JohnCook101 (535) - - APR 20, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a good smooth white head. Good floral hoppy aroma. Citrus flavours, sherbet, plenty of hops, floral notes and perhaps a touch of honey. Well carbonated, perhaps a bit much so, but otherwise excellent.

Little aroma, no great mouthfeel but spice and tangerine are there. Bitter finish and warm but lacks any sweetness from the malt. Not the best Thornbridge.

Faint sweet malty hoppy smells, and i mean faint. Taste is sweet and inoffensive, watery and mild flavours. Almost boring but it is pleasant enough for a pint

3 months old bottle thx Alex for giving me this rating, youll probably end up regretting this later on. A: citrusy, light caramel, a touch of grapefruit. App: clear light copper smallish white head good lacing. T/p: med body with short to med bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: ok, Im a retard and I speak french. Cool name! That said, this beer offer a classic feel of the style. I would compare it to a SNPA. Decent but I prefer the newer and Frutier type of APA.

Bottle(bb date 07/10/17) pours beautifully clear gold with a white head. Aroma of pine,lemon,grapefruit ,tangerine & some fresh bread. Taste is bitter lemon,grapefruit ,tangerine,pine & some Bready ,biscuity malt. Light bodied & well carbonated (maybe to gassy) the finish has light pine ,bitterness,dryness & more fading hop flavours. Well made but other English APAs give you more flavour.

Pours golden color, clear, almost brilliant, with long lasting white head. Aroma: intense hop notes which takes on citruses, hint of pine, peaches, supported with biscuit like malts aroma. Flavor is very similar, with biscuit, toffee like malt backbone, which is pretty well balanced wih hop notes, mentioned above by aroma. Finish is slightly dry, bitter and lingers in aftertaste. Body is moderate medium, texture soft, carbonation medium to high.
