2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at Borough Market in London. Nice fruity hops aroma. Watery super bubbly fizzy palate - way way too much and unpleasant. Taste is slightly fruity hops. Unfortunately like other disappointing session IPAs - watery, empty tasting. Couldn't finish.

Sample at SBWF 2014.
Slightly hazy orange with a white head. Fresh with hops, citrus, hay, some pineapple and light malt. On the light side but still a descent one.

Can from Cotteridge Wines. Smells good - pineapple and so forth, taste is crisply crisp. Cleanly clean. And lengthily tasty. Big Bang for abv. Love this brewery tonight.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy orange, large white head; tropical fruit aroma; the initial hit of peach / melon fruitiness is quickly overwhelmed by a far too agressive bitterness and too much carbonation; a fizzy mess; poor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg, half-pint in the Old Red Cow, Smithfield London on 12th Sep 2014. Cloudy yellow with a full white crown. Aroma was of grapefruit and other bittering citrus fruits. The taste was crisp and also citrus bitter, yet with a mild malt underbelly. Decent. A little ’fizzy’ for my palate but it suited the flavours.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (@ Fourpure, Bermondsey): Deep golden, hazy, small, but really stable loose White head; quite solid herbal-grapefruity nose; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, very light bodied, as expected; lingering dry grapefruity finish. Good, lacks a bit the balancing sweetness...
