4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - This beer has a very floral, almost flowery aroma, with hints of citrus and tropical fruit, as well as some honey and caramel.
Appearance - Pours a clear golden, orangish body, with a frothy beige head. Some lacing and decent head retention. The beer does look like an American IPA, but the appearance is not super impressive.
Taste - Starts out with a pretty solid hop bite, with a little spiciness to it. Fairly sweet, with hints of honey and toffee. I was getting loads of fruit notes (pineapple, apples, mangoes, some citrus). The after-taste has some moderate bitterness and a biscuity undertone to it. Not very bready.
Palate - The mouthfeel is very smooth. Medium-bodied, low in carbonation, and very soft on the palate, with just a little bit of a pepper-like spiciness (which only complements the general feel of it all).
Drinks well, but I wouldn’t call this beer sessionable nor quaffable. At a fairly high ABV, it goes down very easily, but you will start to feel it in your body, nevertheless.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dal colore dorato brillante con schiuma bianca fine non abbondante e nemmeno persistente. Al naso le prime note sono di frutta matura (pesca) e polpa d’arancia, poi note di cereale e carruba. Al palato ha un buon corpo, dolce, leggermente carbonato. Al gusto di nuovo note di frutta matura e di carruba. Sorso tondo e per nulla secco, con leggero amaro e lievissime note erbaceo-resinose.
