GBBF. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation provides a sting. Fresh hops provide further sting. Pine dominates but there is fresh juicy orange and other citric things. Semi dry finish with good fresh hop bitter linger.

Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at the Portland branch. Pours clear gold, mildly effervescent with a lingering, white cream head. The aroma gives off strong perfume notes, some bubblegum, citrus. Medium sweet flavor with balanced sweetness, more perfume, floral hops, mandarin orange, pale bread. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Decent hoppy finish, moderately sweet, further floral character. Not bad.

Draught, 6.2% at the brewpub. Good grapefruity hop aroma. Hazy copper colour. Small frothy white head. The flavour has a little grapefruit and caramel as many other APAs, but also a distinct teaish hop note. High bitterness, clean.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at GBBF (at 6%). It pours golden yellow, with a thin bubbly white head. The nose is grapefruit, tangerine, melon, orange, leaf, some manure and sweaty sock. The taste is straw, hay, resin, pine, citrus pith, grapefruit, light spice and some alcohol warmth, with bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly syrupy mouth-feel. Decent stuff, but I imagine this would be better with more carbonation (i.e. from a keg).
