Bottle from GBBF 2013 drunk at home listening to Simon & Garfunkel. Clear amber colour thin lasting off white head. Slightly oxidised aroma. Some toffee, some very harsh, metallic hop flavour. Some hop. It’s fine, Just a little metallic and may be a touch oxidised from the journey across the pond. Some decent orange fruit. Fine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a slight white head. Aroma seems very floral with a possible citrus touch. Flavor starts very floral and then develops fruit that seems tropical. Then a little caramel is detectible. The malt’s a little unroasty for an APA, and tho it’s nicely hoppy, it’s not very bitter. On the other hand the bitter builds with time. Odd and tasty ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber body with a short white head. Juicy maraschino cherry / pear / fruit cocktail nose with lighter hints of tropical bubble gum and pine sap; leafy and grassy at times, and a little musty and sweaty game-y (animal hair), but that character seems to shapeshift back into a more typical Cracklin’ Oat Bran / bread / grain / toffee Caramel, Munich and Vienna malt character. Sweet and oily with medium carbonation. Nothing to change your world here, just a lot of resins and juicy hops and a typically-rough Widmer malt texture with their grating artificial carbonation. Chalky + sugary = sweet tart candies in the finish.

355mL. Pours a clear, lighter orange. Medium off white foam with decent retention and rockiness. Aroma is delicate floral, citrus. Taste is bland, papery with some heftier rich butter biscuit backbone. But soapy, bland body distracts and it ultimately tastes like nothing.
