2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
25th May 2012
Cloudy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light palate, dry. A little soft malt, trace of caramel. Mild orange hops with a whisper of pine. Dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Okay but a bit dry and lacking hop fruit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Bree Louise with Sarah. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of pine hop with a hint of grass backed by a note of biscuit. Flavor has a nice pine hop with a hint of resin and a grain backbone. Easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Oddbins West Hampstead. An orange-tinged ale, not much of a head. Smooth fruity hop flavours, orange, citrus. Not a hop bomb, but a well balanced hoppy pale ale. It just lacked a touch of crunch and freshness in the hop to be really really good, but very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A cloudy orange due to yeast sediment, and a head that lasts nicely leaving impressive lacing. Aroma is a little grassy hop but mainly Um Bongo. That’s a tropical fruit juice from the UK. Or the Congo, according to its packaging. Anyway. Taste is really hoppy with a citrus streak and a dry finish. This is great.

Cask at OPC Original Pub Company, not bad and well priced.. the nelson sauvin are present but not in your face, I would fancy this as an English IPA more than an APA but we’re splitting hairs. also tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really surprised by some of the lower ratings on this. Bottle from Kris Wines. Colour is light hazy orange, light fluffy foam head. Nose is sherberty orange, tangerine, floral, tropical fruit. Taste is tangerine, tropical fruit, caramel malt and a grapefruity bitter citrous finish. Body is light to medium. Realy like this, was great with spicy food. This’ll be regular for me, would like to compare it on cask.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’12. Gold with white head. This is a real hop monster and very good because of it. There is a lightish maltiness but a crunching hop impact, passion fruit and apricot, good depth, bitter, drying. Really pretty good.

Bottle. Clear light amber color with a big white head. The taste is malty sweet brioche bread. Light fruits. Mango, pineapple, tropical citrus. Seagrass and tobacco. The taste is Light tropical fruits, straw, strawberry caramel malt, more tobacco. Slightly oxidized I imagine. Dry bitter hoppy finish. Prickly carb. Overall, decent.
