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,

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
500ml bottle. Mid-clouded orange gold with a whipped egg white top. Fruit Salad chew, melon, Feta and lime peel aroma. Monkey nut, dunked biscuit and almond maltiness lurking beneath slightly sharp limey hop and bristling leafiness. Lean and balanced.

jmgreenuk (6193) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is big citrus fruit hop, pine needles. The flavour is medium bitter with a light malt, hop spice bitter palate and long fruity bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Really enjoyed this one. Very refreshing indeed and lots going on. For an APA is this is very good indeed and if Three Floyds had brewed it, people would be saying it was a whale i’m sure!

Pours amber with small head. In aroma very hoppy - pine, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple and some hints of malt. In taste a little bit of malt with lots of hoopy flavours (mostly citrus). Medium body and carbonation, bitter finish. Well done refreshing beer.

Brenhophead (670) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2014
500mL bottle (BB: 3.1.15). Pours a golden sunset hue with a big white head and a very fragrant piney/fruity aroma. Lots of grassey resinous pine in the flavour with a balancing fruity sweetness. For 4.6% this beer is packed full of flavour, very nice.
