Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

Made using only the choicest U.S. hops this triple-hopped APA has a pleasant citrus fruit aroma and characteristic robust bitterness.

A fine lasting frothy white head caps this slightly reddish amber ale. Clarity murked only by some sediment in the last few bottle drops. Hopefully this won’t spoil the fun. Citrus aroma and flavour with a zesty bite. Malt is under played and the lack of sweetness makes this appropriately a showcase for American hopping. Good carbonation kept this light and lively on the tongue. Long dry finish blends malt and citrus fruit with each breath cycle.

Cask at The Thirty Nine Steps Alehouse, Broadstairs, Kent. Poured clear and golden with a half inch white, bubbling head. Foamy lacing remained throughout consumption. Aroma was citrus fruit. Taste is malty, toffee, vanilla, biscuity and hoppy. Bitter finish on the palate. Very pleasant.

Draught (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Absolutely not an APA. US hops were used in English beers for centuries (we even changed our import tax laws to protext the home hop industry), use of US hops does not an APA make. Lovely soft black tea malty aroma, classic British bitter. Underconditioned, still frothing the tight bubbles too much, but not too too young. Head looked great after settling, tight and spongy. Nice sweetish bready malts in the body, wholemeal bread, with darkened crusts. Odd liver component in the finish, presume some iron in the water. Palate soft, carbonation low, spot on for an english bitter. Finish pleasantly hopped, bitter components dominate, some pepperiness, but there’s some fruitiness too. This is a nice english bitter, calling it APA is either ignorance of history or whoring. Don’t do either, please.

jjsint (1134) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Cask at the Hog and Partridge, St Neots. Mid-gold, clear, with a quickly dissipating head. Slight peach/pine aroma. Hard to get much of the bouquet. Sweet malty/woody taste. Slight finish. Light body. Aftertaste throws some bitter acidity at me. Not an APA by any stretch of the imagination, and hardly even a decent basic bitter.

TBone (13360) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Cask at Old Bank, Turku. Amber color, good off-white head. Aroma is grassy, citrusy hoppy but not very impressive. Medium-bodied. Fruity front, American citrus hoppy with typical UK cask toffee maltyness.
