4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap at Kraftwork - Bright golden color, very polished with a thick, foamy white head. Aromas of grapefruit skin really kick it into the "American Pale Ale" genre. Crisp, sharp bubbles (a bit coarse on the palate) dominate the mouthfeel. Flavors of grapefruit are predominant, but not overly aggressive like some IPAs. Good balance with a clean, crisp and pleasant finish. This may be the best English brewed Pale Ale that I’ve had on my American IPA loving palate.

Poured a generous amount of foamy off-white. Has a pale golden appearance. Very good lacing. Aromas are very hoppy, strong citrus and fruity aroma, orangey. The flavours are abundant as well, with the hops very much present. Some more citrus type flavours, mango, orange peel, sweet malts. Very nice and smooth mouthfeel. A perfectly subdued hoppy presence makes this one a brew to have again.
