3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted 01/05/2009. 12oz bottle from Beerstore. Big malt-driven APA. Hop flavour and bitterness are good but the malt is just a little too rich to make me want to order six more.A little dark malt to add a dry finish and a redder hue and this would make a kick ass amber...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma is a nice blend of floral hops, tropical fruit and a little caramel. Appearance is a light reddish golden color with a half inch of pillowy white head. Taste starts off with lots of bitter, resinous hop flavors along with a bit of orange citrus and pine. These flavors are nicely balanced by the bready toasted malts and caramel. Mouthfeel is crisp and medium-bodied with full carbonation. It finishes dry and bitter with a pleasantly hoppy aftertaste. This is an extremely flavorful and balanced APA that makes for an ideal session beer. I’ll definitely be adding this one to the warm weather rotation.

On tap. A clear gold color with a white head that stays around and a bit of lacing. Pleasant hoppy aroma with some lemon zest. The flavor is mostly hops with a bit of the lemon and a long aftertaste.

Keg at The Port Street Beer House, Manchester. A pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, some mango, pine, slight grass and floral hops. Taste of grapefruit, lemon, some mango, pine, resin, slight grass, subtle grain, floral hops and some caramel in the close. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A crisp, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Pleasant citrus, pine and floral hop characteristics in this beer, plus it’s so crisp and refreshing. A really well made APA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very nice amber-gold color with a decent head of lacy foam. Ample aroma supplies plenty of hops and hints of malt; an unmistakable APA signature for the nose. Perhaps just a bit on the hoppy side but overall balance is good. This is an excellent example of the style and has some character of it's own as well. Drinkable and refreshing, a good session candidate that I will have this on my buy-a-sixer list.

Pours clear golden. Aroma is malty, hoppy. Nice balance. Taste is lighter than the aroma suggested. Nice balance, some hops and malts, a very nice pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lively, clear golden beer with a white bubbly head. Strong, floral citrus aroma. Flavour is surprisingly mellow. Lemony hop, somewhat dry, a bit of a resinous hint to it and this gives it a slightly tangy aftertaste which lingers for a fair while.
