3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Brooklyn Brewery and in bottles from the supermarket. Nice job on the aroma. Smells alcoholy but with a fruity floral scent as well, not too strong. I actually really like this beer. The bitterness lingers at the back of the mouth quite nicely. Easier to drink and less dry than many IPAs.

Orange on the nose, and burnt rubber?
Orange initial flavour then metallic and a bit of fizz. Not great.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light amber/orange body. Medium head. Aroma is quite stale with hay and some dried tangerine peel. Light but sticky mouthfeel. Taste has old orange juice and some flat and dry bitterness without the fresh and vibrant zestiness that is found in good IPAs. Soapy finish. Not very good.

Clear amber colour, white foamy head. Pine and grapefruit hoppy aroma, crisp and dry bitter hoppy taste with a firm caramel malty backbone. English style IPA, not as floral and fruity as its American counterpart. Medium body, medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel.

More malty than many IPAs, but this is an Anglophile beer.
I like the citrus nose, clear appearance with light lacing.
But the taste has become less palatable with time. The person who said bubblegum was on the right track.
It’s worth a try, but it’s not your new best friend.
