SlackerMads (1574) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle, bottle date 2013-08-21. Light hazy golden with a medium sized creamy white head. Good lasting and lacing. Fresh hoppy nose, promising. Flavour is floral, grassy, light peach/melon things. Some citrus/grapefruit notes and white bread. Medium body, light/medium bitter with a light dry finish. Super drinkable and fresh, I could pound this all day.

Leighton (10894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours a surprisingly clear gold, lightly effervescent, with a fairly large, frothy white head. The aroma holds lots of grapefruit and other pithy citrus. Light sweet flavor with dried citrus, lemon rind, grapefruit, grass, dry pale malts, sandy hay. Light bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Mostly clean to finish with slight piney resins and mellow grassy bitterness, some dry and somewhat bready pale malts, further rindy citrus and touches of cat pee. Pretty solid APA.

allmyvinyl (3193) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Sourced, St. Pancras Station. Hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Big grapefruit and piney hop aromas. Big bitterness on the taste, and a little light sweet following. Medium bodied, creamy texture, gentle carbonation. Bitter finish, just a touch too bitter for the strength for me. Good beer though.
