Bottle at home from ales by mail, month past its BBE.
Light chestnut, offwhite lacing, grapefruit pith and red fruits, butterscotch and melon. Full bodied, low carbonation, sweet malt, green apple sharpness, dry bitterness, long herbal dry finish. Maybe that summer heat had an effect.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg at The Beagle-15th May 2013. Bready aroma. Dark orange colour. Not overly carbonated despite dispense method. Malt is too dominant in the flavour profile for my tastes. Reminds me a bit of SNPA for some reason. Wonder if there's Cascade in there?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. It pours clear orangy-amber with a small white head. The nose is bready, soft orange, light toast, wood, . The taste is juicy fruit, zesty orange, grapefruit, pine, bread, grain, light spice and caramel with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Strong malty backbone to it. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not exactly bursting with flavour, but well balanced and pretty drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Better from the bottle thus far, well balanced but more towards the biscuit side than the hop bomb, which works really well. Well carbonated and looks the part. Crisp, also had as pint from the crate brewery, pleasingly served not too cold. Fairly standard ipa. The bitter and the biscuit are well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light amber small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee, grassy - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and caramel sweetish flavor, grassy - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, caramel - some toffee, lots of grassy - herbal hoppyness. Caramel sweetish IPA - too much caramel for me.
