3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BottleDog London and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting thin ivory coloured head. It’s a good looking beer. Some toffee some pepper on the aroma and some grapefruit. Fullish in mouth, caramel, tangerine and grapefruit on the finish. Bitterness is mostly peppery. It’s good. Easy drinking. Very lasting finish. Good APA. Very drinkable but with enough interest to make you think about it a bit more. Very peppery.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Review for thebeerguy.
Expect early fruity flavours made of Strawberry, Raspberry, Lychee and summer fruits. This is then taken on by a biscuity caramel malt with touches of hay too. Then the hops fight back with their bitterness and bring back the fruit flavours from before. This mixes with the malty flavours and blasts around your mouth.
