Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during the Second Birthday Celebration - London. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nops in the aroma are slightly cheesy, with other notes of dry citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor with clean citrus, some dank cheese, moderate sweet pale malts. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat drying to finish, which is nice, with faint pine and tangerine. Tasty APA.

Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Clear golden color, short head. Soft hoppy aroma, grapefruit. Quite bitter, bit too dry. Bit on the harsh side, which you see a lot with new brewers trying to make APAs and IPAs. Slightly off-balance for me.
