3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask (gravity dispense) at the Rake on 13 April 2011. Rather hazy amber appearance. Good flowery, nettley, citric aroma. More citrus (grapefruit) in the flavour, topped up with touches of tropical fruit. Didnít really get much caramel malt presence. Firm enough mouthfeel although a little flat and lifeless. Plenty tasty but condition didnít seem perfect. Still enjoyable though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half, from cask@Brew Wharf. A finger of coarse, big-bubbled near-white foam, over a brownish amber body with good clarity. Modest aroma of light caramelly malts and peachy hops. Sour-accented, fairly dry malt flavor. Nice taste of caramel. Ok bitterness. Earthy, and maybe woody and spiced flavoring hops. Very light for a 6.5 percenter. Feels kind of watered down in the mouth. Souris-malty endnotes. Not my kind of IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned handpump Brew Wharf London. An amber coloured beer with a white head. A good full bodied hoppy beer with nice citricity in the nose and no off-putting sweetness. Quite chewy in the mouth. A good melange of hops with an interesting medicinal note. I suppose I should look up what melanoidin is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brew Wharf. It pours clear amber, with a foamy white head and soft carbonation. The nose is mozzarella, wood, orange, roasted malt and yeast. The taste is chewy, resin, orange, mango, grapefruit, lychee, caramel, brown bread, toast and some soap, with a long bitter-woody finish. Itís smooth and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gravity at the Rake. Pours a murky dark amber with a fine off-white head. Green and peppery hops on nose plus a hint of grapefruit and mango. Palate is dry-bitter with hints of banana and treacle, then a very dry-bitter finish, still with a burnt note. Good but not quite right.
