Appearance is kinda gross - rich urine colour. Aroma is mild fruit; citrusy sweetness. Taste is mild hops, fruit and bitterness. Very well balanced. Finish is best thing about it - clean with a mild bite and sweetness. Very good IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy deep blond color with medium sized head. Wonderful aroma, full of citrusy hops and with a typical English, earthy touch, and sweat. The mouthfeel is very lean, and dry; elegant toffee flavor, light; strong bitterness, expected, with citrusy notes, orange peel, and light papery end; long final. No caramel and no residual sweetness. The hopping seems more complex than just Citra, maybe because of the yeast.
Excellent American IPA, very clean but still with a British touch.

This it a nice strong pale ale with a more subtle aroma than citra. There is a still an evident smell of fruit with this beer and the taste has become more intense with age, things do get better with age! This beer is clear and has a thin white head which lasts longer than Citra. A really nice beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a golden straw colour with small white head. Disappears pretty quickly to nothing. Light citrus hops and not much else in the aromas. Flavours show some sweet caramel up front before a light resiny hop finish. OK but nothing to make it stand out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 11C. Clear pale gold with a white head that’s soon less than a coat. Intense lemon aroma with some leaves as well as zest, passionfruit and dusty mango, hay. Slightly oily. A little clean pale malt and some tropical fruit sweetness, plenty of bitterness. Tingling dry and bitter finish with pepper, lemon and mango. Just enough to back up the hops and they certainly shine.
