3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Plenty of big hop aroma and flavour with this beer. It really packs a hoppy punch. Has a very pale colour and is lovely and crisp and dry in the finish which balance well with the hop flavour and bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle at Churchkey. Served in a stange.
Pours a golden-peach color with a good white head and some nice lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some very nice tropical fruit character and a bit of citrus. The flavor is lightly-malty and has some faint tropical character. Nothing too over the top. Light body with good carbonation and moderate bitterness. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle shared by EZAnt. Poured a good looking body of crystal clear burnt orange with some large clinging bubbles under an ugly small soapy white head. Aroma shows what the trip to the US can do to an IPA. Notes of caramel, citrus, lemon and flowers but it’s not crisp nor fresh. Body is very dry but coats your entire mouth and has a light bitter finish. Flavor of honey, citrus, wax, and honey topped bread. This is interesting and probably really good when fresh.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle. The aroma is fantastic. They must have used mounds of aroma (and flavour) hops. It’s not terribly bitter, though, but perhaps that is why this one is so drinkable. Lots of floral and citrus flavour and aroma. The malt profile is subtle but effective. Great beer.

Bottle 6/9-11. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, apricot, resin and caramel. Dark amber color w small offw head. Taste of hoppy bitterness throughout, w apricots, resin and sweet caramel. Medium body. Found it behind some other bottles, should have had it a long time ago. Still very very good though. This is the way I want my IPAs!

was afraid this was not going to be still good, nice floral and some resin on the nose.kinda golden color. thin white head. flavor is a touch old but the hops still come off pretty good and i think this would be dynamite on tap.
