Not a bad head and a full flavoured beer. Strong tastes of wet dog but a well balanced pale ale with enough after taste to make me want another sip. Not bad but not great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden color, with lots of bubbles and a one finger white head that fades quickly. Aroma is great! Bright citrus, peach, a bit of grass, a touch of malt sweetness and just a hint of spicyness. Taste is lightly bitter on the attack, some sweet malts, a spicy character and a bit of melon on the mid palate, and then a really complex finish. The finish has a definite grapefruit bitterness, which is followed by some lovely biscuity notes, and then changes again back to a more resinous bitterness. A really excellent pale ale with great complexity.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a Hazy, Dirty-Gold colour.
Aroma. can smell tropical fruits, though its a very weak aroma.
Strait away i taste a smooth biscuity caramel flavour, followed by a nice grapefruit bitterness, with also some tropical fruit flavours in there.
Overall. Smooth and easy drinking from start to finish with plenty of flavour to still appreciate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Wasn’t sure if a hybrid pale ale would be any good, but they managed to pull this one off. Lively but not over done aromas of hops and citrus. Quite sweet palate of caramel, malt and fruit. Went down well with my burger.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A bit overcarbonated. Bottle has been warm for a few months.
White, thick foam, stays well and tiny bubbles, lasts for several minutes.
Clear, yet not totally see-through.
Aroma is very fruity, a lot of melon, mango, passion. Not very citrusy and spicy. Overall aroma is mellow, soft, warm summer day in the garden.
Hops are very straightforward, a lot of sweet fruit at first and then a subtle transformation into a quite weak bitter. Slight overcarbonation kills most of the malt flavours. Not very pretentious, perfect for a warm day and quenching thirst.
Overall impression is good.
