3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a slightly hazed dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a citrusy hops character and flavors of roast malt and caramel in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent IPA overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear golden-orange with an airy, bubbly white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with elements of fruit and citrus. Flavor is bitter at first, then sweet citrus/tangerine/grapefruit, leading back into a bitter finish. Thin and light-bodied, but very flavorful. Refreshing and quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Clear orange with a rich lasting head. Grapefruit dominates all the way through along with a bitterness that doesn’t linger. Very crisp, nice served on the cool side.

Cask at GBBF 2011. Copper orange color. Aromas and flavors of orange marmelade, mango and pineapple. Firm bitterness. The taste is dryer than aroma with nut maltiness in the background. Very drinkable and smooth IPA, nice.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. This beer has a great aroma and the Cascade is prevalent. Deep amber with some haze and a white, well carbonated head. A nice taste, but the hops are not there as much as hoped and the malt has a bit of a kick midway through the palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the GBBF 2011. Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of figs and other fruit, grass and biscuit. Sweet toffee and caramel flavour with grassy hops. Lots of bitterness but not the most exciting hop character

2nd August 2011
GBBF Cask. Light hazy amber beer, tidy off white suddy head. Mild citrus. Some semi raw tasting pale malt and caramel as well. Smooth semi dry finish. Bitterish aftertaste. It’s a slightly better beer than my downbeat description!
