First off great packaging a good looking beer. Beautiful burnt amber with good carbonation. Nose is medium strength tropical fruit. In the mouth the malt has that slight macro taste but a good reasonably bracing bitter finish finishes off nicely. A bit of tinkering with this and this could become a real go to.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 330ml bottle on 29/10/2010. Has a modest piney hop aroma. Taste wise, thereís good dose of sweet caramel and toasty malt, and little bit of fruit. The finish is reasonably hoppy, though still quite subtle by IPA standards. This has slightly more character than the standard Gage Roads IPA. A decent drop, albeit that itís unlikley to rock your world.

Clear honey coloured body with short head. Figs and apricots in the aroma and the taste, low in carbonation and medium body. Pick the dry hopping. Drinkable.
