2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
dark amber and slightly hazy.
smells mainly of sweet malt, hints of raisin and less so hints of hops
tastes like hop stems, w/ a kind of astringent bitterness
has huge hop finish. by the end i was picking up oak in the flavour and finish. this is a pretty good beer. not amazing but lots better than many. i certainly don’t think it’s worth £9 a bottle!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Last of my 3 bottles. This one has been in my possession over a year. ($25 per bottle). Pours a nice dark tan color with a thick head. Smells floral and citrusy with notes of cereal and toast. Taste is not overly hoppy, but you get that in the aftertase. This beer is not that extreme of an IPA as the story made it out to be, but it’s quite good nonetheless. Don’t think I’d spend this much again for the novelty.

12 once bottle, shared with Josh, Ryan, and the newly-turned-21 club at Paradiso Georgetown. Cloudy golden color, edge head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, rhum. Taste is very malty, with smooth brandy and pine, slight edge of lime. Interesting and delicious.

Light hazed muddy brown a little green when he’d to the light. The sweetest, saltiest, maltiest and balmiest mild ale flavour with amazing toffee aftertaste deep and powdery. Fun. That is good

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. Chocolate, toffee, a whiff of peat and some piney, resiny hops on the nose. Definitely not your everyday IPA aroma. The flavor is sweet and toffeeish, some hints of vanilla blending in, and it lacks on both bitterness and hop flavor. Smooth, medium body and a rather roasted finish. Interesting and nice, but not my kind of IPA. 100611
