2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Dean Swift, 03/01/15.
Clear golden with a decent off white covering that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, straw, light citric vibes, pretty mellow all round.
Taste comprises straw, pale malt, melon, grassy, light bread notes, lemon rind.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the close.
So so - NOT an IPA, more of an ESB, no hop presence and at 5.5% ABV is firmly in APA territory anyway!

Clear pale gold beer, decent white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. Orange pith, orange marmalade hops with a touch of floral things. Juicy tropical fruits but very light, still adds colour though. Dry bitterness dominates the dry finish. Not bad just a bit dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned handpump Crowd Of Favours Leeds 14/04/14. A hazy gold coloured beer with a bright white head. Citrussy hoppy. Over harsh flavours. Malts are pale and the excessive bitterness is allowed to dominate. Low drinkability for me.

Cask @ CAMRA NWAF 2014, Derby. Golden yellow, clear with some white head. Light malt citrus aroma. The initial taste is bittersweet with a slightly jarring bitter finish. Ok but not too great, and in no way an IPA.
