Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear, yellow-gold with a fine, foamy white head. Ripe citrus nose, some marmalade, bit of straw. Medium sweet flavor with lightly doughy pale malts, jammy citrus, some sugar, mild bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly sweet finish with mellow hops, lots of jammy citrus, light hay and doughy malts. It’s a very tasty APA.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry and nicely hopped, and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a long lasting bitter finish with some sweetness. Overall a nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
