Very hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and semi dry, slightly soft. Fine minerally carbonation. Nice orange and grapefruit peel hops .Balanced by sweeter lime and floral things. Some pithy bitterness kicks in. Finishes semi dry with more citrus peel bitterness. Nice complex PA.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2013
500ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Hazy orange gold colour lasting thick ivory coloured head. Tropical fruit and grapefruit aroma. Good mouthfeel. I means it’s a hell of a smack in the face of flavour. I think since they moved to the new brewery they’ve got the body of the Pale Ales better. Good firmness. I mean just so much flavour on the swallow. Light bitterness yet it’s there on the finish and it builds. Big sweet tropical fruits. Amazing really. Just I don’t know anywhere that does beer this good.

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Many thanks to Bruce for the local freshness. Pours hazy, deep gold with a light foam head. Yeah, typically delicious. Plenty of dry, pithy citrus, some rindy bitterness, delicate pale malt sugars. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Bright. Clean, slightly flinty finish with further citrus rind, orange, grapefruit. Lovely.
