can from The Bottle Shop London and drunk at home. Hazy gold lasting white head. Big fresh pink grapefruit aroma. A little malt backbone but then a big hoppy leafy finish. Big and fresh huge hop. I mean it’s a lovely big wonderful APA, with some caramel. Excellent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at ChrisO’s Pre-Christmas Tasting. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, fresh, stone fruits, apricot, peach, stewed orange, tangerine, honeysuckle and some light herbal notes. The taste is bitter, earthy, orange peel, tangerine, pity, zesty citrus, floral notes and some herbal character on the back end. Medium body and average carbonation. There is a dull herbal note that puts me off a bit. Overall decent enough.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a kind of murky, bright orange appearance with a lastin off white head. Aroma is really nice, lots of tangerine, mango, tropical fruits, and some spicy hops. A little bit bready flavor and moderately high bitterness, but tons of delicious tropical fruity notes, especially mango. Somewhat bitter finish. Fairly well balanced. Nice brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Bottled 01/31/2014. (El Cerrito Liquors) Corona, CA.
This is not exactly fresh bottle but... let's see. Clear golden colour with a tiny white ring.
The aroma is caramel sweetness, fruity hops and mild bitterness. Passable.
The flavour is fruity hops, mild bitterness, earthy notes and some maltiness. Doesn't taste that fresh. What a shame. But it's drinkable.
