Bottled, 330ml from Notcutts Garden Centre, Oxford. Pale hazy gold with white head. Rather and underpowered beer, I was expecting a rather punchy APA but got a sweetish thinnish fruity beer. Very light on the palate, a bit of a non entity.

I’m a sucker for this style of IPA. The aroma and taste are incredibly fruity. There’s little going on behind that which is a shame. If the beer was stronger it would improve. So drinkable though.

Bottle @home, pours amber with a thin white head which dissipates v.quickly. Low carbonation gone inside of two minutes. Quite hoppy on the nose with some light grass. Hoppy bitterness, zesty without much fruit flavours, which makes it one toned. Quite thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. A really fine one. And it also proves how easy it is to brew a nice with APA without going up to 7 abv. Light in the taste with a decent hoppy nose and some citrus fruits in the back. To recommend.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear deep golden / light amber colour with big airy head and medium body. Aroma of fresh aromatic hops and straw. Taste of fresh hops, spruce, citrus, herbs, grass and mild spices. Very nice beer but a bit boring though. Refreshing and quaffable - enjoyed it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows floral and spicy hops with soft honey and biscuity malt underneath.
Lots more biscuity malt as a flavour, like a German pils. More spicy and herbal hops too followed by a refreshing bitterness.
Nice moderately high carbonation.
