3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice English IPA from a brewer that only makes solid, middle of the road English staples. Most Americans or folks that enjoy hop bombs will be disappointed in that this is not designed to be a "one and done" but instead be a good session ale, not too high in abv, extremely well balanced, and focusing on the finish that entices the drinker to take another sip. Goes very well with a curry. nice.

Bottle from SuperBest, Cph - pours an amber/orange colour, slightly fuzzy, with a small white head. Sweet hoppy and malty, some nice citrus notes, some floral and grassy nuances. Decent overall.

Botella de 50 cl. en la Cťltica (Leůn) Agosto 2012. Una Ipa que para ser britanica no estŠ nada mal. Cuerpo ligero - medio con aromas florales al inicio acaba con ligero amargor suave final. Dentro del mundo Ipa lo mas suave que he tomado, con cierto sabor,. Se puede repetir.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle enjoyed after work. Pours a very slightly hazy amber gold with an initially fluffy 2 finger white head that dissipates quickly to a patchy film and minimal lacing. Aroma is bizarre, slightly grassy, with a lot of celery, a hint of coriander and a tiny touch of strawberry. Taste is an initial light sweetness followed by a medium spicy bitterness. Finish is astringent slightly yeasty bitterness, lively carbonation, medium mouthfeel and not much of an aftertaste, but light spicy bitterness. A strange brew, weird mix of flavours. Not the best.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium gold with a thin, lasting, frothy, lacy, off-white head. Smells of sweet fruit with a light herbal maltiness and a tinge of a citrus grassy hop. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. The taste is moderately sweet with hints of caramel, fruit, malt and finishes light grass, citrus fruity and dry. Hops linger but bring me back for more. An excellent balance of sweet and bitter.
