beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2012
Cask @ The Wharf Winter Cask Ale Festival. Pours a golden yellow with a small white lace. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight tropical fruits, grassy notes and is fairly juicy with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the nose with nice juicy hop flavors, again orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight topical fruits and grassy notes with those sweet malt flavors. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice and sessionable APA.

ACD (652) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 27, 2013
Cask pint at Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Light Amber pour. Orange, light caramel, and herbs on the nose. Pithy grapefruit comes alongside the orange in the taste - quite juicy initially but then overtaken by light caramel and woody malt notes and a bit of pine. Lingering earthy, herbal bitterness as well as residual pine flavour. Tasty stuff.
