look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Coming in a 330ml brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; BB 06/14, served lightly-chilled.

A: murky dark amber colour, coming with low level of carbonation & a thin fluffy head.
S: aromatic Cascade-like hops abound, with citrus & flowery scent as well as ripe guava & “stinky” yeasts &/or pale malts.
T: leather-ish stinky esters come in abundance, on top of pale malts & a rather restrained fruity hop backbone. Not quite bitter in the end, but a touch of acidity is not to be missed.
M&O: softly carbonated, med-bodied, not very hoppy and a somewhat yeasty take on the style. (577 characters)

Poured from a can. Cloudy gold in colour, smells of citrus and floral hops with a hint of malt. Earthy and fresh hops dominate the flavour palate on this APA. Hoppy with a dry, moderately bitter finish.

Would I buy this beer again? Yes. (237 characters)

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. (1,349 characters)

Poured from a can. Much different labelling than the graphic here. Good frothy head. Aroma very hoppy. Taste excellent. Now available in off licences in Midlands Ireland. Would I buy again, yes definitely (205 characters)

Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows floral, spicy and citrus-like hops by the truckload with soft clean malt underneath.
Flavours are just as hoppy. More citrus, spicy notes and some pine. More clean malt underneath in a supporting role. (252 characters)

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. (368 characters)
