3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Euston Tap on 14 January 2013. Pale gold colour. Loads of citrus throughout with the emphasis on grapefruit. Very dry and very bitter. Lots of punch. Not exactly subtle or finely balanced maybe, but I enjoyed it a lot.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Euston Tap. It pours golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is pithy citrus, orange, tangerine, apricot, hay and resin. The taste is assertively bitter, resinous, pine, straw, pithy citrus, pepper and grass with a pretty bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice bitterness. A tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours perfectly clear, light gold with a fine, creamy white head. Somewhat dank citrus nose, some day-old urine, wet grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with sturdy bitterness, some grass, pee, pine, pale malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately resinous on the finish with a bit of juicy pine, grapefruit, ripe orange and grass. A ballsy little APA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(cask@Catford Bridge Tavern, SE London) Gold in colour with medium white head, medium in body and good long lasting lacing. Aroma/taste is very hoppy with prominent grapefruit on the palate, and other mixed citrus notes, mineral biscuit malt, pine and good bitter finish. Refreshing and highly drinkable, really liked this and hope to try it again soon (D16)
