3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from cotteridge wines. was looking forward to this but was ultimately dissapointed. initial aroma wasnt bad, typical pine and fruity stuff with hint of caramel coming through. dark amber with small head. i just thought there was far to much going on in the taste department. your usual suspects, toffee malts and juicy fruits were there but then this strange almost vegetable flavour came through and sort of ruined it for me. there was a good amount of bitterness going down as you would expect from a DIPA. overall it wasnt bad, i’ve tasted much worse, but just wassnt at all as good as i had expected.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orange, with a thick white foam head. Really intense hops and pine aroma, from this super fresh bottle, delivered straight from the brewery . Beautifully balanced hop and malt flavour, with a drying bitter hop finish. Better than most DIPA from the U.S.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Pierre T. Bottle 16/09/2015.
Léger orangé, col fin blanc.
Arôme offre un bouquet renforcé au niveau de la puissance du houblon; ici une impression de sac frais de houblon, pas mal de résineux mais aussi un léger côté levure qui est moins plaisant.
Palais met un accent certain sur le pin-résineux, sec en fin de bouche avec un accompagnement léger d’agrumes, petite rondeur au niveau grains, avoine? le tout ponctué par un malt caramel léger.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange marmalade, pine, slight lemon, some caramel and grassy hops. Taste is similar of orange marmalade, slight grapefruit, resin, caramel, maybe slight toffee and subtle grassy hops. Medium bodied but a slightly syrupy texture. A dry, marmalade bitterness in the finish. A hard hitting, orange marmalade IPA. Nicely balanced with the sweet caramel but maybe a little viscous, nice though.
