Light haze on this gold - amber beer. Tidy off white head. Palate is light, crispy and semi dry. Lovely clean fresh hops. Bitter floral notes. Mild skunk. Marmalade orange and a little mango. Tagerine pith. Mint. Trace of lemon. All on fresh clean malt. Semi dry finish with a little fresh hop sting. Delicious!

Bottle from Chester Beer and Wine, Hoole. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a one finger thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, orange zest and grapefruit. Taste is mango, orange, grapefruity herbal hops with a fruity dry finish. Nicely carbonated and silky mouthfeel. Awesome as always, and well appreciated after three weeks of non-stop work!

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2013
500ml bottle- all of it, bits included. Beautiful fresh squeezed grapefruit, pine sap, intense flowers, almost patchouli nose. Lean and punishing with an iron-like richness; soap and flowers, G+T dryness, husk, greenery. Fairly massive bitterness subsiding into biscuit crumbs and a dab of honey. Finely misted orange with a low white head. Almost too much.

Bottle, Spring 2013 from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Slightly hazy golden pour, crowned with a bubbly white head. Enticing nose containing some lovely fruit. Flavour was piney hop, citrus and a little sweet malt. Dried out towards the finish. All told, a cracking APA that is oh so drinkable.
