Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a medium-sized white froth cap. The aroma yields lemon and stone fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of dry minerals, some lemon peel, grapefruit, nips of cat pee. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous and sticky on the finish with restrained pale malt sweetness, some orange juice, further minerals, mild urine, lemon, dirty hay. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 24, 2013 - 330ml bottle consumed at the brewery. Hazy light gold - no floaties - smallish white head. Resin/pin C-hop with citrus zest, lightly fruity, not much alcohol. Taste - lemon and something elderflower-like (bitter and herbal), less resin. Average body, medium carbonation, very dry finish, tries to coat the palate with grapefruit pith bitterness, doesn’t quite hold it - bump it one point for massive drinkability, like all the beers I tried from them.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Partizan. It pours hazy gold with a thick, foamy white head. The nose is mango, passion fruit, sweet orange, straw and minerals. The taste is crisp, pithy lemon, bitter grapefruit, straw, pine and grass with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Perhaps a touch too dry, but good stuff nonetheless.

Hazy paleish gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and semi dry with fine carbonation. Mellow grapefruit pith. Touch of orange and light floralness. Bitter peel kicks in and then a whisper of tropical fruits. Light dry finish. Pretty tasty but feels thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours clear light golden with a minimal white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy and all on the fruity sweet-ish side of the coin. No piny notes but strong apricots and pineapple. Taste is quite sweet for an APA as well but intense bitter at the same time and well balanced. More fruit comes through alongside some resiny and biscuity notes. Medium bodied with silky texture and low carbonation. Very balanced and refreshing, but very close to an IPA in complexity and depth of flavors (and ABV as well). Good and fruity.

Hazy pale burnished gold. Some grapefruit pith on nose. Dry with quinine bitterness, some sweet malt and fruity finish but lost the hop freshness in its old age.
