Bottle in WS, somewhere in London. Pours golden, with fine bubbles. Aroma of mixed fruit and hops. Wonderfully refreshing fruity taste. Not overly hop bitter. One of the best IPAs I’ve tasted. Very nice indeed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little disappointing in the hop department. Has a slightly bitter nose, very biting. The malt is apparent in the aroma. Nice amber coloring, slightly hazy. Flavor is nice and balanced, which is nice for most, though I prefer more hop profile, hence my disappointment. Smooth finish, with a touch of fruit (citrus) at the end. Overall, not my preferred IPA, but I wouldn’t turn it down.

Pours a light clear amber with a decent off-white bubbly head which dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. Somewhat citrus nose, decent amount of hops - long finish. Light mouthfeel, refreshing. Nice summer drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an average frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible.
Aroma contains light malts (cookie, dark bread, straw), fairly strong hops (flowers, resin, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest,), moderate yeasts (soap, earth) and apple, forest fruits, cherry, pineapple and spices.
Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light bitter and light acidic and finishing in bitter.
Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation.
A nice IPA loaded with hoppy fruits and backed up by enough malts.

Light, clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and freshly cut grass. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with oranges and lemons. Good session IPA and a great value.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber body, nice white head, slightly hazy, low carbonation. Intense floral, herbal and perfume notes in the aroma; traces of yeast in the background. Taste is mildly sweet (caramel, licorice) beautifully, balanced by a strong nutty, resiny and dry hops profile, and followed by a very long and pleasant finish, definitely bitter. Not an extreme IPA but a very well balanced and addictive brew.
