4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An orangey, mango like colour that is very slightly cloudy and settles with a pinky sized head that has good retention & some lacing as well.
A fruity mango aroma with hint of pine although not as strong as that from the bottled version. A very nice and appealing smell, one of the best from a beer so far.
Again very simliar to the smell with a nice mango and blended fruit flavour that is quite sweet. There is a mildy bitter aftertaste that finishes the drink off nicely.
Medium bodied and very smooth, a little creamy too. A nice combination.
Has a lot less bitter, more sweet/fruity flavour than the bottle version with mango being the main taste & smell in this version.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Pours a hazy golden orange with 1.5 finger white head. Stellar retention with loads of lacing from top to bottom.
S - Floral, buttery biscuits, cheesy sulphur yeast, lemon zest. Cheese dominates as it warms.
T - Floral hops with a buttery pale malt. Lemon zest starts opening up with a spicy bitterness. The buttery cracker pale malt is a strange mix with the lemon rind hops. Crisp finish with some lemon and leafy hop bitterness lingering.
M - Moderate carbonation, full side of medium body.
Great looking beer! A cracker based pale malt with lots of leafy and lemon zest hops. The light buttery flavor didn’t help. It almost has a lager yeast character. Different but the perfume/lemon hops seems forced on top of the simple pale malt.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold, thin bubbly white head; lovely hoppy, tropical fruit aroma; hops dominate the flavour - some lemon, some grapefruit; dusty, dry finish; nice enough, but disappointing not to find the anticipated Jaipur-like amazingness from one of the seemingly touchstone beers of the British craft beer explosion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours amber with only a slight haze, moderate white head. Aroma is bready malt and pine and grapefruit hops. Taste is pretty much the same, maybe a little earthy in there too. Body was a little thinner than I was expecting, but not too light. Overall, this was pretty much text book IPA. Nothing especially unique, just hit all the right notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home 20/5 2013. Opaque orange, with a big white head. Hoppy aroma, with some grapefruit, citrus, grass and some sweetness. A clear hoppy taste, that lingers. At the price it is amazing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde dorée légèrement trouble, quasi-asence de pétillance, mousse presque inexistante. Bien houblonnée et épicée, caramélisée, arrière-goût fruité, un rien de douceur, petite sécheresse sur la fin. Première IPA pour moi, merci au boss du Malting Pot de me l’avoir fait découvir.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.6% 330ml bottle into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with light carbonation and a quickly dissipating head. Floral notes and citrus aroma after the pour with the suggestion of a hoppy punch forthcoming. Doesn’t deliver the kind of hoppiness I was anticipating; more light and crisp with a bit of a bitter back end. Quite pleasant!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange color with small and quickly dissappearing head. Powerful aroma of bunch of citrus: passionfruit, mango and grapefruit. Incredible! Taste is also citrus and completed by malty sweetness perfectly balanced strong bitterness. Finish is long and really bitter. Fantastic example of IPA.
