Bottled 05/01/13. An orange coloured beer with a tiny wisp of off-white head. A sticky aroma of hops and over sweet malts. Decent orangey citrus hopping in the mouth. Malts too sweet again. Nice flavours apart from the sticky sweetness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml from Brum Selfridges. Meek stone fruit, chip shop batter, aniseed nose. Old school IPA dullness bereft of contemporary hop references. Weak honeyed peach, autumnal apple and slate smeared with caramel flavours. Bronze capped finely with lacing off white. An anachronism. What a crushing disappointment.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Cherry Reds, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt light zesty citrus hop, The flavour is moderate bitter with a light crispy zesty citrus woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A nice refreshing beer but not really a classic IPA. Didn’t really get the Citra at all. I think the idea is to actually throw it into the mash rather than just holding it over the top!
