3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange Juice Colour.
Aroma. smells of sweet fruits
Taste. Quite unique, unlike anything else iíve tasted, very piney with not much else going on. as a previous commenter mentioned not viable as a single hop ipa, but would be something else if used in conjuction with other hop varieties.
Overall, this beer is quite piney and bitter, but with no other flavours to back it up it sadly falls short of being a great beer, none the less i would still recommend it.

In the glass, a good head, very pine aroma, tastes alot of pine and a few fruits with it. A pilsner like after taste. not much to say with it. but it for sure is not a bad beer

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Second beer in the Bridge Road IPA four-pack. Peachy gold, appearance let down by a weak head. Much bigger news than the first beer (Summer hop): strong pink grapefruit, canned peach, and some eucalyptus resin. Thicker mouthfeel - ooh, this is nice. Not sure why the body should feel so much fuller when the malt profile is the same, but there it is. On the tongue, mango, grapefruit, pine cone. Higher bitterness - towards the upper end of the session scale. Packs a lot of punch for its weight - in a blind tasting I would have thought this was 5.8 - 6% abv, rather than the actual and very modest 4.8%. Pretty impressive.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of sweet citrus, melon, and stone fruit, wow, thatís nice. Taste follows, less than the nose, malty back end, sensing a theme with these beers. Love the nose on this one, mild bitterness, good stuff.

330ml bottle. Itís got a big resinous pine oil aroma with a touch of stone fruit on top of the subdued caramel malt bill. It tastes similar with a moderate resinous hop bitterness that lingers. Pours amber with a decent white head. Probably my favourite of the single hop series.

330ml bottle from Craft Wine Store. Reasonably good hop aroma that carries over into the flavour. Looks good when poured into a glass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle cheers Boobies at GABS. Pours dirty lemon with a thick and fluffy white head. Nose is full of spice and tropical fruits - kind of comes across as a rye a little bit. Taste is plenty pine driven with tropical fruits, zest and more spice again. The spice adds a nice element. Enjoyable

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a white head. Aroma of pine, honeydew melon, kumquats, lychees, light caramel. Bracingly dry and quite bitter with resinous pine largely obscuring the tropical fruit.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Woot. That is some dry hops. Itís like a desert in my mouth even though itís full of liquid. The taste is overwhelmingly grapefruit and sawdust. Not a fan of this, but I love the single hop series - it gives you a great chance to really understand the hop flavours. I can see this giving an IPA a really nice kick but itís a bit like grenache - better with Shiraz and Mourvedre. Some Galaxy hops ploise!
