3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a small white head and thin lacing. Aroma is earthy and citrusy. Taste is earthy and citrus hoppy bitterness with some malty sweetness coming through as well. Medium body and light carbonation. An enticing enough IPA, but nothing really stands out on this one.

This was the first beer this excellent brewery bottled. A bit dissapointing as it was cloudy.This is something I dont mind in a wheat beer but dont feel too comfortable with it in a pale ale.Pleasant hoppiness with some citrus seeping through but the cloudiness still put me of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lighter, copper color with lots of head out of the bottle. Again a metallic edge--what's with Durham and this metallic flavor? The water? Carbonation gives a frothy body, somewhat oily but not hugely. Nutty, slightly acidic, citric, strong bitterness, long finish. Smoother with the yeast poured from the bottle. Sweet-dry thing going on, dry dominating the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Clear gold, no head. This struck me as more of a Golden than a IPA. Hops are more backgroundish, rather than being the main feature. Smooth, easy drinking yes, but in this case easy drining means that the tongue is not stunned by overt hop content. Certainly pleasant, but not a show stopper.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle conditioned. Hazy gold, good rocky white head and moderate condition. Excellent IPA type hop aromas mixed with honey and yeast. Promise in the nose is rewarded in the mouth with good intense hop bitterness that never gets out of control, held in check by sweet honey and grapefruit that stretches out into the finish. And its good and strong.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bardzo dobre IPA ale specjalne, mocniejsze. Tresciwe i gozkie. Chmiele tu goruja, zwlaszcza zatecki daje goryczke na sporym poziomie. Piana spora i wysoka, a przy tym trwala. Metnosc dosc spora co cieszy w brytyjskich piwach bo to jest rzadkoscia.
