4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 355ml bottle on 15/6/2012. Pours a relatively clear dark golden with a biggish head. Has a lovely, big, hoppy aroma which includes caramel, toffee and citrus fruit. This is beautifully balanced flavour wise, with lots of caramel malt, orange, lemon, peach and masses of marmalade, followed by a big dose of dry, resiny, grapefruity hops. The texture is quite oily. A truly superb IPA.

Pours dark orange/Amber with a smallish white head. Aroma is pine and full on caramel/malt. Taste is malty upfront with grapefruit/citrus/pine and then a strong bitterness. I like the finish to it. Solid

Wow, I’ve never had one of these before and it’s very tasty. Big citrus hoppy smell that tastes nice and refreshing going down then a long and crisp but not overly bitterness. Yum

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent IPA with a dominant hop bitterness that manages to remain well kept in check by the body and creamy texture. Long finish.

Deep, lightly clouded, red-orange-brown. Reasonable amount of frothy tan head. Molasses, some roasted notes, pine, some resin. Quite bitter, slightly sweet. Chewy, medium body, oily, quite effervescent, quite acidic. Alcohol reasonably upfront. Good.

Pours amber color with a medium head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Malt and hops are beautifully balanced. Taste is citrusy sweet, malty and transforms into a nice, hoppy, longlasting bitter finish. Very good IPA!

12 oz can. Aroma: malty, resinous, and very piney. Taste/Palate: crisp and sweet throughout; finishes with a long bitterness. The malt backbone almost keeps up with the bittering hops in this one, but not quite. Nevertheless, a pretty fantastic beer!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz can. Color is darker, more of a copper amber color. First sip is very hoppy and bitter. Has a grassy, barnyard flavor at first but then the bitterness takes over and it finishes like a nice, true, "in your face" IPA.
