Bottle. A clear one, golden in color and a dense, white head leaving some lacings. Citrusy and grassy on the nose, some maltyness. Quite nice. It’s rather bitter, with grapefruit peel and a nice malty backdrop. Dry and medium to full bodied. Bitter finish. A quite nice one, pleasantly bitter, and sort of quenching. 110820

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, from ABM, 06/07/14.
Hazed golden orange with a good sized white head of bubbles.
Nose is orange marmalade, straw, bread dough, citric peel, light floral notes, caramel.
Taste comprises floral hops, light minerals, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, honey, pithy citrics, mineral wash.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sharp citric and earthy hop bitterness in the close.
Ok stuff, I’d put this more as an APA than IPA bearing in mind the ABV and hop contents.

Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight off-white head. Soft grapefruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit and floral. Some malt background. It’s definitely on the bitter side. Just a lot different from US ales. Which in this case seems to be a good thing.
