3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head is robust, the body cloudy and golden. It smells malty, bitter, hoppy. The taste is hoppy, intensive, bitter, a bit hay-grassy-bitter, less fruity. Ok, I love bitterness but this IPA could have a bit more fruitiness in my opinion. Still good. 13/11/10/11/-/11

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Cloudy orange, small white head. Aroma: sweet, hoppy, grassy, vanilla, malt, a little fruity. Flavour: bitter, lots of lemon & spice, quite the fresh cut grass flavour running through it, long lemon bitter finish. It’s just a bit muddled for me... Odd.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ The Black Sheep, Dublin. Rather weak aroma for being a IPA, but the tropical fruits and floral notes are noticeable. Tastes better, and more: Caramel, grape, resin and peach. High bitterness, lacks in sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Keg dispense at the Black Sheep launch night. Hazy orange pour with thin white head. Lots of citrus in the aroma - lime especially - with some grapefruit too. Taste follows on with plenty of really waxy, pithy lime and grapefruit. Some bready, yeasty flavour in there too, as well as a bit of a metallic bite. Bitterness is fairly heavy handed, mouthfeel medium but quite rough. Definitely in need of a bit of refinement, not an easy-drinker by any means. This is a step in the right direction for Irish brewers, so kudos to Chris and the team for actually throwing some hops in the brew kettle.
