4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Loads of modern hops, citrus, pine, grapefruit and quite grapes, mixed with a very English (not quite clean but dry) yeast. Very dry bitter body, string astringent ending. But drinkable and very much so for 7.6%! Not very balanced but I really like it. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange-amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is surprisingly filled with citrus notes to it, which made it quite inviting. Taste is actually a bit chalky and bitter, with an almost burnt aftertaste to it. Odd and not all that pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. There is a mixture of malt and melon fruit on the aroma which is pleasant enough. Beer looks strong in the glass with a deep amber colour and a sturdy cap of foam. Sits in the mouth well and finishes with a bit of a metallic edge on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops and fruit, the latter being rather dominant for a beer within this style. Bitter, hoppy flavour, wi well pronounced sweetish, fruity notes. Bitter afteraste. Nice but tastes more like a DIPA without the ABV peculiar to that style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with flowers, dirt and grass. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall an average but funny beer.

slightly hazy amber with pillowy beige head. Pithy mandarins and Dusty hopsacks, fruity. Sprightly carbonation, pithy, slightly chalky pithy bitterness. Dry finish. Quite austere and tonnes of pith...would make a good aperitif
