2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drunk at Cotteridge Wines very very good beer sampling party. Their version of an IPA is not really a version that I would bother with again. Beause itís not an IPA. Who says it is? Iím not sure. Does anyone? Not me. I donít. Do you?

Bottle, Waitrose Ponteland. Good clean copper with a fairly thick white head. Palate and nose are both well balanced, loads of citrus hops and well balanced malt. Lovely!

Bottle. Hazy deep amber gold with a thick cream head. Initial nose is musty wheat with hints of orange peel and marmalade. Taste is orangey, with a hint of warming alcohol, sweet maltiness and a nice long warming finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine Shop Darlington. Poured a clear golden orange amber colour, frothy fine white head and aroma of spicy citrus. Taste is malt caramel with pine and a citrusy note, through to a slightly woody light dry bitter finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Quite drinkable IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted 23/10/2005. 500ml bottle-conditioned, from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington.
Hazy, deep, yellow-gold with little visible carbonation and a large, white, head that collapses to a skinny film. Lovely little floaties prove this beerís claim of being an unfiltered real ale. Citrus and that herbacious, noble hop, aroma dominate the nose. Some background hints of crystal malt. Dry, dry, dry... little malt shows through in the flavour, itís all hops, aloe vera, pepper, lemon leaves. Reminiscent of my first homebrew lager - dry and very hoppy. Long, lingering, bitter finish. Well made but a bit over the top, for me, in the hop department. Iím sure would be appreciated by lovers of dry APAís or lager drinkers looking to try an ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5ooml b/c. Murky orange and quite talkative from lenghty bottle conditioning (held on to this one for a while). A whiff of light perfume, some warm alcohol and almost essence. Rich fullness, a touch of orangey resin with hot hops and light malt flavours lurking in the distance. Nice enough but doesnít linger long enough of leave you with that syrupy resinous coating that you think you are in for.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Gravity as Durham Magnificat) Amber with no head. Citrus hop scent. Well balanced. Quite dry. Oranges in the mouth and some sugars on the end but not as sweet as the ABV suggests. Slight kick at the end but easy drinking.
