3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at 9a. Amber with a white head. Aroma is quite something, massive hop hit, has it all, grapefruit, pine, orange. Similar taste, lots of citrus hops. A bit on the warm and flat side a la cask. I’m sure I’d love this from a bottle or keg.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[cask, FyneFest 2012] Golden pour, thick white head. Enormous citrus aroma – grapefruit, lemon and lime. This one has real hop bite to it – more citrus, leading to a long bitter finish. Lots of body, too, at 6%. Outstanding

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at JDW. Orange pour with lots of lacing. Good use of American hops, conjuring up tangerine, grapefruit and mango in the aroma. Body holds together well and has the extra thickness that the ABV would suggest. Not as fresh and thirst-quenching as other beers of I’ve had of this style, but another good beer from Hawkshead.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ CPK. A cousin of Hawkshead’s NZPA. Light coppery color with a medium white head. Hoppy nose, plenty of pine needles, resin, juicy fruits. The flavor is much the same, balanced hop flavors, drinkable and not over the top by any means. Flowery. Medium body, easy to drink. Subtle carbonation. Overall, a really nice pale ale served in great nick.
