COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

Moderate foam. Lovely inviting aroma of bright biscuit and a little flower that is comfortable with honey. The taste is full-bodied with a lovely touch of honey, flowers, pine and citrus. It is an extremely good pale ale that tastes just fine with many small undertones of the aforementioned flavor notes without any of them being dominant. Very nice and well-brewed pale ale which all flavor notes give each other space and roominess. I am excited.

Bottle. Vibrant golden beer with a strong whitish head. The aroma is well hopped with some yeastiness, and the flavour is deeply hopped and very dry with some smooth toffee elements. Overall a nice well hopped ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1624) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2015
12 oz bottle from Total Wine and More The ale poured a hazy light amber with small off-white head and modest lacing. The aroma was a grassy hops and some pale malts. The ale has a medium body and soft carbonation. The ale had more flavor as it warmed up.

Slightly murky light copper beer with a thin bright white head that recedes quickly. Nose of unbaked biscuit dough mixed with floral honey and sprinkled with heather. The flavor has more of a hoppy profile with pretty strong citrus and pine resin flavors bolstered by a tiny bit of honey sweetness at the end. Not sure if it’s the combination of flavors or if there’s something else there, but the aftertaste turns into something soapy, which brings everything down a bit. Decent beer, but not great.

Une bière légèrement amère mais relativement fruitée. Houblon, raisin et citron. Rien de renversant, mais rien à redire.

LazyPyro (223) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
500ml bottle. Very clear golden colour with a small creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, malty, doughy/bready - not too keen on that part. Flavour is also very hoppy with a fruity bitterness, citrusy finish.

bhensonb (13234) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Bottle from Dart at Stateline. Pours bright gold with a large creamy white head. Citrus aroma. Med body with a lot of carbonation that left quickly. Flavor is citrus, sort of grapefruit rind, sort of zesty, with some malt support that’s a bit different from what I usually find. Drinks easily.

35cl bottle. Floral aroma, sparking golden appearance. Frothy head that dissapeared after a few minutes. Medium bitter taste with a lovely floral base and a slight citrus hint. Overall a really nice beer one I would have again.
