3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like the idea behind this beer. An English style, reimagined in America reimagined again in England. Looks good too, very stable head. But the aroma misses much panache. Not very hoppy nor very malty or delicate. Taste is much better, nice juicy bitterness, lasting. Very quaffable. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ocado. Pours medium amber with shallow white head. Aroma of raisins and sweet mandarin. Taste comes across strongly of port, with string alcoholic flavours and a long bitter finish. Quite original for something trying to be American IPA, but not to my tastes.

Not very bitter at all for a beer that claims to be an American-style IPA. Very subtle hop taste.
