3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Clear almost fluorescent orange color, huge rough white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, grains, malt bitter. Taste malts, malt bitter, some bitter hop, slightly a hint of butter. Full of malt and malt bitterness, less focus on the hops and no fruityness. Appears to be an English style IPA. Ok beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber. Citric hoppy nose. Overly hopped and bitter taste, this beer needs more malts as a balance.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 On draft at the brewpub (Riverside Point) and then from a 33cl bottle brought home to sample. The first was ’tired’and deeply unimpressive - too sweet, cloying on the palate, hoppy enough (just) but with an unsophisticated choice of hop. The second better but still struggled. The grain base had been fermented through to the edge of aldehydes and the hop recipe was giving way. Reviews from earlier incarnations suggests that a new injection of authenticity is required.

330ml bottle: BBD 15th Aug 15. Brought to the January 15 Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange Group meeting by Mat and shared between five of us. Cheers Mat, an unexpected surprise. Misty old gold pour with a white topping of bubbles. Fairly sweet malty molasses nose with a fruity hop taste which leads to a dry hop bitter finish. Very pleasant.
