3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle,11C. Almost clear orange with a white head. Aroma of orange blossoms, earth, caramel, lemon, alcohol. Slightly sweet with biscuit, caramel, peach, then quite earthy bitterness and a dry finish with some wood notes. A little too much carbonation, but perhaps that’s part of the Belgian influence on what remains a very English beer. Lots to like, but the alcohol sticks out too much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Lovely strong IPA aroma, along the lines of an American-style IPA – hoppy and flowery with citrus and pine. The bottle conditioning adds a little hazy muddiness; you can certainly taste the double-addition and five hop mix. A good deal of orange citrus tastes with alcohol backing, plenty of competing flavours, a good dollop of sweetness as well. Not for everybody given the multitude of flavours, but I certainly liked it. [24/04/2010]

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en lett og god, velbalansert ipa med fin aroma. Noe kort ettersmak. Ikke totalt overbevisende men med sin lettdrikkelighet kan den fort gi ganglag for sjelen. Skulle vært gøy å prøve den fra cask. Med litt flaks, neste gang på Charlie’s?
