McNeillR (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2013
Pale, slight greyish haze and a white swirl of head. Dusty, soft lemon wooly nose. Initial taste is a zingy blanket, buzzing with fresh and unripened fruit. Almost salty edge to the finish, clammy/chalky at the top but an almost bretty avalanche sneaks in just in time for a superb mouthfeel finish. JohnRMurdoch (4828) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
This doesn’t pack limey crunch I’d hoped, especially for the citra involved, but the mouthfeel couldn’t be better matched for the lack of this and structure keep everything else in check.
Bottle, The Beer Hive
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy pale golden yellow, good foamy head. Strange musty spicy lemon biscuit aroma. Dry citrus biscuit grain flavour. Dry bitter citrus aftertaste. An unusual but good pale ale. jamestulloch (4063) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy pale golden body with a few chunky yeast flecks floating around. Medium white head that holds well and leaves nice lacing marks. Aroma of lemon sherbet, tangy orange, mango and fairy cakes. Sweet and tangy lemony flavour. Low bitterness. Medium body with an oily, almost creamy texture. Average carbonation. A decent American Pale Ale with a nice balance of sweet and sour flavours. EdKing (2576) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle at the brewery in the company of Harrisoni and HogTownHarry. Light pale amber, very subtle haze, bubbly white head. Nose is lemon and grapefruit citrous, flinty minerally, slight urine sourness, some freshly laid tarmac earthiness. Taste is very flinty minerally, light cereal grain husk, light citrous lemon and grapefruit bitterness, with some subtle sourness on the finish too.

August 24, 2013 - 330ml bottle consumed at the brewery. Bubbly with light floaties hazy gold, really solid creamy white lasting head. Bright aroma, light, good citra cattiness and citrus zest - appealing, just enough light tropical fruit to frame the hops. Taste - yep, lightly fruity (hint of apricot and green pineapple), catty with more dry citrus zest bitterness, a little alcohol presence, but nice a well-meshed. Average body, solid carbonation, medium-long finish, light palate coating - very drinkable, well-made.

Nice clear and clean pine aroma with modest tropical notes. Slightly thin and chalky in the mouth. OK but not outstanding. madmitch76 (24378) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013

Euston Tap. Bottle. Hazy gold beer with a tidy white head. Palate starts soft but turns minerally crisp. Fresh orange - grapefruit. Mild orange pith. Trace of lemon. Tangy and fresh with mildly creamy malt base. Finishes crisp. Effortless tasty drinking.
Bottle at home 24/08/13.
Hazed light golden with a mahoosive white head of bubbles.
Nose is grassy, mandarins, light grapefruit, floral hops, a little spice, touch of pine.
Taste comprises orange pith, mineral notes, earthy hops, light pine, grassy, light grapefruit.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with hop bitterness.
Decent APA but not top draw.
Footnote : - easy on the pour, there were some serious yeast bogies/globules in the final quarter, not pretty! KyotoLefty (10197) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle at the brewery. Orange glowing color, cloudy, with lace. Sharp Citra nose, orange, bread. Dry citrus flavors, flowers, a bit of stinky mango. Nice.
Leighton (21085) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear yellow-gold with outrageous effervescence and a super tight, pure white foam head. This beer probably has some of the strangest carbonation I’ve encountered. Lively with big bubbles such that it almost looks like floaties; interesting. The aroma holds dried lemon rind and straw. Light sweet flavor with a pronounced dry mineral character, bitter citrus rind, some grapefruit and tangerine. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Dry finish, moderately bitter, more lemon peel, dry and very pithy grapefruit and tangerine, well and dry pale malts, hints of hay. Pretty good.
