4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Portsmouth brewery snifter.
The color is a bright, cloudy yellow with a light white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is bright hops in the nose some good sweetness that reminds me of spring. There is some grassy aromas and a nice bright orange and mango aroma with smelled like there was fruit in this beer.
The flavor is biscuit dough flavor at first with a tease of citrus and a tease of pine then a smack of bitterness. There is a slight push of bitterness that takes you aback before letting of earthy pine in. Resiny citrus flavor runs deep in this beer like a vain breathing life into the back-end where more bitterness punishes briefly before letting go.
The feel of this beer is a medium which does try to be a bigger beer. The bitterness lingers a bit and makes it feel heavy but only briefly.
This beer does go down well even with a certain amount of finessing. A hop lover must try.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light golden colour with an almost pale green tinge in some light. Crisp white head with sturdy lace. Grass and pineapple aroma, smells somewhat tropical - very unique. Tastes a light citrus flavours with big long lasting bitterness. Not too bad, not great though. Palate is a little watery, but smooth finish and easy to drink.

Keg and bottle at Craft Farringdon. Keg has zingy citrus underripe orange peel and fresh pine flavours. Strong hop hit which doesn’t linger, little subtlety otherwise, making it a dangerously drinkable 7.6%. Bottle more subtle. Warmer Seville orange finish and malts anchor the flavour. Hops linger pleasantly, like Marvin Gaye, as opposed to the James Brown hit and run of the keg. Despite this, thoroughly enjoyable in both guises. The bottle is 7%; but what’s 0.6% between friends.

Light yellow/gold with a small head. Slight hint of tropical fruits with some malty backbone. Fruity with medium bitterness, slightly over the top malty. Very east coast. Maybe also past its prime? decent.

Deep bitter IPA flavor. Wonderful hop aroma. But Missing a bit of complexity from the hops in both aroma and taste. If long lasting bitterness is what you are after she packs a punch

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog. Pale orange or dark yellow, quite vibrant, hazy, still, small white head. Aroma of passionfruit and caramel. Body is medium, pretty foamy. Taste is light citrus, quite tart, bubblegum, a touch of fabric plasters, maybe even a bit salty. Suggests Galaxy hops.
