Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Pizza Port tap takeover. Pours clear, bright yellow with a lively, white cream head. Big citrus hop nose, rife with orange and tangerine, light pine, pale malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with dry citrus, lemon, tangerine, pine needles, adequate balancing pale malt sweetness. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Light dry citrus finish, with grapefruit, lemon and tangerine, along with some lovely mango notes. Awesome beer. Stupidly drinkable.

Craft Clerkenwell Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Keg. 6.8%. Light haze on this gold beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and a little crisp. Lovely light hops. Touch of skunk, nice mellow fresh grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium bitterness in the semi dry finish which also shows floral character. Really well integrated.

Tap @ Pizza Port Carlsbad... Poured pale, golden/yellow with a thick white head. Nose had an intense amount of piney, citrus, floral hops. Tasted of hop juice with a hint of malt balance. So much hop flavor but not overly bitter. Fruity with citrus and tropical fruits. Hops in the finish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had to rate this as an IPA, even though its classified as a "strong" pale ale... the brewers were probably .5 gram light on the hops to make this a pale ale. But its all IPA. And its a really good one. Pours yellowish gold, with a nice 2 finger head that stays present throughout the drinking experience. Big citrus and tropical fruit aroma that carries through in the taste. Nice balance. Lacing is fantastic. Really strong pine/resin/"grass" notes that definitely make this more IPA than pale ale. Great beer. On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad.
