Similar smell to the Fourpure Session IPA, with sweeter orange tangerine aromas among the citrus hops and caramel malt. Some creaminess and sweetness in the background. Much more malty and fuller bodied taste with some of the fruitiness of the nose. Moderate carbonation, which is to my taste.

Golden orange, not too much foam, white, quite creamy.
At the nose, fresh hop, lightly citric, and piney. Freshness.
In the taste again the piney, the freshness, with a light citrus note. Easily drinkable.
Quite pungent aftertaste, again piney.
Light body.
Good beer.

A 330ml can with a BB of Nov 2014. Picked up a while back from Trembling Madness in York. The label mentions that this pale ale is inspired by California (not sure if that's a reference to SNPA or something else).

A: Poured into a tulip. Can-conditioned. A deep, hazy amber hue with plenty of floating sediment and very low carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity hops with hints of lime, citrus, vague white fruit, caramel malt, earthy yeast and faint stewed hops.

T: Tastes of fruity aromatic hops with a sharp, bitter finish. Notes of lime, mild grapefruit, citrus, white fruits, grass/hay, earthy yeast, caramel malt and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a crisp, hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly tingly, with ultra-soft carbonation and decent body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of fruity aromatic hops, tart bitterness and earthy yeast.

O: A tasty little APA, despite the lack of carbonation. Looks OKish - if a little flat. The aroma and flavour are lovely, stuffed with fruity hop notes balanced by subdued malt. Body is alright (though also a bit flat). Could be enhanced by improved carbonation; the additional texture would be nice. Goes down a treat. Worth sampling if you come across it.
