Beer5000 (5638) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2016
Keg @ Wagon Works, Eastleigh. Clear, pale golden body with a medium sized white head. Light and refreshing aroma with citric fruit, some grapefruit and lemon. Flavor is light, pale malt, citric fruit, lemon and medium, slightly grassy bitterness. Medium to thin body and average aftertaste. Not bad, easy drinkable, and feels really refreshing after a couple cask ales.

Keg @ The Picture House, Morley. Golden with a thick creamy head. Crisp and hoppy, with tropical fruits abundant. These are citrus, not too soured, with a grapefruit aroma and taste.

12 oz. Nice hop combo. Citrus and light pine, biscuit. Pretty subdued, though, either to age or malt or both. Still ok but not one I’d buy again.

Blond color, hazy, with compact head. A crisp Pale Ale, with nice citrusy hopping, balanced and satisfying.

Draft in Birmingham. Very drinkable pale ale, more like a hoppy lager than an IPA. But refreshing none the less.

Tim Webb (327) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2015
On tap at Cannings Hotel in Clifton, Bristol. A really rather disappointing beer with a vague reference to US hops. Not convinced it was US-brewed so that may be it. If it was, ho hum.

Keg tap at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Mid gold, some filmy white head and lots of lacing. Honey, tropical fruit and cantaloupe aroma. Bittersweet taste with tropical fruit to the fore. Bitter fruity finish, with a suggestion of resin. Palate is a bit thin. I think this is a pretty good APA all things considered.
