2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to tulip glass. I think this must have been waaaay past itís prime, if I ever get a chance to score a fresh one I will re-rate. Pours golden cloudy orangey with a lot foamy white head. Munich malts on the nose, no hop presence whatsoever, this smelled like a run of the mill APA. Taste was more of the same, this has to be long past itís time of goodness. Bitterness is quite low, the malt presence is pretty much all Iím tasting. Based on all the other characteristics of this beer you can tell its well made, the mouthfeel and carbonation are both very pleasing and again probably quite nice when fresh. This came across the country in a car and was one of the last beers I got after. Better luck next time methinks!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle picked up from Fyne Ales Brewery, consumed at Craigendmuir campsite, Stepps, Nr Glasgow, Thursday 18th June 2015 Pours hazy gold/orange with a white sticky head. Itís fine but no great shakes, itís American so you get the standard American hoppy IPA flavour which more often than not tends to errí towards malty and a touch too sweet. Some sweet orange and rind, yes itís fine. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

Had on draft at the brewery. Tropical fruit, hoppy, clean with very little grassy hop character. Great IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Delicate aroma with floral hop tones. Fairly lightly flavoured for an IPA but the balance is good. Moderate bitterness makes for a good session beer. Nice that the maltiness is retained well.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is not that pronounced for an IPA. The body is creamy, but lacking bitterness. Some metallic taste in there. Not a good beer, or at least not this bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Double Mountain Hop Lava) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 7%
Pale orange colour on the body, lazy activity in it. Slightly hazy, wiht a small and somewhat thin, white head on top, with good retention nevertheless, but minimal lacing on the glass.
Caramel malts on the aroma with just a hint of citrus and grapefruit, some floral touches too.
Moderate sweet taste at first, giving its place to a quite strong bitterness almost straight away. Caramel malts, grapefruit, orange, straw, grass, citrus, moderate hoppy.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry palate.
Quite good, not very aromatic but the bitterness made it up for me.

Growler - Cloudy dark hay color. Dry hop flavor but the hop flavor is not very strong or over powering. Very little sweetness. Not very complex on the nose or palate.
