Very pale golden-straw colour. The aroma is very citrusy and orangey. A bit of light resin and a bit of light lemongrass and pepper as well. A little bit of zestiness and sweet citrus. Fairly assertive bitterness. A little bit of lemon peel and some white pepper. Well-balanced and quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bang-on APA style, good citrus bitterness. Golden, good head, good hop aromas. A bitterness in the 60 range, years ago what would be called by many an IPA. Above average mouthfeel, satisfying. A bit of a palate shredder in bitterness, so not for everybody. Very flavourful; very drinkable.
