Had lots of fun trying all the beers last night, hangover shifted and will get all the feedback out later. Making a start now. I haven't dropped marks for clarity because I wasn't sure with all of them whether they were supposed to be clear or not...also I have a feeling that some didn't travel well as will be revealed in the feedback.

ok so feedback for @dave_77

Aroma; High hop aroma, piles of lemon, bit of pine and bubblegum, could smell it before I poured, delicious 9/12

Appearance;
Pale, Hazy, thin head which quickly disipates, looks fresh and refreshing (if such a thing is possible). 2/3

Flavour
; Tastes much like it smells, bitter but not overly so. Bitterness and hop flavour well balance with some maltiness there too, hints of orange flavours. Thirst quenching. 16/20

Mouthfeel;
Light bodied, quite dry, a little bit of astringency which works well. Perfectly Carbed. 4/10

Overall Impression
; Despite winning this split the judges a little bit with one of us thinking it was slightly too bitter for a pale. Despite this we all thought it was a lovely well made beer, well balanced. The aroma really was the icing on the cake. A lovely beer. 8/10
