nulptr (114) - - APR 21, 2014
bottle from oddbins, bbe mar (20?)15. pours amber/dark apricot. some banana but mainly passion fruit giving way to gentle grapefruits and plenty of sugary sweetness, nicely balanced by the hops, which otherwise take a back seat here. not sure what is supposed to be particularly American about this? still, another fine, balanced outing from Stewarts.

Cokemonkey11 (607) - - APR 30, 2016

Aroma: caramel, fruity hops, peaches, sweet oranges. Appearance: clear amber, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: citrus, tangerine, sweet orange, molasses, light pine. Overall: very nice APA, well-balanced, fairly complex in both aroma and palate. Pint at the Snooty Fox, Canonbury.

Leighton (19188) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Royal Mile Whiskies - London. Pours clear copper-gold with a massive, billowing off-white head; this beer is seriously over-carbonated. The hops seem a little faded in the nose - some hints of drying tangerine, pine needles, crispy pale malts. Light sweet flavour with crackery sugars, mellow bitter pine, some leaves, very faint caramel, some citrus fruits. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet finish with more crackery pale malts, some peach, melon, nectarine, subtle piney bitterness. Just OK.

JohnCook101 (535) - - JUL 31, 2015
Clear light copper, small off-white head that disappears to nothing pretty quickly. Aroma is hoppy, citric and slightly metallic. Flavours of citrus, light caramel, a little pine. Moderately sweet, strong hoppy bitter finish. Really nice.

DuffMan (9645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle, shared with Jordan. Medium orange with some fine sediment at the end of the pour. Light caramel and biscuit malt, orange citrus, moderate bitterness. Nice enough.
