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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep golden colour, almost non existatn head that does not hold, not lace.
Smell of tropical fruits, with some caramel notes. Medium body, soft carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits, some caramel and spices, bitter finish. I’m not sure if conservation failed, but it’s too flat and simple.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice golden color with small white head. Aroma was not so great, full of esters, bananas and maybe a little notes from hops. Sweet taste without bitterness also full of bananas and esters.
Maybe all of that was caused by long sun exposure in shop or something else.

Tap@Charlies Bar, Copenhagen. Pours orange with medium white head. Malty caramel, medium undertones of citrus in there but, a little bit messy, on the palate for me. Ok overall.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly cloudy, golden pour, not much head, minimal lacing. 6,7% ABV gives an unpleasant hint of alcohol to the aroma along with the hops and malt notes that’s in there. Don’t like the aroma. Well carbonated and bitter flavour, again that unpleasant taste of alcohol, along with a hint of dark fruits in the aftertaste. Huge fan of Adnams I am, but this is not their best.... Sorry....

Bottle at Victoria & Albert Museum, visiting Alexander McQueen exhibition. Moderately malty, hoppy, bitter for sure. Could do with more citrus, I reckon. A bit lacking in depth. Okay IPA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden - almost amber - colour. No head whatsoever. Seems filtered. Nutty, hoppy aroma. Slightly bready. Only lightly carbonated. Very little bitterness for an IPA. A little on the boozy side. Overall pleasant and drinkable, but I expect more from an IPA at 6.7% ABV.
