carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. One taste and I was surprised to see this in the pale ale category. This is equal to other IPAs. Deliciously fruity pine citrus, grapefruit, tangerine flavors. Still a fairly light body, lovely bitter finish -- my favorite plain old "american pale ale" or whatever category it supposedly belongs.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, Pizza Port tap takeover. It pours a peachy orange body with a soapy white head. Aroma is truly great with loads of super-fresh hops. Citrusy with orange and loads of pineapple notes. Some leafs and grass. Taste is hugely hoppy and fruity, but not excessively bitter. More citrusy notes and some pineapple and grass. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, top notch APA.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2013
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.
