3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a great IPA. Has a weird fruity taste to it that doesn’t go over well. Hops aren’t very strong either, blah, pass.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Dinosaur Bar-BQ
Pours rather unclear, darker amber . Small white head ( rather stable )
Smell is unintense, slightly bittered malty scent . Taste is mild bitter . Malty , light aroma , but not as much as you’d expect from a US IPA . finish is a bit perfumy-fruity ... Seems to me like hopextracts, though I am not sure about that.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 Light brown with off white head. Light malt and earthy hop aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, some lemon citrus and hint of grassy hop. Slightly dry lemon finish. Bitterness and hop flavors more like a pale ale than an IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well-balanced English style IPA with a gentle but pronounced pine bitterness and some tropical fruit. A little too light on the body but quite refreshing.

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - thought it would be super hoppy based on the name but it wasn’t. It was more bitter than hoppy. Clear golden color, not much aroma. Good but not great.

Bottle with pat and vinny. Pours a clear orange golden with thin white soapy head and lacing. Aroma is apricot, fruity malt, and vague bitter character. Mouthfeel is light with notes of lemon, fruity malt, light bitterness, some soap and perfume character.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown body with thin head. Minimal lacing. More of a malty aroma than the punch of hops I was expecting. Some citrusy hops are noticeable. Bitter hop flavor up front that is balanced out with citrus notes. Overall, drinkable, but nothing to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber-orange with a half finger off white head which fades to very little lacing. aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, light bready malts, and some toffee. Taste is about the same as the aroma, with the malt notes dominating. Has a medium body with a semi watery mouthfeel, with a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-short finish. Overall, a decent English style IPA that is lacking a bit in complexity and body.

Light copper color with an off-white head. Fruity hop aroma, maybe a hint of tropical fruit. Not very bitter on the palate. Some maltiness on the palate. Easy drinking.
