500ml bottle. Aroma is grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit and maybe a bit of caramel malt. Overall: overpowering taste from the hops. A good beer for those seeking strong flavour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A hazy amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, strawberry, some orange, grapefruit, slight pine and subtle pineapple. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some pine, a hint of passion fruit, pineapple, slight toasted malts, burnt caramel and subtle red berries. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dryish, piney and citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A very good take on an American IPA. A good amount of citrus and pine hop bitterness and sweet, caramel and toasted malts.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Butchers Hook, Southampton. The sweet malt body here does support the juicy citric hops so this feels quite balanced and drinkable. I hadn’t realised at the time that the abv was as high as 6.5% as it doesn’t feel that strong. For me the malt is not doing much more than balancing and supporting the hops. The malt is too pale, too biscuit like, and too bland, for my taste. The focus here is on the juicy hops, which thankfully held off, just, from burning my lips. I was OK with this, but it’s not really my thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold, thin but sustained white head and good condition. Big hoppy nose with hints of grass, grapefruit, raspberry jam and distant toffee. Full bodied and fruity in the mouth, with raspberry and sweet grain fighting a solid citrusy hop bitterness for balance but in the finish the bitterness becomes dominant without becoming dominating.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sunday 3rd July 2016. 500ml bottle conditioned, into a UK pint sleeve at home. Sediment left the bottle, so the dull amber body had a slight haze: on top a wispy white covering and collar. Tropical fruits rule both the nose and taste with a definite grapefruit lead. Liked it.

Bottle from Waitrose. (£2.50) Shortly after drinking a truly awful Sharps Doom Bar in a pub, I had this at home and the difference is night and day. Soft and subtle, lots of taste - just very good. Thumbs up.
