3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 0.5l Bottle. Pours amber, slightly murky with a good frothy white head. Aroma is herbal, resiny hops and a sweet caramel background. Taste is really quite good, similar herbal and resiny hops throughout, quite a sweet and malty background then a slightly citrus, strongly hopped finish with some alcohol. Really nice.

a little disappointed by this.
i thought it was a bit on the tart side and didn’t really have much in the way of a hop profile. maybe i got a duff bottle
not up to the usual durham high standards.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Exceedingly disappointing beer for the price and previous ratings. Poured a golden colour with a poor head, fairly hop driven but without the spiciness you usually get from APA’s thin body with an overwhelming flavour of bad homebrew. In fact i threw it out and opened up a homebrew and enjoyed it much more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at WilliamK, Helsinki. Pours hazy bronze with medium-sized dense head. Aroma has floral hoppiness with fresh fruity elements and some maltiness in the background. Taste is bitter and especially in the finish dry. Taste is quite typical for a British IPAs, hop presence isn’t as strong as in American IPAs. Fruity flavours dominate. Palate is medium bodied and slick, very drinkable. This is indeed a British interpretation of IPA, not as robust - or rich - as American ones but more balanced and easier to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle -- NIce cloudy golden yellow typical of the style with a medium fluffy white head with a little retention and lacing. Lots of fruit in the aroma: passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus in general, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. Vaguely creamy palate with some noticeable carbonation. The flavour is a repeat of the aroma but with a nice bitter finish and quite prominent alcohol. Quite good.

Pours cloudy yellow/orange with frothy head. A light caramel with an earthy pine needle citrous aroma. Tasty beer, this brewery has yet to dissapoint.

Lacks character compared to the Bombay 106, perfectly pleasant but could do with more hops

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pillowey head. Quite a perfumed taste. Rather unusual in that the taste is not orangey, lemoney or grapefruit. I prefer other Durham bottle-conditioned beers.
