Abijen (1174) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Pours a golden orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity and bit cream. Tastes grapefruit, orange and pretty bitter. Nice! Average carbo, thin body and a very dry texture.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Tap @ The Kernel (Greater London). Hazy yellow/golden with a medium creamy white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is piney with juicy dank hops and some citrus/fruits. Taste is of resinous juicy hops, light citrus and fruity notes. Light sticky bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Dry finish. This is a great Pale Ale. One of the best I’ve tried yet along the best from Hill Farmstead. Incredibly tasty, dangerously drinkable and thirst quenching! So juicy, wow!

minutemat (886) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
Keg @ Tapped, Leeds. My notes say: "rubbish". From memory this had a pretty dulled, old citrus feel. Perhaps I need to try this in bottle.

Garrold (735) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Cloudy, pale gold. Thin, broken, filmy, white head. Juicy grapefruit. Tangerine. A light, freshly sawn, pine wood character. Mouthwatering. Taste is all that, but with more of the woody thing coming through. Light carbonation helps pronounce the juiciness. Finish is a bitterness that lasts, but also mellows. Corker.

Delicious. Lovely hop aromas, well balanced flavour, bitterness just about right, for me. I agree, perhaps somewhat thin but I’m being picky. Very tasty, I’ll have another. From cask at The Pelt Trader - served in superb condition.
