330ml bottle from Tesco. Golden colour with a small white head. A sweet floral aroma. Flavour is hoppy with caramel and malt. Not much flavour and certainly not the level of hops you would expect.

On tap at the Faraday, Epsom. Pours reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma is steak pie and fruit with some citrus. Sweet finish, high carbonation. Thought this was a bitter.

Pint at The White Horse, nr Liverpool Street Station. Golden amber with a very small head. Golden colour with a nice subtle pine aroma. Lightly hopped, citrus and with a little malt in the palate. Easy to drink.

Great APA! Beautiful appearance, lucent amber red color with big and really creamy head, aroma with hop notes, but not excessive, the taste is good, light body in mouth, but really creamy in combination with head, not much carbonation, unconventional litchi notes, light bitter and refreshing aftertaste, good beer!

Aroma: Malt: Light, Bready, Hops: High, Sharp, spicy, cat piss, grapefruit, passion fruit, Appearance: Clear copper body. Medium, white head. Lacing. Flavour: Malt: Hops: High sharp, spicy, fruity, grapefruit, passion fruit, pith. High bitterness initially. Very dry finish. Astringent. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Carbonic sting. Overall: Personally there is a hops in this that is very aggressive and not all that good tasting. The after flavours, the various fruits are great, but the spicy/sharp/cat piss is very off putting. Once you get past that the beer is quite good. Otherwise, the beer is to style. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 10A. American Pale Ale

330ml Bottle from Tesco (£1.65):
Weak on the nose with earthy hops & a light citrus backing with a bitter base. There is the odd grassy note & subtle hops with toasted malts closing things.
Amber to light copper with a bubbly white lacing for a head on top.
Citrus up front with a bitter & earthy malt taste & faint hops plus the odd background fruit. Basic & boring.
Touches of grain with a slight tang from the citrus & the light medium carbonation. An oily texture to the beer and it is medium bodied.

I was really disappointed with this beer, I was expecting so much better down to the fact that Dogfish Head was involved in the brewing of this one & allowed their name to be put on the bottle. Nothing more than a slightly below average English bitter or English IPA. Rubbish.

A mid to dark amber brown coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A strong fresh hop aroma, grassy and citrusy. Dry mouthfeel. A strong hop taste, pithy grapefruit and lemon, plus a piney, grassy element. Later, there is a mild hint of malt. The hop flavour lasts into a lingering finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg in the Flask NW3. Dogfish Head, on tap in Hampstead, who’d have thought it? Exciting! Quite brown in colour, doesn’t smell that hoppy. Initially quite malty, some English hop. There must be a bit more, surely...maybe it’s too cold, maybe maybe maybe. No, it tastes like a slightly cleaner and marginally hoppier version of Bombardier. It was basically the best pint of Bombardier I’ve had. Very quaffable, balanced, but don’t expect Dogfish fireworks. So not that exciting after all...

Una IPA a basso contenuto alcolico? Forse una bitter. Pulita, con un certo odore caramellato e un buon amaro persistente alla fine.
