Bottle from a friend. Colour was very hazy yellow amber with a thin bubbly head. Nose is classic simcoe. Not my favourite hop. Sharp citrous, flinty, hard bitter hop. Taste is minerally, hard grapefruit and lemon citrous, flinty. I just find it too bitter and minerally hard. No soft fruit in this.

Bottle at the Black Dove, Kemptown, Brighton, Saturday 8th March 2014 Pours hazy light/mid gold with a white head. Sweet citrus is the key feature on the aroma with sweeter fruits such as orange coming through. A similar theme continues in the taste department, its a very enjoyable pale.

330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in a goblet glass. Bottled on 29-11-2013. Pours a pale golden colour, slightly hazy, with an average off-white fluffy head. Lots of bubbles streaming from the base of the glass, The nose is dominated by citrus notes (blood orange, mandarin, a bit of lemon peel), pine needles, bready malts and definitely a "catty" presence as well. Quite light and delicate in the mouth, with a very mild bitterness that doesn’t last very long at all. Just like the nose the aftertaste is fruity and a bit piney/resinous Perhaps too fizzy, light to medium body. Not a bad drop, but not my favourite APA from Partizan.
