3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Mum and Dads, from Tesco Dundalk, 30/08/14.
Clear golden amber with a well appointed light beige covering that dissipates then retains.
Nose is caramel malt, citric sherbets, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, woody notes.
Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter orange, light grapefruit notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness.
Drinkable, but as the APA I had from this brewer, rather pedestrian and ’entry level’ for style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, from the Norwegian importer. ABV is 7.5%. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Sweetish notes of caramelized orange marmalade, crystal malts and citrussy and piney American hops. Medium sweet flavour, with the same elements as in the aroma. A little less sweetness and even more hops would be nice, but this is still not a bad shot at an "American" IPA.
