Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, - FEB 10, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a soft, white foam head. Brilliant aroma, the citra really shines through, with some orange and tangering and grapefruit in particular. Light to medium sweet flavor with some tasty pale malt backbone, light dry pine needles, further orange and tangerine, some suggestions of sugary white bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good, mildly resinous finish with moderate yeast notes, orange, dry grass and pine, melon, grapefruit. Very drinkable with a great, robust citrus character; a really juicy APA. One of (if not the) the best beers I’ve had from Howling Hops.

Bue à la pression. Couleur jaune clair trouble. Fine mousse blanche. Nez discret. Légère fraîche, palais sur le grain très facile à boire, finale amère et pointe de citron

Perfectly balanced. Hoppy flavour with a tropical counterbalance. Nice full body, flavour is consistent from start to finish with a creamy satisfying palette. Very very nice!

BeerViking (4980) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Cask at the Cock. Dark gold with a thin fine head. Bright tropical fruit nose leads into a palate with notes of pineapple, grapefruit and mango, plus a little melon in the drying aftertaste.

evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2016
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus, pine, some tropical fruit and a little sweetness in there with a bitter finish. Very tasty, 2 pints went down in no time.

MrTipple (5956) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2016
Grain and cereal malts, bitter citrus fruits, straw, floral hops. Slightly hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Sweet citrus fruits, tangerine, orange, some bitterness coming up, soft carbonation, medium bodied, bitter finish. Very nice APA, well-balanced, but could do with a bit more intensity. Keg at brewery, Hackney Wick.

Saeglopur (2292) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 1, 2016
Draught at Southampton Arms, London.
Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma with lots of passion fruit, flowers, pineapple, citrus, biscuit
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smooth, medium bitter, moderate dry, citric, fruity, floral, piney, a bit biscuity.

Really nice. Easy, clean and very fruity, with the passion fruit sticking out. Nothing outstanding maybe, but a really quaffable Pale Ale how I like it.

RichTheVillan (8110) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear golden yellow pour with a bubbly white head, aroma is gushing with citrus along with his pine friends, taste has some dank pine, tangerine, pleasant bitterness, biscuity malts.
