3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy copper-orange color with a large frothy off white head that leaves a some lacing in my glass, citrus and fruity aroma. Apple, pear and caramel flavors with a mild hop bite, medium body with a creamy and soft mouthfeel, finishes on the sweet side, a decent session IPA.
Tasted this at the Last Post , Paisley (JDW) in May 2000. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear russet in colour with a thick white head. Strong floral hops noted in the long aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and goodlacing throughout. Mixed malts gives a heavy robust digestive biscuit base with toffee and currant fruit notes. Strong hop resins evident in the floral aftertaste, giving a strong dry bite. Orange oil and soft highland toffee noted in the sweet malty finish. An excellent American IPA and well recommended.

Cask (Standing Order JDW, Southampton) - Dark golden/amber in colour. Nicely hoppy aroma with grapefruit standing out. Hoppy and lightly fruity taste with the grapefruit notes giving a rather bitter finish. Not bad but a bit watery. It’s a shame this brewery has gone under.

Cask at the Eastbourne Beer Festival, 9th Oct 2008. Amber, no head. Citrus hop aroma with lots of grapefruit. Taste is similar - very refreshing but also balanced. Sharp finish. Truly refreshing summer golden ale that would be perfect after you’d worked up a sweat. Unfortunately it seems I caught the last appearance as the brewery closed in November :( jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2008

Hoppy aroma with sweet citrus and apple. Yellow color, off-white head, fair lace. Light sweet, light sourness underneath, bitter, iodine, peaty, hint of citrus. Very interesting but low drinkablity.

BCA from Centurion Vintners, Stroud. Amber with a big, foamy white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit, apricots and earthy malt. Full mouth feel with a slightly sweet malt flavour, with some caramel and a mouth puckering citric hop finish. Very good.
