3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. A cloudy amber coloured ale with practically no head. Full of hops and a slightly stewed tropical fruitiness, it’s a very tasty IPA that does not taste its strength.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary and some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is similar, but also has a bunch of grassy and earthy notes to balance the sweetness up. Actually a pleasantly balanced brew. In a way rather English IPA to the style.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer might be a bit old, but there is little fresh hoppy bitterness. Instead a diffuse body taste dominates the beer. Not bad, but not what I expected from an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (660ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a murky orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruit, light candi sugar, biscuity malt, piney hops and...not sure. Flavour of biscuity malt, piney hops, fruit and a long bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Something a bit odd about this one that I can’t place but either way, it’s good.
