3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 500ml bottle on 21/12/2010. Pours golden, with just a tiny bit of sediment evident. Has a pleasant and quite strong aroma of floral and citrus hops, and a little honey. Starts off with sweet fruit (apricots), along with some biscuity malt and some honey. Has a very solid and quite dry hop finish, with a lingering grapefruit like aftertaste. A very nice APA, and impressive for something which is only 4.5%. Classy packaging too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber gold, thin off white head. Sweet fruity apricot/peach/citrus aromas. Lots of citrus taste and quite a hoppy bitterness that has some pleasing pepper and zing to it. Little thin but lenghty finish. Hoppy & different, like it.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle. Wow. Big creamy head atop a dense golden body with large bubbles making up and settling quickly. Bursting with big juicy hop aroma that are floral, piney and oh so good. Flavour is robust with a citrus aftertaste and tangy fruitiness that lingers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 A pretty decent APA by way of Kiwi hops, which seem to have a rough round the edges quality - more so than your ’3 cs’. Nose was pineapple and pine through a garden shed and the mouth was similar.
