ganache (6152) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2018
Pint can. Nose very resinous, leafy greens suggesting dank, with lemon and more normal, subtle pine. Pour utterly clear, rich golden with a very large and very creamy/Orval meringue cream head. Great Belgian lace, and again, great sculpture possibilities in the long-lasting crown. Taste very dry, body thin and watery, but alcohol well-integrated, no hint of sugar, grassy, touches of grain and subtle astringency, green and leafy with floral, orange peel, oil, spice; full-throated bitterness but not excessive or extreme, lingers in the long and crisp finish with tangerine oiliness. Great bready malt. Well-executed and slightly off the beaten path, might just be the best 'session' APA I've had in years, really separates itself with superlative secondary features.

Oh boy I like this. Really nice crisp bready malts, clean. Dry finish. Bright fresh hops, a lot of citrus. Finish is lightly bitter. Really great balance and great hop profile. minutemat (6596) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2018
Can. Pours clear gold, rocky white head. Grapefruit nose. Pleasant, light, floral, hoppy character with plenty of grapefruit, some resinous elements and biscuity pale malt with a surprisingly light carbonation, almost watery in fact, but not necessarily off-putting. Yeah, it's a good, refreshing easy-drinking but not a life-changer. Beerwithwings (438) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2018
UPDATED: APR 10, 2018 Had on tap in a 6oz pour. Is a very decent pale ale. Goes down well. I avoided getting this when it was over in the UK and glad I did such a great beer JackMandarin (506) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2018
Can from Bridgend Services, Freuchie. Pours clear. Light amber. Tall, tight head that turns rocky and fades fast. Sweet, marmalade fruit. Grapefruit. Quite sweet. Light resin. Biscuit malt. Taste has a good dose of initial juicy sweetness. Lots of citrus, more orange and grapefruit in particular. A little tropicality. Medium to light bitterness. A little too much honey malts for me towards the finish but overall this is pretty tasty. Smooth mouthfeel. Decent weight. Softish carbonation. Nice.

mid-february canning, so fairly fresh. hazy medium golden pour with a small white cap offering some retention and lacing. spicy citrus, Cs if not anything else, very floral, even slightly perfumey, bitter herbs as well, light peppery resin, toasted cereals, but no caramel at all, if not some spicy toffee notes without any sweetness, clean fruity yeast action. moderate carbonation, light body, almost balanced spicy-citrusy finish. the return of west coasters. imdownthepub (15910) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2018
Canned, 473ml (American Pint) from Underboard in Leamington Spa, Warks. Gold with white head. This proved to be a crisp, hoppy number with some citrus, grapefruit notes, zesty, pleasantly sharp, there is a light vegetable note, easy on the palate and refreshing throughout the beer. Enjoyable. nearbeer (5790) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2018
Pint canned 01/31/2018. Clear orange-amber with lots of bubble strings supporting a half inch meringue head. Aroma of honey, pine resin, toast, pollen and a touch garlic powder. Tastes of lemongrass, kiwi fruit, resinous dank herb, garlic and mixed-citrus toffee. Light-plus bodied with a nice dry slant and a medium fizz level. Thanks Party Bob!

473ml can. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, pine, resin, floral, caramel, malts. Taste of citrus fruits, orange peel, pine, resin, caramel and grainy/biscuity malt, bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. rjplumer (1318) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2018 The aroma is sweet and floral. The body is golden with subtle amber hue. It has moderate bitter bite with a grainy malt finish. Smooth and drinkable.
