3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange pour with a white head. Kind of a weird nose. Hints of banana but an otherwise straightforward bread, floral hop, pine, and grapefruit aroma. Slight sweetness of bread and banana on the palate. Some pine bitterness, grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. A touch of grass and tropical fruit on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with a small, short-lived, off-white head. The aroma is all things Falconer’s Flight - tropical fruits and citrus fruits (grapefruit and lemon) accompanied by a mild floral component and a tea biscuit backbone. Medium-bodied and thin with vibrant carbonation. Well, this is an IPA and it’s bitter, so no real surprises here. Short, crisp, medium-bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from La Atlántica bottle shop, Santiago de Compostela consumed at Frank (camper) at Camping Deva Gijon, Asturias, Wednesday 25th June 2014 Pours dark orangey actually more a murky amber with a sticky creamy lasting white head. Once again I have to confess to being somewhat underwhelmed by these beers frm this brewery, I cannot see a BBD on the bottle so cannot be sure how fresh it is, but as Loz suggested maybe they’re not so fresh. There is a hoppiness and bitterness here but somehow the sticky, slightly syrupy incessant malts overide all. Ok A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Draft. One of the best IPAs I have ever had. Juicy almost berry-like aroma and flavor. Nectar of the gods.
Bottle it was hugely disappointing.
