3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - old gold colour with slim white head. Citrus hop aroma with tropical fruits. Nice well balanced hoppy flavour with a long bitter finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Feels more like a pale ale than an IPA, but very good nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a head. Good fruity tropical nose, although as it has plenty of strength its taste is a little more subdued but still citrus notes you associate with the tropics.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Firm golden decent enough head that looms like nits about to flatten but keeps soloing it out until the finish. Neat white grapefruit nose, crispbread. Slekit bitterness, decent oily bitter flick on the palate. Dry kickback, more light lemon. Nice and sessionable but not grip to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. It pours a clear, pale golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Cheesy nose with some citrus peel and flowers, pale malts in the back. The flavor has pale malts as a backdrop for citrusy, cheesy hops. A nice bitterness too. Dry, medium bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. Bitter finish. A boring one, that drinks easily. 131019

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At home- 13 Dec 2013. Judging by the BB date this bottle is about a month old. Clear golden colour with very thin head. Nose is grassy citrus with malts coming through. Flavour is sweet up front with a sharp bitterness at the end. Doesn't really feel like it's hanging together properly. Disappointing.
