3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served from cask dispense at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, (Feb ’12).
Poured into a UK half pot to a golden blonde colour with a small frothy white head.
Hops predominate the aroma, of the American West coast variety, along with some citrus flavours.
Taste wise - a punchy little hoppy number. Getting grapefruit and orange and a little spice in there.
Really enjoyed the mouthfeel and aftertaste which was of a very peppery nature, medium bodied, mininmal carbonation.
A decent hoppy number for a 4.2 % beer, will look out for this again!
