Cask in Porterhouse Covent Garden. Light brown, clear, white head. Nose is citrousy fragrant, pithy orange. Taste is pithy orange juice, bitter orange tang, lots of citrous, but crystal malt caramel. Not really an American pale ale, as the crystal malt character makes the balance a bit wide of the mark.

Bottle. Hazy looking bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is strongly hopped with a reasonable amount of bitterness, the flavour is very bitter and hopped with a yeasty dry finish. Overall a nice well hopped and bitter beer.

(Bottled) the nose is fatty and syrupy , with sticky hops and woody aftershave intertwined with smells similar to a musty cabin located in an isolated forest .... A large beige head takes over a tulip , above deep ass copper .
rich aromatic hops , sticky and cloying , rather woody and dry too ..faint caramel vibes .rather like the texture of DIPA minus the booze .

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, red-gold with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma holds some wet pine, berries, toast, caramel and light grass. Nice flavor, if a bit wimpy. Light to medium sweet with some resinous pine, ripe orange citrus, toasty malts, light dirt and grass. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty smooth. Light to medium sweet to finish with bready, lightly toasty malts, some mild pine thatís slightly oily, very mild caramel, some faint citrus rind. Some soft but lasting gritty hops, like dirt, grapefruit rind and grass. Itís an OK APA. Good and drinkable, but it doesnít have much kick.
