3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A finger of head with low retention on a dirty, dark straw colored body.
The aroma has a malty richness to it; lemon, caramel and anise. Interesting.
Whoa, the taste is unlike any IPA I’ve ever had. Big and bold malt sweetness at the beginning with a lemon bitterness coming in the middle. There’s a barnyard funk throughout it all.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
This is tough to like... but it is a different take on IPA compared to most American IPAs.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
20.2.2014. Aroma of caramel malts, hops, not intense from tap. Strong fruity taste, also herbs and sweetness, dry and woody bitter finish. Also plenty of malts. A bit different from Brewdogs pine-grapefruit-bombs.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[6828-20140926] 660mL bottle. Funky fruity old apples and mango hints and a lightly mouldy earth aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter grainy malt and resinous hops flavour has a mild tropical fruit base. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

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.
