4.14/5 rDev +3.2%
Appearance: hazy light amber with a medium sized white head. OK lacing.
Aroma: fresh american hops, citrus, pineapple, hints of pine and grass. Aroma isn't very intense, but is very refreshing and pleasant.
Taste: typical american pale ale, but just a bit more maltier I guess. Decent bitterness, mildly fruity, some resin notes, slightly earthy finish. Dry.
Mouthfeel: medium to low carbonation, medium bodied.
Overall: an everyday pale ale. Very tasty and refreshing but doesn't knock your socks off.

Coming in a 330ml brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; bottled on 16/01/2014, served mildly-chilled in a straight pint glass.
A: pours a dark amber colour with light haze, coming with a very thin light beige foamy head with good retention, on top of mild but constant flows of carbonation.
S: like an American Pale Ale, aromatic with a good sweet pale malt backbone, in the aroma I could sense notes of lychee-ish and flowery hops as well as more piney elements, altogether so fragrant and juicy at the same time, while the pale malts provides a stable feed of sweetness in the background. Very nice.
T: nicely carbonated, the foretaste gives lots of impression of gristy pale malts with lightly nutty quality, followed immediately by a wave of juicy hops and spicy-tannic bitterness, underlined throughout by the lychee-shell like aroma – I wonder if Cascade hops are used in this brew? Mildly acidic notes go well with the otherwise lively bitter finish, while maltiness keeps its cool and renders just enough weight to buttress the other goodness throughout each sip.
M&O: very fresh comes the mouthfeel, well-conditioned in the bottle, superbly balanced, delicious and highly quaffable. To me this is a very very successful product, and I wish the quality will almost remain this good.

A 330ml bottle with a bottling date of May 2013. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label describes it as an American-style pale ale.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A very hazy orange-amber hue with medium carbonation. Produces a huge head of creamy white foam with good retention; this steadily subsides to a thick surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of bright, juicy hops with notes of grapefruit, lime, citrus, mild pine, white grape and faint tropical fruits. Underpinned by subtle caramel malt and earthy yeast. Simply amazing.
Tastes of intensely fruity hops with a dry, bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, melon, mild pine, faint tropical fruit, subtle caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Crisp and well-attenuated, followed by a strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and lightly spicy, with soft carbonation and good body. Hop oils stimulate the palate. Slightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, citrus and earthy yeast.
Impressive - an avalanche of hops on your tongue. Looks alright, if a tad yeasty, but the aroma and flavour are stunning. Fruity hops and a crisp bitterness; the definition of hoppiness. Decent body, though a shade more carbonation would have added texture. Lovely - I'd happy drink a barrel of it if I could. Well worth sampling if you have the chance.
