4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12th February 2013
Cask at the Brew Pub. Hazy amber beer, little white head. Palate is silky with fine carbonation. Nice palate! Very nice hops! Lovely bitter sweet citrus - orange, tangerine, lime and a little lemon. Touch of sweet pine. Finishes smooth and limey with moderate bitterness. Effortlessly drinkable and sessionable!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a soft, white foam head. Brilliant aroma, the citra really shines through, with some orange and tangering and grapefruit in particular. Light to medium sweet flavor with some tasty pale malt backbone, light dry pine needles, further orange and tangerine, some suggestions of sugary white bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good, mildly resinous finish with moderate yeast notes, orange, dry grass and pine, melon, grapefruit. Very drinkable with a great, robust citrus character; a really juicy APA. One of (if not the) the best beers I’ve had from Howling Hops.
