tiong (5000) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Cask @ Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2013

Pours clear dark orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of grassy hops, hints of malts and fruits. Taste is smooth with hints of grassy hops, grapefruit, lemon and fruity notes. Finish is slightly hoppy with hints of lemon, sweetness and fruits. Okay, quite balanced and hoppy APA.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 28th April 2015. Good looking deep amber body with enough hops to float a Battleship. I like West Coast style APA’s and this had just enough bitterness to give it that sort of taste, too hoppy for some I’m sure, but it worked for me.

AshtonMcCobb (4067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance - amber with a lovely fluffy head. Nose - red fruits and tangy orange. Taste - more tangy orange going into marmalade. Tangy lime finish. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry and tangy finish. Overall - nose a bit gentle but better thereafter.

Beersiveknown (4009) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
Factoberfest 2011 .A good example of a new world pale ale this beer was pithy, resinous and clean with a floral aroma. The beer really benefitted from its 60 minutes continual hopping with centennial, cascade and amarillo,
