3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Clear golden amber with a cream head. Aroma of gooseberry, biscuit, passionfruit - v sav blancy. Light bodied. Tastes as it smells with firm slightly spicy bitterness. Wouldn’t have minded just a little more sweetness. Refreshing, nice balance of fruity flavours but neither hoppy enough to be just about them or with enough presence to be wholly satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served a clear golden color with a small head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and bit of caramel sweetness. Taste of so me caramel sweetness and bit of fruit, with a trace of grain in the background. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a bit of a creamy texture. Well balanced. Very enjoyable beer, nice flavor with a bit of character. Worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pick of the beers for me at Wig & Pen. Went straight to pints of this once I’d gone through the samples of each tap.
Pours a clear golden copper, with a small but thick off white head. Aroma is a pungent piney grapefruit, reminds me a lot of galaxy IPA from bridge road. Taste is tropical, with a dominant piney hop and some oak. Bitter finish. Beautiful!
Unless they had the kegs hooked up to the wrong taps, this is far better than the regular pale ale in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Wig & Pen. Arrived golden orange with an averaged sized, frothy white head which was mostly lasting. A tropical fruity hop aroma with strong notes of grapefruit, passionfruit, tangerines, sweet caramel malts and some intriguing earthy/woody notes (cedar perhaps?). Flavor was a moderate grassy hop bitterness with sweet biscuity malts, pineapple, dry nectarines, light notes of mango & passionfruit and a strong dry/grainy finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a good finish.
