3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Oddbins, cloudy dark gold (OK, I didn’t pour it as cautiously as I could have...) with a thin fine white head and aromas of tropical fruit, pine, something spicy, grapefruit and maybe a hint of honey. On the palate it’s hugely hoppy but with a decent malty body underneath and an interestingly herbal or earthy bitter edge that made me think more of Anglo-American Pale Ale than APA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Le Gothique Wandsworth Beer Festival on 29 March 2013. Poured a hazy golden, with a halo of scummy white head. Really nice aroma of citrus hops, juicy fruit and honeycomb. Citrus and grapefruit hop flavours, with a nice biscuit malt backbone. Finish was nice balanced bitter resin, chewy malt and citrus peal.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 14/02/14. A golden coloured beer with a big bubbly white head and lace. Nice tropical citrussy fruity hops in the nose. Very bitter in the mouth. Good sharp hops and nice pale malts. A bit too bitter really for me but doubtless a well brewed beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hack & Hop. Pours vibrant orange with a small white cap on top. Nose is full of ripe orange and tangerine/mandarin. Tropical and citric. Taste is very tropical and citric as well - mandarin is so in your face. Lemon tang focus on top of the tropical juices. Touch of melon works. Very tangy and quaffable stuff with nice spritzy carbonation. Very solid

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Ticks boxes I don’t even have. If it had any more tangy fruitiness it would combust. An immense APA, and a fantastic inaugural beer from Rocky Head.
