3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A big malty IPA with caramel and even a little chocolate combining with pine needles and grapefruit to produce a really smooth beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Surely a bit NQR? Miles off the commercial description. Old style with minerals and rust but not much by way of fresh hops and resin. Seems unduly restrained.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a red amber with a foamy off white head that doesn’t hold. Very low carbonation, even for an ipa. Almost flat. Strong citrus and piney aroma, with a big malt sweetness to follow. Taste is a well balanced caramel with citrus and stonefruit. Resinous bitterness to match the oily texture. A nice drop, but was very undercarbed

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy copper with a large lasting head.
Nose shows pine, resinous and earthy hops, sweet bready malt and alittle faint fruit.
Similar hops as flavours, quite earthy, piny and spicy. Nice bready malt in the background and some peach too.
Carbonation seems a little excessive.
A pretty decent English IPA.
