3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body, with an average white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a good lace. Very nice tropical aroma, along with a medium to heavy bitter taste. Light to almost no bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy carbonation level, a bit excessive I’d say, oily texture, medium body. A very nice, honest, straightfoward IPA.

Bottle, at The Local Pub, in Athens. Floral notes, some grapefruit and loads of hoppiness. Astringent, bitter aftertaste. A very drinkable tribute to American IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 27/11/13 - Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of stingy hops, hints of floral notes, fruits, grass and pine. Taste is grassy and hoppy with notes of gooseberries, citrus, fruits and floral notes. Finish is dry and bitter with lots of gooseberries and grassy hops. Quite hoppy and grassy, but feels like its already past its prime and not very fresh.

50 cl bottle. BBE 27.11.2013.
Pours hazy dark amber color with a large white head. Aroma of pine needles, nice floral hop profile, some mandarin and lemon with some refreshing grassy notes. Flavor is also quite refreshing with citrus fruits, subtle caramel malts and goose berries. Crisp bitter palate with a fruity finish. Good stuff.

The white wine cask aged version of this is great. The original is good but the wine cask does it for me.

500 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy orange amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma is very, very exciting; strong orange, floral hops and passion fruit. Flavour of strong floral hops, grapefruit, exotic fruits, biscuity malts and some mild sweetness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a very bitter, floral and fruity finish. Excellent stuff.

One of the tastiest IPA’s I’ve tasted in years, and brewed in my favorite city, Bristol, UK - not sure why it’s said to be brewed by American craft brewers?
