3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. It was ok. Thats about it. It has a mild hop flavor and not much to the finish. Pretty bland for an APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Massive citrus aroma jumps out of the bottle upon releasing the cap. Overt aromas of pine and resin. Moderate amounts of citrus and stone ground cracker malts. Mostly clear copper with a full off-white head. Bottom of the bottle has a fair amount of trub to muddle the clarity. Flavor leans toward caramel malts. Slight cardboard. On the back of the palate, there is moderate low citrus.

Bottle at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear amber-gold with a foamy white head. Fairly OK amber pale ale with mildly astringent herbs, orange peel, pine. Medium sweetness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes sweet with lightly toasted pale malts. So so.

the dry hopping is almost cheating, as this brew is way more flavorful and hoppy than your average pale ale. good, worth searching out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aromas are mellow caramel and citrus. The pour is slightly hazy, light caramel brown, with a slight effervescence. It’s topped by a soapy orange head which reduces down to a thin, filmy layer with a thin ring and light, random lacing. The taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. The texture is oily thin with a medium / medium light body and a light amount of average buzzy carbonation. Flavors of caramel, nuts, and bitter citrus finish the beer with a light butter and burnt toast aftertaste. It’s very smooth and easy drinking.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The body has a deep orange amber color with a slight haze and is topped off with two fingers of creamy off white foam. This head settles down to a thin cap that makes some nice lacing on the glass. This one is full of big citrus, floral and pine hop notes with just a little sweet malt underneath. Just like the nose its flavor is full of wonderful citrus, grapefruit, pine and topical fruit notes. A light base of bready malt seeks in here and there with a slight caramel sweetness. The hops run from the fount to the finish and bring plenty of hop bitterness that slowly fades off the tongue. The body has a medium feel with soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Great Canadian Beer Festival. Grass, lemon zest and grapefruit; sharply dryhopped. Clean, super bitter. A bit thin -- lacks a good malt base to carry the heavy hops.
