COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Keg & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with a small head that reduces quickly. Good hoppy aroma. Some mild tropical fruit flavours quickly buried under mountains of bitter hops and intense grapefruit. An exceptionally long bitter finish. Refreshing and satisfying. Love it.

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Big frothy white nose settles quickly, a little lacing. Hazy golden body. Sweet nose, honey and lemon. Flavour is sweet fruit, more honey, bitter grapefruit finish. Good lingering bitterness on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation and good bit of body, fills the mouth well. Really well balanced and easy to drink. Tons of flavour and low abv, a superb session beer.

Osprey87 (1700) - WALES - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle from Eebria. Very pale golden yellow, translucent, slightly sparkling, small ring of white head. Aroma is very light jasmine, slight metal. Body is light, pretty spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste is malty, lager-like, enduring saaz-ish bitterness is quite nice, but it’s not living up to the bill as an APA. Too watery. Very average.

BRW (1005) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 5, 2014
On tap at Biercab. Golden colour with white head. Fruity, herbal and earthy aroma. Fruity, herbal, resinous and bitter taste, very hoppy. Light body.

blackisle (701) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle 33cl (brown label). Clear pale golden color, small foamy white head, stays for a while, fair lacing; strong citrus nose, grapefruit, lemon; fresh bitttersweet taste (more bitter than sweet); light to medium body, never watery, soft carbonation; crisp light bitter finish. Good balance, you don’t notice the low ABV. Really good.

fairwater (134) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask @Greyfriar. Pale, clear, gold. Piney. In a lavatory block sense, but not really unpleasantly. Bit thin, bitterness that lingers, then departs. I would order it again, but not here, today, when Sound Wave is available.

Nice blonde beer with a bit of hoppy citrous flavor. Easy drinking. Easy to drink it again and again :-)
