3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a light off-white head. Mild but nice aroma of malt and citric fruit. Flavor is mild as well, soft, sweet light malt with a rather discreet fruitiness and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. I choose to ignore the fact that this is supposed to be an IPA, as otherwise this is actually a quite nice, clean British style session beer. Nothing extraordinary rally, but tasty and balanced in a modest way with no off flavors.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head of moderate size. Some lacings. The aroma is weak, with a light fruityness. Not much malts to be detected. The flavor has some bitterness, a faint touch of toffee, and a biscuity maltyness. Medium body, quite dry, with a decent carbonation level. Bitter finish. Pretty boring this one, not much IPA-ish. 140110

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours amber, nose of citrus fruits, orange a hint of grass and floral notes. Malty sweetness with a touch of hoppy bitterness, the smell is better than the taste which is a real pity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
14th December 2013
Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry malt - sweetish and slightly lagerish. Whispers of spice and lactose. Hops are somewhat in the background but there is a little mellow tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a light spice. Not really an IPA but not a bad beer.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ham-fisted pouring [into a shaker] left a large, frothy white head. Clear, almost copper-gold colour, Massive amount of aroma, both citrusy, but also sweet caramel and grape [not grapefruit]. Nice taste, good sweet/bitter balance. Unfortunately not full bodied or lasting enough. Smooth, oily palate. Overall, nice, but wouldn’t buy it again unless hard up for choice. [rating bumped up by 0.1 upon realising I was being a bit harsh].
