From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and light citrusy. Smooth fruity, light grainy. Smooth fruity and citrusy. Light grapefruity and light citrusy. Vague grassy finish.

Pours a hazy light golden colour with thin white head. Fruity, white-wine like aromas of passion fruit and grapefruit with some pine. Taste is a nice fruity blend of citrus fruits, pine, a touch of caramel and some bready malt flavour with a firm bitterness. Finish is a crisp, lingering bitterness. Fantastic American Pale Ale.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2017 Bottle from BH. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Pineapple and cut grass aroma. A bitter-sweet, piney, fruit punch. Very nice for a 4.1 pale ale.

A really clear golden looking beer. Hoppy and refreshing pale ale. Slight citrus flavours come out in the beer. Overall a very nice beer from one the best brewerys around!

simontomlinson (591) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Rocky white head stayed on a translucent, still, light golden body. Hoppy, citrus & bitter aroma. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate but sharp & tingly on the back. Dry. Very bitter tastes, grapefruit, pith, under ripe fruit, citra & bitter citrus.

Ktwse (5472) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of fruit, honey, light citrus, tangerine. Taste is mild bready bitter with a light sweetness before a lingering bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

Boothman (23) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2017
Pours copper with a thick-ish white head which lasts. Smells sweet and citric. Taste initially raspberry/redcurrant but quickly overpowered by the Citra hops. Fairly sweet, good body, quite bitter. A solid all-rounder.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, white head. Smell of grapefruit, zest, hints of tropical fruits, herbs and spices, light malts. Moderate sweet, alot of herbs and spices, juicy citrus, grapefruit, zest. Medium bitter, zesty tail. Very nice

chimpgibbon (560) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Keg at Cask Pimlico. Nice light session pale. Initial sniff is pretty doughy and chewy but the citrus comes through in the mouth. Well on the bitter side and not exactly bursting with citra character but pretty drinkable.

Pyrmir (6210) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2017
On tap at O’Connors. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is hoppy citrus, pale malt with light caramel. Taste is similar, citrus forward hops, pale malts, faint bread and light caramel.
