ALLOVATE (3004) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Brilliant, orange amber on first pour. Hazed on second. Head is a plume of soapy, white suds Piney, resinous, spicy and herbaceous, whole hop nose inches stinging nettles, vine clippings, camphor, sap resin, lemon balm and pandan. Full on aroma for a modest strength ale. Quite piney and dry with a backbone of dusty malts and dried herbs on the palate. Creamy and foamy in feel with a moderate to light body. Camphorous and lasting, peaking bitterness rolls in every sip. Overall hogely resinous with a plump, hoppy aftertaste. Low esters, low fruit restrained to grapefruit notes and little else. Madly sessionable stuff. (50cL, BB 29/09/15, Luckies Liquor) TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle 500ml (AbM)Parmenion777 (277) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Slightly hazy golden color, small steady white head, some lace. Pineapple, citrus, overriped fruits in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Pineapple, citrus, orange peel in the fruity but also a bit dry flavor. LIght lingering bitterness. Pleasant.
Amber honey gold in colour with small white head. Floral and fruity with a nice orange citrus aroma. Good body, malty sweetness, some lacing, and a nice dry citrus bitter finish. R4N5H (1166) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2015

Draught, cask at the GBBF 2015 (London Olympia) on 14-Aug-2015. Golden amber colour with a medium sized white head. Floral pine and fruit aroma. Fruit and bitter flavour, oranges and a little grapefruit, with sweet malt and caramel. Nicely balanced. TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Pretty yeasty – wee bit like La Chouffe, say, in colour and clarity - but thoroughly West Coast/transatlantic in flavour.
Nose: Really pleasant orange/peach/melon, slight pine.
Body: easy-drinking, orange/caramel/peachy,
Finish: a hop kick at end and (med-?)long finish.
Overall: Nicely American, nicely mild APA; altogether now: #All the lad(d)ies / Who love “Independence” / Throw ya handz up at meee… #

Cask at GBBF 2015. Orange-golden,mbubbly head. Hazy. Orange,mpeach, biscuit nose, Amarillo? Very hoppy, citrus, orange, peaches, grass, pine, earth. Bready malts. Well done. EdKing (2576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Keg at The Lyric. Clear amber to chestnut brown beer with a large white foam head. Nose is very minerally, pine hop, caramel malt, citrousy, grapefruit. Taste is really flinty and chalky minerals with pine, kind of metallic, and then caramel, malty, citrous, grapefruit. Not really liking the heavy minerals in this. Chalk, flinky and pine kind of killing the other flavours. witthatsbier (564) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2015
