Cask at Whitelocks, Leeds. Pours clear gold, foamy white head. Light citrus aromas, some pine. Taste has a good malt backbone, lots of hops, but it never over-loads. Lovely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craft Clerko, 27/01/14.
Very lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white head.
Nose is light caramel, citric notes, orange.
Taste comprises grapefruit, bitter orange, light hop presnce.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying grass laden closure.
Ok drinkable affair but more a glorified/ramped up golden blonde than an IPA, not enough hop presence. Style wise - an APA would be more appropriate.

Medium body, dry and with a pleasant carbonation level. Some bitterness, as well as pale malts, cheesy notes and hay in the flavor. Citrus peel notes.

Super bright light coppery colour. malty caramely aroma, toffee. Very soft on the palate, then resin pine. Good body but nothing special here - these American hops start to feel like a fad. A good beer, but average.
