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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the shop on Holy Island, served cool. Orange with a fluffy white head. Burnt Sugar aroma. Orange marmalade and marzipan in the flavour, with some zesty floral hops. Definitely an English version of an IPA. Nice alcohol kick. Iíve yet to be disappointed by this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice malty aroma. This is Durhamís interpretation of an IPA but there are lots of Northern English malts about it. It seems to me like a very strong and tasty bitter, itís very nice. On cask I reckon I could knoeck back plenty of these.Malty & nicely bitter. Good Stuff.

Bottle from the brewery. Amber colour with some cream suds. An enjoyable IPA. Quite spicey with a nice bitterness and citrus notes. A solid beer rather than a spectacular one.

Bottle (500ml). Poured cloudy copper with orange highlights and a good sized frothy white head which was mostly lasting. A sweet tropical hop aroma with strong notes of apricots, pineapple, passionfruit, rich caramel malts and some light piney/floral notes. Flavor was of smooth caramel malts with a mild earthy hop bitterness, guava, pineapple and dry peaches towards the finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a good length finish.
