3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampler and pint at the brewpub, 28/10/13. Excellent spiky black tea, curry leaf and grapefruit hop over biscuit sweetness Floral, ganja, sweat and blackcurrant aroma. Clear pale gold capped with white. The kind of lean, stewed, hop-centric IPA I like. Got a clear glass growler to go.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a thin whitish head. Hoppy, but with a bit of earthy grass taste and a bit of skunkiness. Refreshing, fairly bold and strong, not bad, but not a super standout IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught a few times. Cloudy yellow/orange with a smallish white head. Flavor and aroma are both a nice mixture of pine hops, some light fruits, and quite a bit of malt. Bit of a thick, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty malty for an IPA thatís verging on DIPA by strength, which I like.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the Surfrider Cafe. Hazy orange with a small white head. really hazy. Pungent, sticky aroma with a piney, almost pineapple touch. The flavor is a little heavy on the malt, but stops short of caramel, gust rocking the cake sweetness. Solid bitterness and piney hop flavors with some tropical fruit as well. A little heavy on the body. Good hop character, but the body and malt need to be lightened a touch and cleaned up.
