4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Cotteridge WInes, Birmingham. Smells unbelievable: redolent with tropical hops. Taste (i.e. flavour) is soooo good. The hops are thick, super tropical fruit, with passionfruit, guava and a bit of milk. Dry finish, but by and large a juicy, squelching fruit festival. Sensational hops.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Why Hoxton when itís brewed in Leyton? Smells of a desperate bid for hipsterdom to me! Geographic pedantry aside, this was ace - from bottle, pale gold, lovely aroma of hops, peaches and pineapple; tastes of lots of piney hops and tropical fuit; bitter, dry finish; I could still taste it the following day and it reminded me of the pineapple melba my mother used to make (a good thing, in case youíve never tasted it); excellent.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the London Brewers Showcase 2011. Pours hazy, golden-brown with a medium, thick white head. Lots of meaty hops in the nose, with a bit of resinous pine. Medium sweet flavor, toast, light caramel, heavy pine. Lots of meat, dude. Maybe some ham. Toast. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Has a fairly sticky finish, some orange and other ripe citrus, grapefruit, pine, toast, cakey bread. Really solid beer overall. One of the best Brodies beers Iíve ever had.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a rough white head. Sweet fruity nose, lots of tropical peachy accents. Medium body, lightly sweet fruit and then a wonderful melange of tropical fruit - any Sorachi Ace in there? Dry and bitter but perfectly balanced by the sweetness. My kinda IPA. 030812
