Hazy burnished amber gold with fluffy beige head. Herbal pine and grapefruit peel. Medium carbonation and body, quite dry chalky bitterness, past its best but that’s my fault.

Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s slightly hazy deep gold with a small head. Super bright tropical fruit nose. Plenty of pineapple, mango, grapefruit etc. Cotton candy sweets. The taste is bright grapefruit citrus. Moderately bitter. A touch of pine. Clean malts in support. Dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall, really well done. Just a squeaky clean, well-executed APA. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from the brewery and drunk at home. Orange gold colour slight haze thick rocky off white head. Yes a fruity tasty pale ale. Jeez, Partizan and Kernel are just so much further ahead than the other London brewers. Grapefruit and earthyly led by the Cascade. I guess the Willamette is slightly sweet, so a kind of blackcurranty grapefruit. Quite tart and earthy. But the grapefruit is good. Good bitterness on finish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Lemon, grass and slightly vegetal.
Appearance: Murky golden body with a massive white head. Light carbonation. Excellent lacing.
Taste: Lemon and lime, biscuity malt. Good bitterness.
Palate: Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: A decent APA, but I’d prefer a bit more malt sweetness to counteract the sharp hops.
