4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL bottle BBE: 28.08.16. Chilled. Pours a pinkish copper body with high haze and a medium, lasting, loose/frothy yellowish head. High intensity hop-forward nose, bursting with ripe apricot. Undertones of lime, grapefruit, resin and hay, with some earthy notes. Very spicy on the tongue, there’s a light, sticky sweetness, a light hoppy sourness and a medium sharp bitterness. Full-bodied with an abrasive texture, high carbonation and a long, developing finish. Certainly not just another pale ale, this has loads going on - the more you drink, the more you notice. If any criticism, the taste buds probably aren’t excited enough to support such a weighty body, but delicious nonetheless.

Definitely more UK than a US pale ale. Nice mouthfeel, easy drinker. I really like the sweetness from the caramel malt addition.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy gold/ orange with a small white head. Gentle aromas of resinous hops, and a taste typical of American-style IPAs. Grapefruit, pine resin and apricots are all there in the taste. There is an underlying slightly metallic thinness from the oats as well as some maltiness from the barley. Dry finish. A nicely balanced beer, but a little thin in the mouth.
