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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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?

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.

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.

Bottle. Amber colour with a nice but moslty diminishing off white head. Aroma dominated by malt, but with hoppy notes. Nice hoppy finish.
