3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear copper colour with some head. Aroma is pleasant dominated by hops giving a floral, grassy, slightly metallic notes. Medium body with good carbonation. Flavour starts with sweet rich malt and develops some hoppy complex fruit and spice flavours leading to some nice bitterness in in the finish. Overall a very pleasant, but restrained IPA, with hops flavour, but moderate bitterness on a malty base.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Not very hopsy for an IPA but that’s a plus in my book. There is still a hint of hops bitterness but it is well balanced and subtle. Nice rich flavour with some honey smoothness akin to a Belgian ale. Balanced by citrus elements. A very well rounded and accessible craft beer.

Been meaning to rate this one for a while. Smells pleasant with hops dominating. The taste mostly consists of citrus hops and malty character, all very light for an IPA. . Nothing overally impressing and amazing about this beer, however all up its a very sessionable beer.

330ml Bottle. Pours Dark Golden in colour, with a white head that dissipates quickly. Has a subtle hop aroma. A malt driven beer, disappointing in the hop department for an IPA. Not that impressed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Unadventerous and somewhat dumb and sweet but I wouldn’t have expected much more from this brewer. Floral aromas and candied sweetness on the nose and the palate is a light touch with more of the same. Some bitterness evident albeit it very mild and a bit muddled; more PoW rather than clan new world.

Amber poor with small head that disappears quickly. Nice rich biscuity malt flavours with slight pleasant hop notes. The palate is strong caramal malt. Realy pleasant beer

Pours an amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity with caramel and toffee. Taste is also fruity with caramel and toffee with light hoppy finish. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours lovely rich amber with small compact head that doesn’t last. Wonderful rich fruit and dry powered malt bouquet balanced with citrusy floral hop notes. The palate is strong caramal malt that delivers the complex long hop character. This beer finishes nicely...I’m overall surprised....well done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hint of coffee in taste and aroma. First taste gives impression of thick IPA but it is actually quite light. Did seem a bit fizzy but did retain a good head.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is of caramalts and bit of toffee and the flavour backs that up, unfortunately there its much hop flavour/aroma to it, hence very disapoint for an IPA.
