2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass golden-yellow, huge head. Mild fruity aroma. Starts bitter and dry, fruity like grapefruit. Finish less fruity, dry-malty, bitter-sourish. Not my favourite.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Label claims 4.9% ABV, as well as 46IBU Huge & dense broken white to cream head, irregular, over (cold)hazed amber beer. Fruity, sweetish nose with pineapple, passion fruit, rainwater. Thick head hampers the perception. Bitter, if nowhere exaggerated. Less fruity than the nose, dry, tad resiny, virtually nothing else. Very demure - too shy. Again a rather watery MF, the aftertaste becoming hopoils somehow dissolved in water. A tad too restrained, definitely. APA would be more bold in its country of origin.

Aroma of fruits, citrus, orange peel, floral hops, hint of caramel malt. Flavour is fruity and hoppy with a moderate bitter finish. Very fresh and sessionable APA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear, deep golden with an off-white head. Lovely fresh, citrusy hops in the nose. Light body, a little heavily carbonated with a slight sweetness. But itís really all about the hops, fresh, crispy aroma hops. Not very bitter though. Extremely sessionable. 130914

330ml bottle from Beerhive. Pours hazy amber, nice long-lasting white head, nice lacing. Light pale fruit aromas, pineapple maybe. Taste has light citrus bitterness, light sweet malt. Juicy. Finish is a bit thin, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Male Ales or something. Pours lightly hazy red-amber with a big, creamy off-white head. The nose holds crackery malts, old pine and a bit of toasted caramel. Light-medium sweet flavor with more toasty crackers and caramel, some berries, grape, ripe orange, faint metallic bite, some earth. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Semi-dry to finish with further toasted crackers, dry earth, dry bread, some leaves and vaguely oily pine, citrus essence. Not a stunner by any means but itís drinkable.
