3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Excellent pale ale. Strong pineapple aroma, pours a hazy copper with a thin off white head. Soft carbonation with an oily mouth feel. Taste is bang on, heavy on the citrus and pine, with some firm bitterness to finish it off. Had this been labelled and IPA I would still have been happy!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle. Pours a thoroughly hazed light amber with a thick white head of lingering lace. Big tropical fruit nose, pineapple, mango, orange, caramel malt, biscuit and piney resin. A little malty-sweet offset by heavy hop bitterness. Probably hoppier and more aggresively bittered than some middle-of-the-road IPAs. Light bodied with above average carbonation, very refreshing and woefully drinkable. Absolutely crushed; loved it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a cloudy orange colour with good-sized white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma has lots of citrus, some sweet malt and a hint of minerally character. Flavour is citric hops with solid grapefruit, minerals, sweet, grainy malt and a little caramel. A pleasant bitterness in finish. Nice APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange brew with big white frothy head. Aroma is very big american styled upfront citrus hoppy notes with a hint of something bready. Fairly big body, but that body mostly comes from the carbonation, with hoppy citrus notes. Pretty darn good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
hazr amber pour, a thumbs worth of head. Pineapple, orange rind and grapefruit in the aroma. Same citrus profile while drinking this, with noticeable pine, and caramel in the back end. A bit metallic up front but I’m used to that with british pale ales. smooth mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy darkish amber with a big off-white head. Retains and laces beautifully. Nose very enjoyable with bittersweet grapefruit-pineapple notes, fruity, juicy, succulent... Same with flavour - the bitter hops are backed nicely by malt sweetness. Medium body, soft to average carbonation, lingering mild bitterness in the finish. Palate quite dry. Among the nicest APA-s I’ve had. Go Buxton!

Bottle from Deliciously Different. Thanks Bob! Hazy amber colour, creamy white foam. Very fruity hoppy character with bitter hoppy finish. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit. Very complex. Very good APA!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 330ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark, Notts. Slightly hazed gold amber with white head. Perfectly presented APA with juicy hops to the fore, the body of the beer itself just has a hint of caramellisation, giving it some depth, but remains crisp on the palate. The hops deliver juicy, tropical fruit notes, rich but refreshing. Good stuff.

Bottle. Nose is caramel, pineapple, tropical fruits, juicy and rich. Taste is grapefruit and lime leading to a moderate pine bitterness, slight malt and floral tones in the dry finish. Mouthfeel is good.
Pitch perfect APA.

Starts with kicking caramel in nose, quite sweet. Moderate malts background, caramel, lovely citrusy tropical hop kick, mango, peach, grapefruit, passion fruit. Feels quite complex and well balanced. Sweetish with pleasant bitterness. Drinkable and enjoyable.
