Pours a light copper color with only a little head. Smooth and malty with only mild bitterness and a nice hoppy finish. A very nice IPA but not what I would call textbook.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber coloured with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma with some sweet malts and fruits. Not tremendously flavoursome; bit of a pasteurised taste, with some light hops, malts and honey. Not bad though. Medium bodied and quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date on the bottle: 07/June/04. I donít know if thatís June of 04 or June of 07. Poured beautiful clear, dark copper with thin, creamy pearl head. Smell is definite hops, with a little more of a winey intensity. Light sugary malts. Sticky in the glass, but a rather light, syrupy palate. I taste grains in foreground with, potent yet limited hops. A nice version of IPA, leaning more towards a specific flavour than overpowering hops.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 51F Pint Glass. Nice slightly fruity aromas, with medium malts. Light brown color very clear with a light head. Good hop characteristics nothing like an American version much more mild, a bit of a metallic sweetness if that is possible in the taste, Hops were pleasant but not overly dominate. A lighter palate than I expected but not bad at all, medium mouthfeel, not too much carbonation. A decent beer but not like American Hop monsters.
