3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Ian, thanks a lot! Holy shit, what an aptly named beer. Light golden pour with a big white head. Lots of piney aroma with some sweet caramel. Very light bodied, with sticky pine hops. I don’t think I’ve drank a beer this fast since funneling them through a lawn ornament in high school.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 355ml bottle on 23/8/2013. Pours a clear lightish golden with a small head. Has a beautiful floral, fruity aroma, featuring loads of passionfruit. The flavour includes sweet citrus fruit, a hint of stone fruit, and a lovely medium, lingering grapefruit bitterness. Has a light body and medium carbonation. This is a very nice IPA and quite impressive for something that weighs in at just 4.7% ABV.

BB 23/10/2015. Poured a hazy golden amber colour with a thin off-white head that quickly diminished to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation low and medium. Aroma of nice citrus/grapefruity hops with some tropical fruits. Taste of nice citrus/grapefruits. Light to medium body. Smooth, crisp and refreshing with a lingering hoppy bitterness on the finish. A very nice example of an IPA!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Transluclent golden orange colour with faint trace of yeast; Half finger head and soapy white foam which lasted for 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Very fragrant sweet aroma of ale malt, with fresh orange, honey, grapefruit zest and juice, pomegranate, light pineapple, sugar, light pine, peaches, lime and light grass; Very light sweet taste of ale malt, with light grapefruit, notes of molasses, pine, light resin, lime, grass and moderate to light bitter hops; Mid to light body, thin, slick and slightly oozy palate; Mouth feel is by-the-book: just right maltyness, a bit thin but still piney and oozy, low sweet, negligible booze, touch of grapefruit, dry crispy as hell and strong hops. Pretty good for the style… Hoppiness is very fragrant orange, grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits and light pine aroma, restrained grapefruit, resiny pine, and strong grassy lime in taste. Strong but restrained bitter hops for a long, semi-abrupt bitter finish; Very dry after taste, bitter and quite spicy to mouth.
Comments: Have to get this style tick after the Oakham Citra was briefly listed as Session IPA (which I still think it is rather than being an APA). Doesn’t matter now: this one is very typical and to the point. Its aroma is way better than the muted and restrained taste. Still bitter and dry, this is close to perfect as Session IPA, but I prefer the tasty, sweet and boozy IPA proper or IIPAs instead.
