Can, Slim’s Pork Chop Express, Liverpool. Clear golden pour crowned with a reasonable white head. Pale malts, citrus and fragrant hop in the nose. Tidy hoppage in the flavour alongside grapefruit , malts and straw. Bitterness on point. Light, easy drinking and very refreshing. A quality session IPA that scores highly on drinkability. Nice to see this becoming more widely available.

Pretty disgusting name... :-) Fresh hops, light and appealing. Super summery ! Light bitter yet crisp and still not boring. It’s hard to describe because that sounds boring yet is super tasty. Really full flavoured and fresh. The can is a superb packaging for a beer like this. Yes, very successful brew. (Can from Refactoring Northern Monk brewpub)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home. Has a hazy, dull, dark yellow color with a big, creamy, white head. Fruity aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, pine and grass. The flavor has more grass, dry hay, grains and some lemon juice. Has a slick and light mouth feel, and light bitterness. An easy drinking, hoppy ale without much bitterness. Well-balanced.
