To be brutally honest, this is an amazing beer. It smells great, looks good, and very smooth to drink. The flavor is hoppy while the malts easily provide a sturdy backbone. The beer tastes sweet and somewhat fruity, but it doesn’t let me forget that this is a pale ale.

Pours amber with a white head that laces the glass. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and grass. Has a full body with a great balanced taste. Great beer.

12 oz bottle. It pours a pale amber color with a small white, quickly fading head. It has a bready malt aroma, a resin and grapefruit aroma, and a little pine aroma. This beer is wonderfully balanced. The malt and hop flavors go together wonderfully. I taste pine and bread, with a little floral and some resin. I really like this beer. I was very surprised that I had not rated it.

Perfectly balanced pale ale. Old reliable. Many times I scan the offerings and end up taking home a six pack of this fine ale and am never disappointed.

Light amber pour with a white head. Small clumps of yeast floating around from bottle conditioning. Light caramel and floral hop aroma. Flavors of caramel, a hint of pine, and an assertive hop bitterness to finish.

Benchmark American Pale Ale. Out of the bottle, poured a beautiful deep copper colour with slight haze from bottle conditioning, and with a creamy persistent head. I got aromas of grapefruit citrus, orange peel, pine, and wildflower honey. Moderate caramel malt, moderate hops with lingering bitterness. Very well balance. Creamy, refreshing. Excellent.

Nicely balanced Pale Ale. Aroma is complex yet fuity. Light bitter taste and nice amber colour. An American pale ale to measure all other APAs against

Piwo klarowne w kolorze bursztynowym z obfita biala piana. Sa cytrusy, troche przypraw i nuty zywiczne. Czuc tez kwiaty i troche karmelu. Goryczka i wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Raczej wytrawne i słodowe w odbiorze. Przyjemnie sie pije ale nie powala.

Bottle at The North Camp, Farnborough. 16/08/16. Zilch aroma. Deep amber. Flat. Bright wide head which soon dies away. Smooth. Frothy. Sharp bitternes, but not overly so. Underlying sweetness. Decent.
