US Style pale ale. Very distinctive pale ale that we have hopped continuously throughout the boil.

ALLOVATE (2687) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2015
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)

Amber honey gold in colour with small white head. Floral and fruity with a nice orange citrus aroma. Good body, malty sweetness, some lacing, and a nice dry citrus bitter finish.

EdKing (2201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Keg at The Lyric. Clear amber to chestnut brown beer with a large white foam head. Nose is very minerally, pine hop, caramel malt, citrousy, grapefruit. Taste is really flinty and chalky minerals with pine, kind of metallic, and then caramel, malty, citrous, grapefruit. Not really liking the heavy minerals in this. Chalk, flinky and pine kind of killing the other flavours.

TheKernOwl (33) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
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… #
