Appearance: opaque deep gold with one fat finger of fine pale ivory head, good retention and moderate stringy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy stone and tropical fruit, citrus, pale malt, vanilla, hints of pine & grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, medium duration mild bitter slightly tart finish. (4/5)

Big fruity aroma and flavour dominated by fuzzy peach candy, but with a little juicy citrus and vanilla backing, and the merest hints of some greener notes of pine and grass. Big creamsicle flavour for an APA, and lovely to sip on while BBQing some sausages! (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
