3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at CBC Brixton. Pours cloudy gold colour with thin white head. Lovely aroma - passion fruit, mango, pineapple with some lemony citrus. Medium to light body. It's light and fresh with mild grapefruit bitterness alongside a little of the tropical fruits. It's dry with a bit of tonic in there too. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has sweet caramelly malt, light one, and very soapy fruity hops. Some flat grains. Bit floury but smooth palate. Some yeastiness in flavour which is not nice. Pretty huge amount of grapefruits.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Aroma is really hoppy but the end of the aroma is a bit woolly. Flavor is grassy hoppy but has some vegetables. The vegetables on the flavor lower the score, but otherwise this is a basic apa.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle @ HeBF. Pours a bright golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, mango and nettles. Flavour of strong grapefruity hops, caramel, pine, sweet fruits, grass and citrus. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a lingering bitter grapefruity finish. Refreshing. Good but a bit one-dimensional.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 33 cl bottle @ HeBF’13, BBE 08/2013
Aroma is sweetish and quite heavy with exotic fruits, hops and caramel. Flavour is hoppy with gooseberry bush, grapefruit and pine needles. Slightly harsh bitterness in the finish. Typical and good APA.
Cask @ Olutexpo 2013
Nice hop juice, but nothing much.

Cask at Port Street, Manchester. This was fabulously delicious, hops are here, for sure, but there’s also a sweet Belgiany element to this that I quite enjoyed.
