3.81/5  rDev -1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a large lasting mousse-like head.
Nose shows floral and citrussy hops with some apple and peach blossom too. Light sweet malt underneath.
Less fruity flavours but with some grapefruit and spicy hops. A little sweet clean malt followed by a pretty assertive bitterness.
Carbonation is too high.

On-tap. ½ pt glass @ L´Espumossa (Barcelona). Brass color, chill haze appearance. Off-white froth leaves spots on sides. Great aroma profile shows tropical fruit, resins, citrics, mild toasted malts, hay & cereal grains. Flavors as expected from aromas. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Velvet palate with hints of nutmeg, lemon zest & grapefruit. Dried & slight spicy touch arises & lingers into a long bitter, resinous & citric finish. Fruits & green wood on the aftertaste. Resinous & flavorful !!

3.79/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into Duvel Goblet
Unfiltered orange colour with thick white head which dissipates slowly leaving a little bit of lacing.

S - Cascade, Citrus and Grassy notes. Not much oatmeal. Almost like an IPA

T - Weak to start off with but as the bubbles help the flavour, cream cheese, sweet citrus hop finishing with a piney bitterness

M - Very Carbonated but goes down well.

Overall a good american pale ale

3.69/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy orange with fast-fading taupe froth. 3.75
Husk, lots of orange zest but a whiff of sewage. 3.5
Hay and toast, lots of Cascade citrus, then some herb and twig. 3.75
Peach jam on toast finish and throbbing minty linger.
Smooth enough, almost medium, slight cling. 3.75

Casacde zip saves a dull beer. Has the same issue as Goodbye Blue Monday - oaty smoothness seems to muddy the hop character. (Palisade is meant to be some pretty subtle floral + grass, anyway.) Nothing special, and still not impressed by Siren. 3.75

3.68/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a murky light brown colour with a small white head.

Smells delicately sweet, hints of golden syrup with a nice dose of fruity hops thrown in.

Tastes fairly watery, still hints of fruit and citrus though.

Overall an okay effort but disappointing.

Looks fine, smells fine, the taste is only faintly of oatmeal and much more of an IPA, the moutfeel is good, overall an okay beer.
