Pours golden amber with a weak head. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with a spicy, peppery almost herbal edge. Flavour doesn’t quite live up to the aroma with a slightly vegetal bitterness dominating, still pleasant though

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Hazy gold with slight head. Certainly not the impact I was expecting, there is a flowery hop note on a thin body also a touch of pear drops and alcohol, but it didn’t seem particularly balanced or full. It’s ok but nothing spectacular.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Fest. It pours hazy amber with small white head. The nose is dough, farmyard, light spice, freshly baked farmhouse bread and some tropical fruit. The taste is dough, spice, light sweetness, bread, lemon, grapefruit and pear with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. I wasn’t blown away by it, but it’s a solid beer nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the 13th Egham Beer Festival. Straw coloured with a loose white head; aroma od pineapple and other tropical fruit; the tropical fruit flavours continue in the mouth, followed by a sweet grapefruit bitterness; then a dry and sustained bitter fruitiness. Not as explosive as I anticipated, but an solid IPA nevertheless.
