Hop lovers, this is the beer for you. Four different styles of American hops are artfully staggered against a sturdy malt backbone to create a unique, drinkable and balanced Pale Ale.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy dark amber with splayed lace on top. Tastes like a muddy ESB to me. Hops are there but hardly mountainous. Smooth start and finish. Like the fuller body. Peppery orange aftertaste.

This hits a pretty nice note somewhere between a pale ale and an american style IPA. I like it. Has the mellowness, with the floral hint, of english pale ale with the citrus, pine US hops.

Bottle from some place in Canterbury. Some toffee. Again I cannot vouch for the freshness but itís better than the Beach House. Some hop. Yep itís ok even some half decent hop sting on the finish. Ok

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Dark orange with a fairly dense head and medium carbonation. Extremely pleasant aroma comprising a good balance of amber malt and caramel with orange and apricot notes, leading to a spiced fruit sweetness almost preserve like. Good body and malt presence, however the hop characters arenít as clearly defined or as deep and the aroma suggests. Despite daring the drinker with its name, the balance of the beer tends to hide much of the bitterness leading to a refreshing crisp and mildly sweet/bitter finish.

JonMoore (2024) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle - The Hop Loft at The Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough - Cloudy dark amber colour with off white head. Full bodied with some spice, pine and malty sweetness, moderately hoppy. Not bad.

Copper pour w/ a big foamy head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is quietly full of hops. The taste is in similar fashion. While the hop presence is there, the beer is still smooth, drinkable, and finishes wet. Itís a decent American Pale but thereís nothing special going on here.

Lonick (792) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Toffee apple sweetness up front what was interesting about it was from such a sweet kick it turns into a bitter aftertaste. While i normally like a hoppy beer this was just not doing it for me, iíd like to try it again, in case it was just me or the bottle.

Rune (9500) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2013
Tap, 6.7% abv, one third pint measure at Jakeís Place. Clear, red-brownish coloured body. Fair off-white head, spotty lacing. Malt-fruity smell, marmalade-like. Semi-sweet grapefruit taste with bread-like malts beneath. Fresh deep bitter ending. Well bodied. Nice (Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Aroma of pine, bitter citrus, caramel and iron. Pours deep bronze with a big head. Taste is nice with pine, caramel malt and slight iron. Passable.
