3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2014 330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Cloudyish orange, tight white head ends up as mouldy splats on the surface. Really fresh hop aroma, like having sticky fresh EKG buds to rub between your fingertips. Sweeter malts in the mouth. A little bit zesty. Bitter palate, a little sticky as it warms. Slightly hop-heavy, but not aggressively so. I prefered the 4.1% earlier, this just seems a bit overweight and clumsy in comparison.
Rerate: Tap (Toits, Tallinn) (6:4-:6+:4-:13=3.3-)
Fuck keg. Taken all the interest out of a good beer. Just say no to keg.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Beer Central Sheffield - An excellent looking amber beer, with a pillowy lacing white head. Nose is a big punch of fresh citrus, grapefruit and oranges and everything in between. Taste is also fresh citrus, a nice oily mouthfeel too, with a long finish of bitterness that just rounds things up perfectly. A great beer. Superb.

Bottle from Cornelius. Pours medium orange with small white head. Slight haze. Big big resinous hoppy nose. Orange and grapefruit on the nose. Good carbonation. Bitter initial taste with sweeter finish. Medium body, a little oily. Hides alcohol well. This is a great IPA. Just remember, this is NOT. Session ale!!
