A sharp delicious APA that hit the spot on a thirsty mouth. While chatting with a friend, I felt parched and it really did the trick.

Towey1989 (250) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear straw colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, peach, grain and grassy, floral hops. Taste of grain, citrusy lemon, orange and grapefruit plus grassy and peppery hops, good bitterness. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, citrus bitterness in the finish. Hoppy but quite plain for an IPA. Ok.

MrBlueSky93 (275) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Looks like an IPA, tastes like an IPA, nothing wheaty about it for me. Pours Golden Orange with single finger white head, very clear, medium to high carbonation. Aroma of orange, lemon, grapefruit, light malts. Initial taste of biscuit malt, then some breadiness, caramel, hoppy lemon, orange, grapefruit then some mango, peach, pineapple in there. Light banana. Flavoursome!

RichardW (1636) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Floral light lemon aroma combining with a faint banana wheatiness, refreshing zingy palate and a lovely light biscuit finish. This is a really good combination of styles. Looks great too, pouring a sparkling clear gold colour, with a foamy white head.

Taste is lightly bitter and crispy, with more notes of violets, grains, hay, mango and peaches, bergamot, citrus peel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, perfect for the style and really tasty
