3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330ml. Pours a clear golden with a fairly dense offwhite head, leavng a little lacing. Aroma is mostly resin, notes of pear, bit of citrus but not much. Taste is light sweet, medium to heavy bitter, lasting strong bitterness. Light to medium body, thin texture, soft to average carbonation. Decent stuff this, well balanced, nice bitterness that lingers for quite a while on the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330ml, big thanks to @igniztion
Pours amber with a hint of golden on an offwhite head. Aroma of hops (duhh..), wonderfully hopped. Love single hops, for a newbie it´s good to taste and smell on only one hop. Even though it only got one hop it feels like it is balanced. Mild, just enough bitter to make you wanting more of this great beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. First things first: this is a deliciously hopped beer. Now to try and say something sensible about it. Hops are fresh resin to start (like any IPA worth its salt), then it flattens out a little, to leave a final third of dry/sweet notes like Babycham perhaps, or white dessert wine. I can see leaf. I can see blackberry crumble. Very nice and light in texture.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 08-02-12, at Kitty’s, Helsinki) The beer poured amber and almost clear. Its head was quite large, white and it lasted long. Aroma had hops, nettles, exotic fruits and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, hops, fruitiness, exotic fruits, sweetness, straw and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and mildly sweet. An ok beer but I would have like the body to be fuller. This hop variety was a new to me.
