3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BD Online shop.Pours clear gold orange, head disappears to patches. Nose of orange, pineapple, sweet tropical, plus some caramel. Tastes medium sweet caramel malt, medium bitter, loads of juicy fruit aromatics, bittersweet orange, pineapple, guava, lychee. Body is medium, texture is oily/creamy, carbonation is softish. This isn’t the most complex IPA, nor the most bitter, but it’s juicy as hell and well put-together.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 3/12/2014. Pours a clear deep golden with a tiny head. The nose is rather pleasant with lots of tropical and stone fruit. The flavour starts out with some sweet bready malt, followed by peach, pear and apricot, and finishes with moderate to strong, lingering, sticky hops. Has a fullish body and medium carbonation. A very well made IPA, if not particularly noteworthy.
