3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. Brilliant, orange amber on first pour. Hazed on second. Head is a plume of soapy, white suds Piney, resinous, spicy and herbaceous, whole hop nose inches stinging nettles, vine clippings, camphor, sap resin, lemon balm and pandan. Full on aroma for a modest strength ale. Quite piney and dry with a backbone of dusty malts and dried herbs on the palate. Creamy and foamy in feel with a moderate to light body. Camphorous and lasting, peaking bitterness rolls in every sip. Overall hogely resinous with a plump, hoppy aftertaste. Low esters, low fruit restrained to grapefruit notes and little else. Madly sessionable stuff. (50cL, BB 29/09/15, Luckies Liquor)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty yeasty – wee bit like La Chouffe, say, in colour and clarity - but thoroughly West Coast/transatlantic in flavour.
Nose: Really pleasant orange/peach/melon, slight pine.
Body: easy-drinking, orange/caramel/peachy,
Finish: a hop kick at end and (med-?)long finish.
Overall: Nicely American, nicely mild APA; altogether now: #All the lad(d)ies / Who love “Independence” / Throw ya handz up at meee… #
