3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. They used all of the right words in their description, and this one looks right and smells great. But the taste, while solid, doesn’t quite measure up. That’s not not to say, however, that this isn’t a solid, drinkable, and somewhat different (good thing) pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 355ml at The Jam Factory, staggeringly expensive, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite sweet on the palate but with the bonus of a light citrusy hop character, some grapefruit, some lemonade. Sweet biscuit malt, good but not £5:75 worth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper with a large head that never gives up the last finger, swirls and streaks of lace. Good looking. Another typical, but good, IPA - Solid caramel malt in combat with cleansing pine and floral hops, with both winning big in the long finish. Satisfying in a big way.
