3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pros: Excellent look, the beer is clearly a natural ale. Large frothy foam that lasts well. Light golden color. Nose has some potent hop elements. Flavor has lots of taste, is well balanced.
It’s hard not to like a natural, well made IPA like this. I’m not blown away, but this beer is of the highest quality, no doubt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
335ml bottle: BBD 20 Apr 16. Drank on 1 Oct 15 in The Crown Inn, Oakengates Shropshire. Surprised to see it on offer, so had to try it. Old gold body with a slight haze, might have been over chilled and shuck before getting into my hands, the head was white and it tried to last a while. Hops all the way here, bitter and dry aftertaste with very little malt action to be found. I liked it, a bit too highly carbonated for my palate but otherwise a pleasant beer from a brewery new to me.

Bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow colour with a medium sized white head. Smells hops, citrus, fruity, fresh, sweetish, slightly tropical fruits, nice. Tastes bitter, malts, slightly watery. Lacking fruityness, could use more body. Still not bad though. Soft to medium carbo.
