Good reddish-brown colour, little head, and that disappears quite quickly. Nice malt/hop nose some attractive citrus character there. Palate is predominately malt, was hoping for a lot more hops, so there is a noticable sweetness to the fore, with a gentle citrus hoppiness creeping at the end. Quite drinkable, but not a typical American Pale Ale!

jjsint (2178) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Mid-gold, noticeable carbonation but no head. There isn’t much in the scent, a bit of resin, caramel and grain. Sweet taste with a bitter finish. More dull resinous caramel and orange in the aftertaste. Dull.

MrTipple (3177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Bread and grain malts, biscuit and caramel, lightly fruity. Clear, dark gold, medium, creamy, white head. Lightly fruity, grain malts continue, light bitters in the finish. Unremarkable APA, a bit malty as well. Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Bath.

BeerNinjaUK (215) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours bright orange with rapidly dissipating head. Aroma treacly, with heavy maltiness and some citrus but overbearing sweetness makes it rather cloying.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle from ye big global retailer. Appearance - bright orange like lucozade. Big fluffy head. Nose - pine and toffee. A bit dirty and earthy. Taste - citrus and toffee. Again a but dirty. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a dry earthy finish. Overall - the nose gives hope but it slides off the cliff after that. Amazing how the massive retailers despite their wealth are unable to persuade very talented brewers to sell their soul and brew for them.

Hazy brown with scummy head. Highly carbonated aroma. Sweet and citrusy, with an underlay of hoppy bitterness. Short palatte, a bit astringent on the end.

jasonbenali (117) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Better than expected given the cheap price and low scores. Pours clear and golden amber with creamy white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, caramel, with a metallic edge. Some Cascade in there, but short of the better APAs. Malty, quite sweet, but thin and lacking body for the ABV. Much better when it warms up a little and the aromas start coming through stronger.
