Very Good
Notes: Golden, refreshing and hoppy, with a sweet
Clean malt base to balance the flavours. The
New world hops produce an explosive bouquet,
With tropical and citrus aromas accompanied
By notes of passion fruit and grapefruit rind.

3.09/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

L- Mid gold, slightly hazy, pours with 5mm white head that's holding well.
S- I could smell it from two foot away when popping the cap; contemporary fruit notes from the hops. Up close I get a combo of peach and grapefruit.
T- The taste follows the Smell^. It's quite dry, but the hopping is not OTT as in some beers of a similar style these days. But you still need to welcome a style that comes with the taste of quite prominent fruits.
F- Pretty light and easy-going at 3.7%. If the taste works for your palate it'd work at lunchtime or as a sessionable beer.
O- A contemporary/'hipster' style of beer at the lighter end of the ABV% scale. I now read the lable and see it refers to 'explosive fresh lime, tropical fruits and floral notes'. Not my thing but not over-done so I'll happily finish this one.
Bought from M+S, Notting Hill Gate. £2.20/330ml bottle. BB: 06/09/2020

Bottle. Hazy pale urine colour. Light fluffy head.
Sweet hop aroma. A little lemon and lime. Some grass.
Lemon to the fore upon tasting. Rather earthy and stewed. Light bitter finish.
Moderate carbonation with a somewhat thin body.
Not unpleasant and probably better on a hotter day.

3.8/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2018. Purchased recently from Waitrose.

A: Poured into a tulip. Bottle conditioned. A hazy pale-gold hue with fine suspended sediment and moderate carbonation. Produces a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or so before collapsing and dissipating.

S: Aroma of intensely fruity hops with hints of clementine, citrus, peel, tropical fruit, white grape, mild stone fruit, grass, earthy yeast, subtle pale malt and a touch of stewed hops. Seriously hoppy - excellent.

T: Tastes of punchy fruit-laden hops with notes of citrus, peel, tropical fruit, white grape, grass/hay, earthy yeast, pale malt and stewed hops. Pretty dry, followed by a crisp hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and light body. Slightly astringent; hops oils stimulate the palate. Aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops, citrus, tropical fruit, bitterness, earthy yeast and pale malt.

O: Nice; a pale session-strength brew with an outsize hop character. Looks alright - shame about the head retention. The aroma and flavour are hoppy and fruity with subtle yeast and malt underpinnings. Body is OK; a tad thin but this isn't surprising given the strength. Very drinkable - goes down a treat. Worth sampling if you love hops.

From a 330ml bottle, sediment poured into glass.
L: Pale yellow. Slightly hazy with many streams of micro bubbles. Two finger foaming head that is very short-lived but leaves some spotty lacing.
S: Fresh, spicy, lightly yeasty, citrus. Very appealing.
T: Light, citrusy, clean flavour. Lots of grapefruit. Distinct lime aftertaste.
F: Tangy finish and moderate carbonation almost fends off a thin body.
O: A clean, light, refreshing APA. Not particularly unusual or memorable but, at a mere 3.7% ABV, this is a very decent thirst-quencher for a summer afternoon.

3.75/5  rDev +2.7%

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured a nice golden yellow colour. Light tan head poured quite loose and faded quickly to almost nothing... barely any carbonation and very little lacing...

Aroma - Grassy and piney hops, good caramel maltiness, faint nuttiness, some light buttery traces, ground pepper, floral honey notes, some herbal hints, some saltiness, grapefruit and citrus fruitiness, light rubberiness...

Taste - Quite malty first then the piney and grassy hops come to the fore... some sweet honey traces, grapefruit and orange fruitiness, toasted bread traces, quite floral, some saltiness, the faintest of metallic notes..

M&D - Quite crisp and dry... light / medium bodied... Very refreshing and drinkable and very sessionable...

Overall - A pretty decent APA - nothing groundbreaking just a good, clean well made APA... recommended...
