2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ THT February. Pours a clear golden beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma of no hops at all, slight malty presence is there. Flavor has no bitterness, no hops, just a watery malty mess. Could be a very old bottle off course, otherwise this is no way near an IPA.

Bottle @ tht. Aroma is grainy malt, faint hops, not much else. Flavour is grainy malt with grassy hops. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from the Scottish Real Ale Shop. Pours pale gold, light haze, long-lasting white head. Aromas of over-ripe fruit, light sourness, cooked oranges. Taste is sweet and lightly sour, bitter at the end. Something chalky too. Odd.

Easy going, subtle and pleasing. Not too dry. Well balanced Malt/hop. Good water quality.
Don’t expect to get thumped around the head with hops as it’s a lot more of a light session ale than an IPA.

Was looking forward to this. The sink had more than I did. Far too mild for an IPA, and a rather off-putting taste: so much so that I wondered if it had skunked. Gives you that "water-belly" feeling.

I had high hopes but was slightly disappointed. Not much of an aroma and the flavour is very mild. Quite cloudy but I can live with that. I’d have preferred if it kicked more of a punch.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, 500ml from House of Trembling Madness Bottle Shop, York. Hazy gold with white head. Sweet, malty beer there are hints of fruitiness, indistinguishable, and pretty thin and watery. Certainly no IPA and just a bit of a disappointment, no off flavours but no impact.
