Draught @ Akkurat. Pours cloudy with a creamy white head. Hoppy! Grapey, piney... red orange. Long almost medicinal bitterness in the aftertaste. A touch of caramel. This must be one of the most bitter beers I’ve tried from britain.

Tap at The Euston Tap - 28/08/12. Clear golden amber with a thinnish white head. Nose of bitter grapefruit and hops. Tastes of bitter grapefruit, orange peel and fresh hops. Medium body and carbonation level with a sharp bitter finish. A well made beer.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxfordshire, Wednesday 12th September 2012 Pours golden with a small clean white head. Fruity, tasty beer with an impressive hoppy bite. The hops rip through leaving a slight dryness, they are really punchy, citrussy and tangy, this really is very good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Bottle from Cotteridge Wine; clear golden amber pour with thin white head, big grapefruit and pine hop aroma, the aroma comes through in the taste with slight caramel and good level of bitterness for an APA. Very enjoyable.

This is going down particularly well with some Digger Barnes. I’m going to return the favour by giving Owen some DFL. Lost Cause.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Had this many times at the Bat and always good on keg here. Never had in bottles tho as many here have... Always a pleasure this one. Easy, fruity goodness all round with that cheesy undercurrent that’s hard to nail. Hazy orange,sitting in a bright window on a summer’s afternoon. Funky fruit and summer breezes. Cool and still musky fruit pond in sunshade. Tickle on back of knees. Orchards on acid.

Keg at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy orangy colour with thin white head. Aroma is slight tropical fruit with a slight cat piss edge and some mild funkiness. It's pretty good. Some pineapple, grapefruit and a dry bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with small/medium lating white froth. The aroma is orange peel, citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Smells so good. Similar taste, one just gets some yeasty notes added to the rest. Dry palate, spicy touch. Medium body, good carbonation. Good job, very balanced.
