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

Pretty good pale. Good citrus aroma. Too bittered I think. And this is mr. Ibu speaking. Good starter for their excellent ipa.

(Bottle): Pours a hazy orange, white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, oranges and mandarin. Flavour is quite sweet, lots of malt with the tropical fruit and citrus fruits. Nice bitterness accompanies the lemon/grassy notes.

Bottle. It’s a hazy, golden-orange beer topped by a creamy off-white head. The aroma is mostly on the orangey, citrusy side, with a little malty touch. Quite bitter on the palate, with oranges and pine cones. Full to medium body, semi-dry and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting bitter finish with oranges. Straight forward and far from complex, but easy drinkable and quenching. 140228

Cask (Lady Greys, Newcastle) - Amber in colour. Melon, mango, grapefruit and a hint of glue (!) in the aroma. Hoppy, tangy and fruity taste with melon, grapefruit and pineapple detected.

mt_hall (161) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled. Copper coloured with some haze and a thick head of fine foam. Tropical fruit aromas and some pine too. Sweet tropical fruit in the mouth too, obviously hoppy, but the bitterness and dry finish aren’t overly astringent. Easy to drink and tasty, but a little simple.

This was an immensely likeable beer. It appeared hazy orange with a white head. Aromas of fresh grapefruit and orange peel hoppiness. Indeed, it smelled like a bit of toast spread thickly with Seville orange marmalade which was evident in both aroma and flavour. It seemed to be much more bitter than most English ales I have tasted (a good thing in no small measure), it was tart and refreshing and a bit of a treat. I was going to say it was like Thornbridge Jaipur, but it was better than that.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - 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.

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.
