Cloudy orange colour. Good head and lacing. This smells very hoppy with orangey citrus notes. This beer has a nice malt backbone and a very bitter finish. It could easily be considered an American syle IPA in my opinion. It is, perhaps, more bitter than Punk IPA for instance. Absolutely delicious. very well hopped with an excellent level of malt. Abv is very low for a beer of such high taste levels. A great English take on an American Pale Ale and definitely overlapping with some self described IPAs. Comparable in excellence to Kernel Brewery Pale Ales. My favourite so far from this brewery.

My mark out of one hundred would be 90.

A 330ml bottle with no visible BB date (unprinted). Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. Cool label; described as an American pale ale.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A bright, hazy golden hue with plenty of floating sediment and low carbonation. Yields a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of juicy hops with hints of mandarine, lime, citrus, white grape, melon, guava, grass/hay, light caramel malt and earthy yeast. Fruity and delicious.

Tastes of fruity aromatic hops and yeast with a dry, bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, peel, citrus, white grape, guava, grass/hay, earthy yeast, subtle grainy malt, stewed hops and a twinge of funk. Well-attenuated, followed by a hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and lightly tingly, with soft carbonation and good body. Hop oils tease the palate, though the CO2 could be livelier. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops, spicy bitterness and earthy yeast.

Pretty good - a nice little APA. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by bright, fruity hops and dry yeast notes. Body is OK; shame about the carbonation. Some extra spritz would be good. Goes down easily - worth sampling if you come across it.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Expires August 2014.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, peach, and apricot aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and peach flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice fruit forward hop characteristics.

Review posted on themissingdrink.com

Visual: Hazy pale amber. Creamy white head. Good retention and lacing.

Nose: Citrus hops, floral undertones, with hints of resin. Lots of pine.

Taste: Bitter, piney hops. Earthy herbal notes. Slightly sour citrus flavours. Bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a creamy quality. Finish is odd – simultaneously dry and sticky.
