500ml bottle. This one was not as big and bold as I expected it to be however it was still very good. Shimmery hazy golden amber colour with a softish sand coloured head. Big full in your face hop aroma gets the senses going. Long lasting aftertaste is almost medicinal and vinegary tart. For value for money I believe that Epic’s Armeggedon IPA is better value. This still hits the spot though and it is quite a good beer.

Wonderful drinking IPA. Nothing special looking, a little head on yellow coloured body. More wood than hop aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, great drinkability. The hoppiness was there, it was terrifically well rounded. Bottle from Premiere Gourmet, thanks for picking up Jon.

Pours a clear gold-green with a fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, fruit, sweet, bread. Taste is slightly sour, mild, citrus, pine, orange zest. Not at all what I was expecting. Medium carbonation; nice mouth feel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Star Grocery. Pours dark golden with a thin off-white head and a musty oak aroma. There is a slightly astringent citrus flavor over a heavy caramel malt background with a hint of tropical fruit. There is a sharply bitter finish. Quite complex for an IPA.

Strange flavor here. I doubt this is fresh. Get an annoying tangy flavor, with maybe some unpleasant herbalness.
