3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml brown bottle. Gold in colour, just a bit of haze. White head, good creaminess and great lacing.Nose has a light fruitiness and mild grapefruit notes. Taste has wheaty malts, trace caramel, big orangey hops with a very light spiciness. Finishes with a bit of grapefruity hops, later notes of orange peel. Bitterness plays a balancing role, not terribly agressive on the hop front, still the hop choices and wheat malt do make for a pretty tasty lighter IPA, it drinks lighter than its 6.7% abv would suggest.

Bernsteinfarbenes klares IPA. Es wurden folgende Hopfen verwendet: Boadicea, Columbus und Styrian Golding. Sehr fruchtig, Grapefruit, Pinie, leicht bitterer Abgang, leider für mich aber auch fast etwas zu süß.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from M&S as Southwold Winter IPA. Pours golden with a good off-white head. The aroma is promisingly grapefruit. The taste is light spice with herbal notes, a touch of pear drop and some bitter pine in the finish. Has the feel of a traditional english IPA despite the US hops. Decent but not great.
