Scopey (15427) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle on a boiling hot day outside Partizan. It pours hazy pale golden with a small white head. The nose is earthy, juicy tangerine, grapefruit, mango and a touch of straw. The taste is crisp, smooth, orange, tangerine, pithy grapefruit, pine, light earth and straw with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, tasty and utterly drinkable. I destroyed a few of these in a row no problem. madmitch76 (25247) - , 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.
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. harrisoni (19157) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Pale gold orange hazy, lasting thickish white head. Tasty enough APA, decent fruit. Some sherberty hop. Yes some light orange fruits. Tasty enough. Very light Satsuma flavour. Nice though. JohnRMurdoch (4997) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
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.

Bottle, Luvians, St Andrews, Fife. Vivid hazy orange pour with a small lingering white head. Grassy hop in the snout in tandem with some nice citrus. The flavour unfolded in similar fashion with tasty tropical fruit notes leading to a dry bitter finish. Very drinkable and hard to fault. Leighton (22019) - 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.

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! jamestulloch (4259) - 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. McNeillR (2329) - 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.
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.
