Bottle 0.33l from ales by mail. Pours a hazy light amber with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Aroma is a fruit cocktail of citrus, grapefruit, mango. Great. Taste lacks aroma somehow. Good bitterness, citrus, bitter orange, grapefruit. Bitterness is overwhelming so the brew is a bit one dimensional. Still a really good APA.
