4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours clear gold, highly effervescent, with a large, pure white foam head. The aroma holds a lot of fresh and clean citrus fruits, tangy tangerine and mandarin orange, some pee, hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with nicely balanced bitter citrus rind, some juicy lemon and tangerine, mellow flinty minerals, some pine needles, just enough sweet pale malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp and super clean to finish with a bit more piss, nice tangy tangerine, some lightly dried pale malts, faint resinous pine, hints of grapefruit. Delicious. Wonderfully drinkable.

Wow. Pours straw like and oily, very light carbonation and cloudy. Smell is fresh citrus, apples, pineapple, lemongrass. Taste is wonderfully balanced, light citrus, lime, bitter herbs like Thai basil maybe. This is their best yet for sure. More please!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Stunning aroma - grapefruit, lemon, orange, pale malt and a hint of flowery soap.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden body with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: A lovely ’fruit salad’ beer - sharp lemon, sweet tangerine and tangy lime. Powerful flavours but the overall taste is still light fresh.
Palate: Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation.
Overall: A fantastic American Pale Ale - one of the best I’ve tried. Simcoe and Citra are two of my favourite hops.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, grapefruit and sweet fruits. Flavour is very well balanced with crispy floral hops, grapefruit, mango, grass, juicy pineapple, white grapes, herbs and mellow sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Drinkability couldn’t be better. Excellent balance and this happens to be one of my favourite hop profiles. Partizan rules.

Hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth airy palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malt base, thin but creamy. Nice hops - pithy orange and lemon with mellow grapefruit and a whisper of skunk. Finishes airy and dry. Tasty!

Little hazy yellow to light orange beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit sweet, malty, grains, very fruity, grapefruit, bit floral, more grapefruit. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very malty, fruity touch, grassy, bitter hops. Aftertaste: hoppy, citrus, bit floral, spicy touch, some coriander or something, maybe it’s just the yeast.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale yellow, almost a wheaty swatch of body with a bloated puff of white head. Big dried lemon, straw and almost Saison itch to the nose. Faint stewed pee later. Bombastic pale malts with a bitterness and sugary scrapes of lemon rinsed with pineapple syrup cloying hop. Wee nudge of carbonation see saws the maltiness along, to a daisy cutter fresh finish and a pissy pith linger.
