white head.
Moderate aroma; honeyed malts, hoppy notes of citrus, grassy and lychee.
Medium-full bodied, smooth somewhat creamy texture, subdued carbonation.
Lightly toasted malt character on the body with notes of floral honey, hop notes of lemon rind & cut grass with moderate bitterness & lingering minerality.
Not bad, lacking a bit of punch.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a light copper with a nice cloudy apearance.
Aroma. sweet aroma of citrus.
Taste. Straight i can taste grapefruit and pine needles, with the latter dominating with some nice watermelon sweetness finishing the beer off.
Overall. Quite a good beer, the normal price point in my country however is what will stop me from buying it again, certainly worth a few if a good special comes up.
