4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted from 650ml bottle. Tending towards the tropical fruit end of the spectrum. Nothing immediately jumps out because this beer is incredibly balanced. Great length on the palate, This beer is really hard to pick individual flavours because it is so intertwined. The sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty darn good. Very earthy dank and bitter. Good amount of pine. Not really citrus tasting. So darn fresh and tasty. Big down side, too darn expensive. The price is reflected in the Overall category. I usually wouldn’t let something like that reflect my rating, but $16 a six pack is too much money. Easily could be a 4.5 out of 5 if the price were closed to $10 a six pack.

Bottle 12 oz...one of my top three...greatest hop aroma of mango grapefruit and pine. Favor is as crisp and clean as you can with fantastic hop flavor and dry clean crystal clear greatness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draught at a bar in Las Vegas. Light orange/yellow colour with a white head. Aromas of fruit, and a flavour of apricots, oranges and lemons. There is also a very dry, almost astringent taste of grapefruity hops. A nicely bitter, well-made IPA in the American style.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Now THAT IS a good IPA! Beer in the glass is magnificent: orange/golden colour, lot of carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass, nice thick white head on the top of the beer. Head disappeared quite rapidly though. Aromas of pine, citrus and mango. The mouthfeel is warm, and the mouth gets filled with this incredible hoppy flavour as the beer gets down the throat. The after taste lasts for hours and is really evolutive. Splendid!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
From a 650ml bottle on 27/1/2015. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a big fine white head. Have been waiting to try this for ages, as their Big Eye IPA is both a regular and a big fave of mine. The aroma is exquisite, with lots of caramel malt and fruity, piney hops. In the mouth, there’s a big caramel malt backbone with some toffee, masses of tropical, stone fruit and citrus fruit (mango, peach, apricot, mandarin, grapefruit), marmalade, and big dry resiny hops. The palate is a little syrupy with average carbonation. This is a truly wonderful IPA which is difficult to fault. To me, it’s only subtly different to Big Eye - a little sweeter, smoother and ever so slightly less aggressive. Perhaps a touch more enjoyable, but only just.
