JohnRMurdoch (5210) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 21, 2018
Can from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer. Orange amber, good head. Cereal tangerine aroma. Leafy bready orange flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Solid if not outstanding.

AWS9 (754) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2018
Draft. Kinda boring pale gold appearance without any head. Nice, sweet hops aroma. Bit tangy. Easy finish, but hops all around. Solid, if basic, IPA.

Mr_Pink_152 (5922) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2018
Tried at the Oarcel Yard Kings Cross. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma grassy and light citrus. Light bittersweet taste. Medium body.

AshtonMcCobb (7095) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Can from Appellation Wines Comely Bank. Appearance - golden with a very generously fluffy head. Nose - light mango and pungent plant stalks. Cannabis. Taste - more mango, guava too. Still pungent overripe fruit, strong resin notes. Palate - close to medium bodied considering the style. Creamy through the middle and nice bitterness on the finish. Overall - the best of the three for me.

4.2
Benters (154) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with average carbonation and a thin white head. Big fruity aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, hops very much front and centre. Taste follows the nose, with a blend of citrus, tropical fruit and grapefruit flavours with hints of caramel from the malt, followed by a clean, piney hoppy bitterness. Really enjoyable APA, packs in a huge amount of flavour for just 4.3% ABV.
