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.

330ml bottle. Nonic glass. Bright gold, clear appearance. White & close crown. Intense citra aroma as well as hay, grass, pale malts & bread hues. Sweet malty upfront yields to increasing citric & floral biterness. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture & pine neddles on to the palate. Citric astringency & bitter finish. Slight resinous aftertaste.

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.
