UPDATED: AUG 3, 2016 Colore biondo intenso con riflessi arancio, schiuma bianca frizzantina. Aroma di caramello, agrumi e fruttato. Al palato leggera e fresca, buona amarezza e complessità, con agrumi di nuovo in evidenza e frutta. Finale appena secco, carbonazione media. Ottima session ipa

Pint, keg. Pours pale amber with no head. Scent is late hops of fruit. Taste is surprising dense IPA flavors of late hops, as well as cereals. This might actually be my preference over long white cloud. Finish is clean. Really good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Rich lemon-gold with a few bubbles & lasting solid white head. Aromas of hay, lemony-hops, light bitterness, very gentle malt undertones. Medium body, soft spritz, gently acidic finish, dry. Citrus leads the palate (though with low intensity), gentle nectarine & honey follow. A very well balanced session ale with light hop and light malt character, light flavours also. "Gentle" is the word!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Bishop Langley, Durham.
Golden with only the thinnest, off-white head as it was poured inexpertly by a barman on his first ever shift. Ever without a head the aroma was muted, although some sweet floral and tropical fruit notes are there if you look hard enough. The taste is altogether rather different, dry verging on sour with some grainy, leafy, wooden character. It’s a reasonable beer with some sharp, interesting flavours but it lacks drinkability and is marked down as such.
