3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky dark orange haze with a foamy white head. Bright and clean pink grapefruit zest to the nose. Dusty, marshmallow sweetness throughout. Lacking in any decisive bitter but very pleasant mouth-feel evens things out. Very assured delivery of the ABV with a sweetness on the finish giving a firm, dry caramel linger.
Fairly decent gritty IPA, comfortingly under-hopped. Would be happy to sit with a few of these or a dive in the deep end to wake up the palate it masks the ABV so softly.

Cloudy amber color with small sized creamy and persistent head. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity at first (plums) and then pungent and sweaty; everlasting. Smooth mouthfeel, good toffee flavor, powerful hopping, with dry resins and some sweet oranges; long final, drier. The elements are balanced altogether.
Excellent IPA monster.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg in the Old Coffee Shop. Colour is clear chestnut brown, medium white head. Nose is syrupy fruit, peach, grapefruit, tangerine and lemon citrous, quite a bit of sweet floral. Taste is bite of bitter hoppy. There’s a bit of a bitter tang which I’m not hugely keen on which is green hop and charcoal.
