2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, dark yellow color with lots of head and upon closer inspection there are thousands of small particles floating around. The aroma is rather muted with some grain notes. This definitely does not have the hop presence usually found in IPAs. The taste is bitter citrus with a very dry finish. The body is medium. A below average IPA.

Aroma: grassy, floral hops. Appearance: cloudy gold, small white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters in the background, weirdly a bit sour, quite bitter towards the long finish. Overall: OK IIPA, but does not stand out against the fierce competition. Bottle from Oddbins, Pimlico.

2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on 12/4/14. Highly enticing aroma of pine and fruit salad; particularly citrus, banana and mild coconut. Slight soapiness. Loose, bubbly head over a golden body with floaters. Immediately dry and bitter, but not overpowering. Medium bodied, obvious high ABV. Light carbonation and long, bitter finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yellow gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma - citrus hops, touch of sherbet, slight earthiness, lemon drops. Taste - slightly metallic, some grapefruit bitterness, lemon peel. Bitterness is well balanced. Not full of malt sweetness like other american IPA’s of this abv and has a good mouthfeel and has a good drinkability. More hop aroma and flavour and this would be a decent IPA!
