Almost clear golden with moderate off white edgeing.
Nose is citric zing, bitter orange, earthy hop notes, citric sherbets.
Taste comprises apricot, bitter orange, hops apparent, mandarin, light grapefruit.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close.
Decent enough hoppy blonde, not sure this warrants classifying as an IPA though!

Craft 100 at Craft Clapham. Cask. Somewhat murky gold beer, residual white head. Palate is light with modest fine carbonation. Light mats, sweetish. Touch of banana ester. Light marmalade, trace of fresh orange. Light finish, quite a strong citric peel linger. Interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craft 100. It pours hazy gold with minimal head. The nose is sticky orange, juicy, tangerine and marmalade. The taste is juicy citrus, good bitterness, peppery grapefruit, marmalade, straw and light resin with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation. A little sticky. Not an esb by any measure. Solid bitterness though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity pour at Beer Rebellion, Gipsy Hill. Pours an orange amber with a thin white head. Aroma has a hint of b.o. and a little veg alongside a little caramel sweetness. Light body, not much carbonation, a bit thin. There’s a little b.o. here, a touch of iodine too. There’s some marmalade, twigs, lemon leading to a grapefruity, dry bitter finish. It’s OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours hazy gold with a fine, lingering white cream head. Sweet orange citrus in the bose, some simple white bread. Medium sweet flavor with white bread, white sugar, some melon, orange and grapefruit, hints of dirty pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. A bit more earthy bitterness in the finish, with more vasic pale malts, white bread, some tangerine. A very elementary IPA, but not altogether bad.
