3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light amber, a bit lighter than the average IPA I would say, with a thin, quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is nice piny hops and a bit of sweet malt. The flavor is mostly bold, bitter piny hops with a sturdy backbone bone of syrupy malt. This beer isn’t quite as well balanced as the top of the line IPAs but all the right flavors are there, even if they are are blended perfectly. The mouthfeel is pretty good for the style. Overall solid, inexpensive and very sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a 2", white, foamy head. Lasting and lacy. Clear, golden-orange body. Moderate hop aroma dominated by citrusy American hops. Mainly grapefruit and mandarin orange. Flavor contains white grape, pear and the aforementioned citrus. Biscuit and bready malt underneath as well as some cereal. Hops have an almost vegetal quality, but avoid being offensive. Medium body is somewhat sticky and resinous...distracting. Moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange with an impressive rocky head. Big hoppy citrusy/spicey aroma. Quite light bodied. Big bitter flavour, a little sweet. The finish is long and, you guessed it.... bitter. A very good, no-nonsense IPA.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
During a time when IIPAs and IIIPAs are becoming more and more the norm rather than the exception, it is nice to see a beer that stays true to the English IPA style. Pours a very light copper, somewhat brilliant with golden highlights, good head with decent retention and fine lacing. There’s a distinct fruitiness that jumps out in the aroma which is slightly floral with a very light dose of citrus. There’s also a slight ester from the malt that comes across as biscuit and light tobacco. It tastes lightly sweet which quickly dissipates into a moderately dry finish. Very satisfying and drinkable. They’ve kept the body light enough to enjoy more than one pint. There’s a chewy malt and fruity yeast characteristic which is unmistakably English. A beautiful beer and a classic example of the style.

Got a 6 of this while visiting my brother in Chicago. Filled with strong hops (if not a little artificial). A very good beer for its price.

Beautiful hazy golden colour, full floral hop aroma. The flavour matches the aroma with lots of floral sweetness and a lingering hop bitterness. Beautiful stuff. I order it by the case but wish it were more easily available here in Nottingham.
