Cloudy amber beer, good white head. Light crisp palate. Mild minerals. Good fresh orangey hops, floral as well. A little brett - is this mildly infected? Doesn’t really matter as it doesn’t dominate. Bitterness ramps up toward the dry finish.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
On tap at the brewery, thanks to Shaun. Pours lightly hazy gold with a strong, white head. Notes of piney and citrusy hops in the aroma. Lovely flavor, moderately sweet with fruity bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sturdy bitter finish, more tropical fruits and citrus, with pale malt sweetness. Great beer.

Growler @ Dan’s house, courtesy of Steve_0. Thanks a bunch! Pours a milky yellow orange appearance with a bit small white head. Herbal, onion, honey, lemon citrusy, spicy hoppy aroma. A bit tangy tangerine/lemon citrusy, spicy herbal hoppy, grapefruity, juicy flavor. Pretty tasty, easy drinking beer.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2014
Pours from a swingtop bottle a hazy blonde color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, grapefruit and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste. Solid APA all around.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Juicy tropical fruit (namely grapefruit and starfruit) quickly gain resinous qualities in this lean and prickly New World Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam crowns the cloudy blond.
-These hop resins are also reminiscent of green peppercorns at times.
-Light straw notes appear under the hop bouquet.
-Resinous bitterness is lengthy but forgiving.
-Although intense, this remains a quenching hop-forward Pale Ale imbued with farmhouse "realness".

Pouring at Parker Pie when Andy, Max, Pearl and I went there for dinner after the Hill saison fest. Then again from a growler I took to James’ mead tasting. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Big sticky citrus, toast and malt. Smooth, big pungent citrus, loads of supple grapefruit. Long sweet sticky malt. Big hop juice. Long gentle grapefruit bitterness with notes of candied grapefruit.
