Pours a lovely golden orange with a thin white head. Nice dry hopped American style IPA which dominates the aroma and pursues the taste throughout the smooth drinking experience up front which develops into a dry finish. A really enjoyable beer that really gets the American IPA style right (and at a good price!).

Bottle @ The Earl of Essex. Cheers to Leighton for the pour! The appearance is medium gold with a big white head. The aromaís dried grass, some bretty funk, driftwood, and marshmallow pie. The taste is strong brett, wood, light lemon peel. Chalky yeast. Some earthy grass and dirt. This basically tastes like a hoppy saison. Itís interesting to see how the infectionís changed this beer! An interesting outcome.

Leighton (21074) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle shared at the Earl of Essex, London, pre-Zwanze release. Pours cloudy yellow with a HUGE, white foam head. Big brett-esque aroma, some straw, lemon and poop. Light to medium sweet flavor with big poo character, lemony plastic, grass. Light to medium bodied with mouth-filling, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with some lemon rind. There is lots of brett and farmyard character here, but Iím not sure itís intentional. This beer is more like a saison than an APA. Very nice, but, yeah.

JohnRMurdoch (4824) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle from Great Grog. Very hazy amber brown colour, reasonable head. Biscuit, resin tropical & citrus frut aroma. Citrus hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Another good Summer Wne pale ale.

Refreshing and nicely balanced bitter. Most enjoyable. Had at Cherry Reds beer festival.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy orange amber, thick rocky white head fades to a thin film. Pungent, resinous juicy tropical fruits on the nose - passion fruit, citrus, pineapple, gooseberry. Nice pithy dry palate, slightly herbal, lots of bitter grapefruit, puckeringly dry finish. Tasty.

DanielBrown (4499) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells particularly yummy - sweet, fruity hops. Itís rather dry. Finish is rather dry. Apart from the Arabian peninsular-style finish, itís a refreshing pale ale.

4.1
zacgillbanks (5118) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with sweet tropical juicy fruit flavours and a sharp, slight woody bitter finish.
