4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Keg at Billy IV, London during the Magic Rock Tap Takeover. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Juicy orange nose, light straw, passionfruit. Medium sweet flavor with very graceful hops, light pee, straw, pale malts, fresh citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly dryness to finish with biscuity pale malts, juicy orange, mango, papaya. Delicious. Utterly drinkable. As with the High Wire NZ, I would say this is the UK’s answer to the best stuff coming out of the USA. Superb.
I also tried this beer on cask. While the cask version had more robust character, it was a touch stickier and less refreshing than the keg version. As such, I would say I prefer the keg version.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg & Cask at King William. It pours clear golden yellow with an orange hue and small white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, passion fruit, mango, straw, hopsack and grass. The taste is hay, straw, mango, apricot, resinous, light metallic, solid bitterness, pithy orange, tangerine, passion fruit and a touch of grass with a long, dry finish. Medium bodied. Cask version is slightly sweeter and stickier, which I think provides more balance overall. The higher carbonation of the keg version is harsher on the palate. A great fruity APA.
