(12oz bottle) Lightly hazed copper body topped by a big off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, floral, grapefruit, peach, some caramel. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, orange, floral, some peach, faint lime. Pretty solid bite. Smooth medium body with some resin. Could stand for a bit of rounding, but still, this is a pleasant beer.

opaque orange, sweet grapefruit aroma, lots of citrus grapefruit flavor with a sweetness that’s like sugar on your morning grapefruit, nice long low bitter finish, does not hold up to the bottom of the glass
Words: Mellow Mushroom
ditto, holds up better but looses the citrus and becomes a great sweet and bitter ipa
lots of bitterness and not so much sweetness
sweet soapy carmel malt aroma, muted hop flavor, good carmel sweetness, must be an aged sample
turns into a nice bitter pale ale, looses the citrus and even most of the sweetness,
clear copper, fine white head, solid lace, sweet citrus aroma, creamy body, rich hop flavor followed by tons of bitterness, enough caramel sweetness to provide a bit of a backbone but it’s all about the hops, best sample yet but still needs more hop flavor than the bitterness
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 13/20

Draft... Hazy, apricot ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. Malty, floral aroma. Heavily bitter flavor... grapefruit rind, plastic and toffee. Medium-bodied and oily with moderate carbonation. Finishes bitter as hell. Surprisingly good.

Aromas of earth, floral / fresh green hoppiness, and faint caramel peaking its way through in the background. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and some floralness. Body a tad on the thin side.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy deep golden colour. Very sweet and slightly buttery aroma. Caramel, butterscotch and some orange citrus. Flavour is fruity and citrusy but the fat buttery notes really kill this one for me. Medicinal and aspirin-like. Not a fan.
