3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Frisch hopfiger, sehr grasiger Antrunk. Wenig herbe, das Bier ist komplett auf die hopfige Getreidigkeit aufgebaut. Ziemlich eigen ist auch der Abgang, frisch aber doch ein wenig muffig, Grasig-bitterer Abgang, weich, erstaunlich süffig. Gelungenes Bier! 7/10/9/10/11/11

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Aroma of resin and citrus (though not exactly grapefruit). Amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is something caramel with a lot of floral and noble hop. The hop has the lead, and the malt slips away. The finish is decently dry, and the hop continues to build. It’s actually rather soft and smooth for such a hoppy drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper/amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Most awesome GD hoppy aroma. Grass, citrus, tobacco, and a little peach. Plenty of malt richness and sweetness, and a smooth velvet mouthfeel. Wonderful APA flavour and bitterness, with that perfect GD balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Some pine like, spruce notes on opening, the beer itself was slightly sweeter than the aroma suggested. Grassy hops push through the lighter, fruity body, fresh, some hay, some herbs. Reasonable.
