3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 Sampled on tap at the famous 100 Club in Oxford Street, London. A pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma of fresh bread and grapefruit. The taste has plenty of full-bodied malts, but with an astringent taste of grapefruit skin, along with other lemon, lime and lychee flavours. A good balance is achieved between the malts and the powerfully citrusy hops. A refreshing and flavoursome pint with a good bitter aftertaste.

330ml bottle: BBD 1 Apr 15, drank outside looking at Borough Market on 11 Sep 14.
Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy with plenty of bitterness. Taste follows along very samey. Nicely carbonated, alcohol well hidden, not bad at all.

The fresh citrus & piney hops fizzle off the tongue. However, the depth leads a little to be desired with an abrupt finish. A great session ale but not a connoisseur's drink.

330ml bottle from Waitrose (I assume the bottle version of this goes in here under "keg" as usual). Clear amber pour with a huge fluffy lasting off-white head. Aroma is grassy bitterness and light grapefruit zest - no alcohol, very light grain body on the nose. Taste follow, a bit metallic - still not much alcohol. Average body, stinging carbonation, fairly quick, slighly acidic/dry finish. Pleasant enough.

Tap @ the Blues House near Camden, large sample, served in a big shaker. Almost clear yellow to golden color, short head. Aroma of citrussy hop, slight lychee, grapefruit, slight cookie and biscuity malt. Medium bitter in taste. I would consider this a session IPA, and a great one for it. Watched the sunday jam sessions at the Blues House, with a crazy Jimi Hendrix impersonator. Photobombed some Spanish tourists. Great laughs with a great beer :-)
