Cask at the Old Fountain - London. Pours mostly clear, yellow-gold with a strong, fluffy white head. Pale malt nose, mildly bready, some straw, dry lemon. Medium sweet flavor with some bread, lightly tangy tangerine, rioe orange, earthy hay, mild grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with moderate piney resins, bready pale malts, further tangy tangerine, some spicy pine, nips of alcohol, grass, dirt. A somewhat atypical APA but pretty well nuanced.

7 Lovely hoppy aroma - peach and lychee, and other sweet fleshy fruits.
3 Mid orange, tiny brief head.
6+ Nice hoppy body, as you’d expect from the aroma, but it’s not a very complex beer. It’s only about the hops and is a bit one-dimensional.
4 Smooth and fruity. Sweetish. Big and bold, but nice.
13 Pretty tasty IPA. Fruity and fresh.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled 26/05/13. A yellowy gold coloured beer with a white ring of head and a little lace. A lovely sharp zesty beer. A great hop profile and lovely pale malts. Pretty bitter but it’s the zestiness that domiantes and is really tasty.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
From the keg menu at the Hanging Bat, one third pint. Orange-gold coloured body, near-clear. Diminishing white head, fragile lacing. Inviting citrus hoppy nose. Blended flavours of pineapple and grapefruit offset by lightly sweet pale malts. Super fresh fruit bitter aftertaste. Smooth in the mouth. Medium bodied. A pleasure to drink this one (Edinburgh 11.08.2013).

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Not in good shape. Honey and cantaloupe and stale paper-y oxidized pale malt. Sour fruit rind, burnt pineapple, old peanuts, a kind of green mildew flavor and aroma. Medium body, lightly sweet with dull hop character and little carbonation to give life to what is there. From bottle.
