3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer in the glass is dark yellow with a little foam. Hoppy aroma with light citrus and grassy notes and a lot of herbs in the background. Starts very herbal, slightly medicinal, herbaceous-hoppy, subtle citrus notes in the background. The middle part is also very herbal-hoppy, subtly bitter, with a slight herbal note. Goes into a hoppy-dry finish with plenty of herbs (especially sage)!

(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with caramel, treacle, toffee, honey, orange peel, black-currant and hints of resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, orange peel, marmalade, caramel, treacle toffee, resin, black-currant, a touch of ginger in the background and a generous citric, spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Pretty clear, golden body with a nice, dense off-white head. Fruity aroma, citric, blackcurrant, wine gum and slightly soapy. Flavor is sweet and fruity, balanced bitterness, fine malt base with some caramel. A bit unusually in aroma and flavor but pleasant. Medium body and bitter aftertaste.

19th February 2011
Clear amber beer, little white head. Light and semi soft palate, a little dry. Rich earthy and spicy hops. A trace of orange marmalade underneath. Some creamy malt forms a base. Finishes with more earthy spicy hops. A bit different this IPA and a great showcase for Brambling Cross.

Nice example of a single hop. Fruity, with a little spice and zest. Nice mouthfeel. Would like to see more beers using this hops to full effect.
