3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly redish/brown, not golden, small head quickly diminishes, a very unique hoppy smell, citrus with some sweet undertone. Taste is full and very mild. It doesn’t deliver the bitternes you thought it had. It is quite sweet for an ipa beer. But it is wonderfully balanced. A great beer!

Taste is grapefruit, resinous grass notes, faint cardboard notes, band-aids, soap, caramel and hints of red berries and pineapple. Light to medium body, soft carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2014 Bottle from Marks and Spencer Team Valley. A curious one - the fruit and floral flavours are summery but there's a warming strength to it. Very nice indeed. (Branded as M and S Winter IPA)
