3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear sparkling dark yellow with a whole lots of foamy white head and some visible carbonation. Smell is definite hops, lots of citrus, and a bit of a fruitier variety mixed with a bit of sweet toffee maltiness. Palate is medium bodied with a bit under average carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first then really quite bitter, and it stays bitter for quite a while. A competent APA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Red House, Kingston, Nov 26 2013) Pours a very hazy medium-dark gold with a big cap of white froth. Aroma some pine and vegetal notes with a bit of citrus pith. Flavour weakly hoppy, pine and earthy with a slight fruity character, pale and rather grainy malts prominent in the middle, moderately bitter finish. Mouthfeel was a light-bodied cask ale, typical for style. I have a feeling the cask may not have been at its best, but this was a boring pale ale at best and blown away by the draught version of Rhyme and Reason, also brewed by Ryan Morrow, which followed.

Cask. Pours pinapple juice with a well sparkled head. Hop notes of tropical fruit on the nose; pinapple, mango, citrus and a hint of pine. A mild touch of biscuity malt. Dry and light bodied with a slightly bitter finish. A great pale ale, really accentuated by cask format.

Exactly what we need on the local scene: a tasty pale ale with all the flavour & a kick back & relax alcohol count. Taste is fresh squeezed citrus & bursting hops. Puts the ’able’ in sessionable

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured clear amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of light bitter and citrus hops with light dry caramel malt presence. Taste is mostly dominated by light dry and citrus hops notes with light dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad overall but lacking a bit of a hops punch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bright straw yellow, with a lemon-lime citrus hop aroma and flavour, marred slightly by a powdery quality that I dislike (for a while I was finding this quality in a bunch of Phillips’ beers).
