3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big IBU beer, on tap at Bryden’s Best of the West 2013. Golden coloured and lacy. A decent bitterness with orange citrus taste. Odd aroma, this pint. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Supermarket, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out fresh doughy malts, sweet cereal, and piney hops. Good solid pale, but nothing overly special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at C’est What. Pale golden pour. The aroma is a little bit fruity. Light spicy/fruity hops. Fairly dry palate with a bit of crackery malt flavour. Minerally bitterness and a touch of lingering crackery character. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Juicy citrus fruit evolve into sizeable resinous bitterness within this Pale Ale’s bready malt sweetness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the hazy straw yellow.
-The big yet soft bubbles feel natural.
-The bread-laden residual sugars are a bit too much for my liking in this type of brew.
-Hops are enticing from aroma to finish.
-Drinkability is high.
Bottle. Merci, Luc!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-04-05. Hazy dark orange body, nice frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, notes of grass, green hops and citrus melange. Flavour is fairly bitter throughout, pleasantly so, moderate citrus throughout, tangerine and grassy dry hops in the finish, bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. 7+ Smooth average plus palate is pretty carbonated, almost just a touch too much so. Quite enjoyable and very quaffable. Bottle

On tap at Barley Brothers. Pours a clear yellow gold with a a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a nice earthy citrus with a bit of sweet citrus and a light grain backbone. Flavor has a real nice citrus note with a bit of bread and some sweetness.

Bottle, provided by TylerDurden. Hazy bright yellow body, lively lasting white head. Terrific hop aromatics, lots of pine and citrus, with austere crackery pale malts, very low sweetness and long bitterness. Fantastic stuff!
