Brewed using US alpha hops with a decent I.B.U. of 45 for its strength of 4.9% ABV it has the characteristics of the style with a strong grapefruit and citrus aroma leading to a clean slightly dry bitterness that lasts! Not as in ya face as your typical brash American but certainly no shrinking violet either. Enjoy!

Bottled. Ambery golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is bready and a bit dusty maltiness along with some slight caramel, zest and mild herbal and berryish notes. Flavour is quite similar, but more dominating in a kind of fruity way.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
14th Mar 2015: 500ml bottle at home during a mini rating session with myself. Poured into an Abbot Ale badged glass tankard, nice clear amber body, the head a swiftly fading affair. The nose and initial taste was caramel sweetness, then the citrus and bitterness bites. Refreshing, the finish being slightly dry. If you could get a ’Toffee Grapefruit’ on a stick at the fair, it would taste like this.

Martin243 (828) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Pint at the Duke of Welly, Newcastle. This has developed a bit of a reputation in these parts, but it’s taken me a while to try it. Fine golden slightly hazy body, with a tight white head. Assertive grapefruit aroma. Citrus flavour with some well balanced malted milk biscuit notes. Clean sharp and refreshing, with a gently astringent finish. More subtlety than many a bombastic APA.

Slightly hazy copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma is malty and light. Sweet malt flavours give way to loads of grapefruit. Slightly resinous. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Pretty good.

BeerViking (2874) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Cask at Pig’s Ears, amber with a lacing head, nose is biscuity with a touch of spicy hops. Perhaps a couple of degrees C too warm. Malty body with caramel and toffee, plus a dry grapefruity bitter overlay. Halfway between APA and English bitter, maybe.

SaintMatty (5708) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
500ml Bottle - Amber with a foamy head. Toffee, peach and a hint of pine in the aroma. Hoppy, tangy and slightly fruity taste with notes of grapefruit, peach, toffee and dried apricot.
