3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a dark orange color with a pretty nice sized white head. Lacing around the glass sticks nicely and doesn’t fade to fast. Smell of citrus and hops sticks out. Flavor of hops and malts. Slightly bitter but very good.

Very nice hoppy beer. Clean fresh tasting citrusy hops really stand out, and thick feel to it carries nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 5.9%. Good caramelly and grassy aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, with a caramelly sweetness and a good grassy hop flavour. Mild bitterness, not so strong, but clean. Well-balanced. Good mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Porterhouse, Dublin.
Deep gold body, thick persistant white foam.
Aggressive hop aroma; lots of pine and grapefruit.
Full body, sticky texture, high carbonation.
Even more brutal hop on the body, spicy woodiness, citrus rind, very aggressive bitterness making a highly dry finish.
Full on IPA, that lacks a bit of malt backbone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at RNH. Pours a light clear copper with a nice lasting frothy head. Aroma is clean grassy herbal and light citrus hops- doughy malts, light caramel and toffee and fairly fruity even for the style. Flavor is light citrus - mostly clean overall, toasted malts, light crystal, slight Amarillo tropical note, light pine and more citrus as it warms with some extra fruity hints as well- finish is pretty clean- well balanced and nice standard IPA.

Pours orange with white head, aroma is citrusy hops with some bready malt. Taste is fruity up front with orange and lemon, leading into a biscuity and bready malt that finishes bitter. Nice IPA.
