Hazy pale gold beer, little white head. Palate is minerally crisp and with light dryness. Good grapefruit hops with lesser bitter marmalade and pith. Thin clean malt underneath. Finishes crisp. Clean and refreshing and ironically a little hoppier than it’s big brother.
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of harsh gooseberry bush, raspberries(!), grass, mango and some herbal notes. Flavour of strong citrusy floral hops, grass, herbs, mango and hay. Light bodied, high carbonation and a dry, long lingering bitter finish. Really pleasant bitterness, but slightly not as refreshing as the CW version. Beersiveknown (5300) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 10, 2013

Hazy pale amber, herbal peach and pineapple. Medium body, fairly bitter, dry peach skins, passion fruit.
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours lightly hazy gold with a tight, creamy white head. Lots of dried, pithy citrus in the aroma, some tangerine and grapefruit especially. Light sweet flavor with dry citrus, minerals, dry and lightly dusty pale malts, some pine needles. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Moderate dryness to finish, more pithy citrus fruits, a bit of sand, vaguely biscuity pale malts. Tasty and very drinkable APA.

Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Hazy orange gold colour lasting beige head. Late summer evening sun and The Cure. Soft easy drinking yet lovely APA. Exactly what I want an APA to be. Drinkable in mouth, yet some really interesting and flavoursome hops. Grapefruit, orange and tropical fruit melange. Outside of Cascade and Amarillo this beer has my favourite hops in. Some sherbert on finish. Some lasting bitterness too. Yes I find Andy’s beers a bit more bitter than Kernel’s which I think is a good thing, I like a hoppy beer to be bitter. An almost perfect modern APA. saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle @ Beder Grillsmagning. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, malt, pine and hops. teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - AUG 8, 2013
33cl bottle from the brewery. It pours clear light golden with a minimal white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy and all on the fruity sweet-ish side of the coin. No piny notes but strong apricots and pineapple. Taste is quite sweet for an APA as well but intense bitter at the same time and well balanced. More fruit comes through alongside some resiny and biscuity notes. Medium bodied with silky texture and low carbonation. Very balanced and refreshing, but very close to an IPA in complexity and depth of flavors (and ABV as well). Excellent. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle from Borough Wines. The pour’s hazy orange with a small head. The nose is quite sweet. Loads of tropical fruits. Plenty of mango, pineapple, orange, sea grass. Sweet fruit smoothie taste. More mango and pineapple. Bright citrus. A bit of salty mineral. Pleasing, if not particularly clean on the palate. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, pretty nice.

330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy yellow amber, reasonable head. Tropical fruit biscuit & hop aroma. Lime hop flavour, Watery with very bitter aftertaste. Not Partizan’s best but still good.
