4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Super resiny nose in the bottle which remains persistent and piercing in the glass. Rich golden brown with a fine tight level of pale magnolia foam. A sweet malt core surrounded by an iron ring of lingering hop attack. Casually burly and beautifully long and intense. Not just AOK. Its the best UK IPA at the minute. No doubt in my mind.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[500ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Pours a slightly hazy coppery amber, with a decent white head. At first, the aroma is all piney and resinous, but some grapefruit and lemon are in evidence as well. Flavour is grapefruit, lemon and lime, balanced really well with resinous pine, becoming sweet and sticky on the finish. Fabulous

Bottle at home, thanks to Craig (Zimbo) - 20/12/12. Chilled in the fridge for about an hour - spot on!
Pours a clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge of the glass and forms a film atop. Some lacing ensues.
Nose is big on pine resin, bitter hops, grapefruit, ripe mango, orange pith.
Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, bitter hops, pine, mango, juicy citrus, bitter tastic!
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, palate is pitch perfect.
A most excellent IPA !

Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours dark, cloudy red-gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely toasty pine nose, some ripe grapefruit. Medium sweet flavour, loads of pine, some toasty leaves and grass, lots of juice grapefruit, orange and melon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderately resinous finish, juicy ripe citrus, plenty more piney hops. Great balance here. Super drinkable stuff. Great work.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Keg at Cloisters. Slightly hazy vivid orange amber, thin white cap. Pine, light juicy fruits, slightly soapy, pine resin, but in a good way. Lovely rich malt body, but not cloying. Bags of lovely juicy fruit, peaches, big grapefruit, I get the green banana thing too. Thereís a very unique fruit note too, not sure what. Guava maybe? Huge puckering bitterness, tastes like a full-on fresh US IPA. Superb...... Bottle at home. Yep, still awesome. Slightly less bitter though, a thing I seem to notice with all Cromartyís bottles. Not that Iím complaining - bags of fruity malty juicy goodness and a slight peppery yeasty thing that I donít remember from keg. Lovely. 4.1

Poured from bottle. Fresh aroma, overwhelming rich, hoppy taste and with a finish that sticks with you. An outstanding IPA in my books!

Aroma: Huge tropical and pine hop aroma. Very resinous.
Appearance: Hazy, deep amber body with a thin white head that quickly fades.
Taste: Pine and caramel - this really showcases the American hops well. Bitter, dry citrus flavour. Lovely.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a slightly sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation.
Overall: Delicious hoppy and resinous beer. Even after immediately opening the bottle, the aroma was pungent and enticing.

Initially very gassy nose after opening/pouring before enveloping into waves of sprucey citrus squash. A sparkler gradient of hazey beige body, loose head. Fleshy peach and bold mandarin on the initial taste with a kind of shandy pine kick to the palate and a slick, dulche sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. Dices of lime and an acai bitterness to the finish.
A real sit down and take notice beer here. Would easily stand up against the palate impaling hop quality of a Kernel or ping of a Magic Rock as well as the bold malt refreshment of a Flying Dog or Odell. Iím assuming the water quality perhaps makes a big difference, well worth getting hold of.
(Quite excited to crack it open during the football but did notice a cheap gas heater waft when the cap came off. I guess itís still quite young, but itís also not travelled very far to get into my glass!)

Keg at Brewdog Camden. It pours deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is pine, fresh citrus, green banana, earth and resin. The taste is pine, earth, leaf, sherbet, fresh citrus, tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit), resin and light alcohol, with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel as it warms up a touch. Flavoursome, well balanced and smooth. Highly drinkable.
