On tap at the brewpub.

A: Served a clear golden color with a small head that fades to nice lacing.

S: Aroma of citrus and bit of caramel sweetness.

T: Taste of some caramel sweetness and bit of fruit, with a trace of grain in the background. Nice bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, smooth with a bit of a creamy texture. Well balanced.

O: Very enjoyable beer, nice flavor with a bit of character. Worth a try.

From notes, Reviewed as part of a Wig-and-Penathon tasting Sat Oct 1st , between myself and mrs heygeebee

Noted as 'hopedoed' - a device that combines the use of a hop back and a Sierra Nevada 'Torpedo' hop vessel. (!)

Pours a golden straw. Half finger head.

Aromas of floral hops, EPA style.

Taste is much more a hybrid EPA/APA style, with citrus/lemon coming to the fore.

Crisp and sessionable.

There I was thinking that I had reviewed all of the Wig & Pen's regular line up and it turns out that one of their best regular beers was missing from the database. Time to fix this I think.

Clear amber colour with a rocky, creamy, off-white head. Decent head retention and plenty of lacing.

Light passionfruit and mango aroma with some sweet malt notes. Not bad but it lacks a bit of punch.

Sharp, fruity hop flavour with some nice creamy malt to back it up. Well balanced.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Fine.

A nice, bright Pale Ale but the aroma lets it down.
