3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is soft and sweet. Tropical fruits, straw and other summer tones. Taste is nowhere near those 8.5% and I wonder where they hid the alcohol? Sweet apricots, peaches, melon and a little spicey in the end. A little watery even. Hmmm. A decent imperial IPA but I wouldn’t get up and moonwalk after having this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can split at Bespin, from Kihoskh CPH, 03/09/15.
Hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering.
Nose is melon, orange pith, straw, mellow tropicana, a little washed out.
Taste comprises straw, melon, light tropical shreds, orange squash, all a touch insipid.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness.
A wet weekend in a can, doesn’t show the ABV at all, doesn’t show much tbh - drinkable but a poor showing for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20

Taste is floral, biscuity, lemon, dry finish. Booze isn’t showing up that much. Very basic for the style, but fine.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Hazy/unclear yellow/orange with a large off white good lacing head. Lots of citrus in the nose, flowers, spicy. Smells nice and not too heavy. Unfortunately the flavour is the exact opposite; heavy and dull. Grain, dust, light green plants, alcohol, hay. Medium body, fine soft carbonation, some sweetness, balanced bitterness. Not harsh and feels ok in the mouth, just not interesting at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Can shared in London - many thanks to Colin. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Fairly bland on the nose, vague citrus, pale bread. Light sweet flavor, still bland, some grain, citrus rind, hay. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Very little to compel in the finish, the hops really, just some grainy pale malts. Not good.
