4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Orange gold with big white head. There is an initial fruity nose with the promise of plenty of hops. This transfers in to the beer, the body is light and crisp, there is a biscuity malt, but the big star is the fruity hop flavours, there is a bitter orange alongside a sharp passion fruit type flavour, refreshing, bitter for an APA, I really liked it and proof, if it were needed, that American beers don’t necessarily have to go big.

Bottle at home. Pours clear orange with a large, foamy off-white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is peach esters, light herbal hops, and biscuit malt. Flavor is malt forward with medium hops and bitterness, light esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow pour with an crazy big white head. Aroma is smelly. Some light lemon and soapy hops. Flavor is a bit better...not much. Way too much carbonation. Light lemon notes and some watered down caramel malt. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lot of decent drinking bitterness. Good For an organic beer, and sesionable alcohol is appreciated. Lots of lace.

Bottled (One of my twelve lost (for now) notes, so this is as well as I remember). Light golden. Citrussy fruity hop. Quite light of body. No sweet crystal malts. Pleasant enough.
