3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co Brixton. It pours hazy golden, with a medium off-white head. The nose is dough, spice, green banana, citrus pith, orange and tangerine. The taste is banana, bitter grapefruit, spice, astringency, lemon pith, faint chlorine and alcohol warmth, with a bitter, lightly spicy finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Don’t think this clash of styles quite works in this case as the yeast takes over.

Bottle dated 10.06.14. Ripe fruit aromas. Bright golden appearance with a pillowy and reasonably maintained head. Well balanced medium bitterness and a little sourness to taste. Lasting honey sweetness. Fairly full, chewy texture with moderately high carbonation. Overall a highly drinkable 7.2 % but lacking a little complexity.

Bottle. Bought Feb 2014; BB date June 2014; Drank Feb 2014. Orangey Gold in colour. Clear. Average off-white head. Decent lacing. Very Yeasty. Quite Spicy. Fruity; oranges citrus, some grapefruit, hint of lemon. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; sweet malts, some caramel. Slightly syrupy. Reasonable balance between the yeast and the hops. Initially sweetish yeasty fruity hoppy; but becomes increasingly bitter and dry towards the finish. Liked this. Nice English "Belgian-style IPA"!
