Like the previous reviewer I bought this on cask at a Wetherspoon's pub in Banbury U.K. Brewed by the original team but at an English brewery and served on cask. Do I put it here or on the Everard's listing?

Fantastic full hop aroma.
Taste was grapefruit at the start but finishing with a more caramel almost butterscotch flavour.
Dry at the end but rather watery.

Interesting but I am sure that it would be better served in the original format.

Served on-tap at Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, NC

A: Pours a clear copperish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and some some orange + brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a very large patch of thin film and a medium sized ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malts with light to moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of caramel malts with just a touch of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a short amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: A little more aggressively hopped for an APA, especially a session APA, which was surprising in a good way. Enjoyable and easy to drink - refreshing after a day of hard work moving my brother-in-law and his girlfriend into new places.

Had this on 2014-09-20 at the brewey.

A - Clear copper with a shirt tan head and light lace

S - Nice burst of hop floral and citrus

T - Nice. Fresh hops, citrus and a breast malt body. Balanced but finished with spice and bitterness.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Refreshing.

O - Lots of flavor for a session able brew. Well done.

Special ediiton brewed at Everards in conjunction with Wicked Weed for sale at Wetherspoons. Had a half pint in my local 'spoons in Helensburgh.

This is a dark amber colour with a white head and a strong fresh and sweet cirtic nose with more than hint of orange. The feel is surprisingly flat for a cask beer in 'spoons (so more like cask beers I've had elsewhere then....).It certainly isn't as sweet as its aorma suggests, instead having a bitter lemon/ornage/leafy hop flavour which is really very good indeed. The taste really did linger on my tongue (to the extent that it seemed to ruin the half pint of Deuchars IPA which followed, although maybe that beer had deteriorated).I would definitely recommend it though (I wish I'd bought a whole pint and left the Deuchars alone).
