3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 355ml, from Sainsburys, Banbury. Dark amber with white head. I was prepared to be blown away, but wasn’t, sure there are hops in there, but they lacked some character and the malty sweetness is a bit odd for a true IPA, it masked much of the hop. There is bitterness in the finish with a fruity note, quite like Chinese gooseberries. A reasonable beer without being exceptional.

cloudy orange, thick meium sized offwhite head. looks real nice.
aroma can be detected far away from the glass. strong aroma of sweet pine, sweet grapefruit. quite dry. but also sweet. great simple hoppy aroma.
flavor is hoppy, malty sweet, hops are sweet but not fruity, beer is quite dry. malts and hops balance nicely. aftertaste is dry and slightly malty sweet. truly impressive given the alc %. very nice IPA.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. [thank you, Yngwie]
Pours a nice hazy pale amber with a 2 cm thich creamy white head on top. Wonderful lacing in big blotches. Aroma is strong, with lots of pine hops, mixing with caramel, grapefruit, light roastiness. Low to medium carbonation and a rather creamy feel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, lots of caramel and herbal hoppy sweetness. Middle is dry and pine-like hoppy, before a long lingering dry aftertaste of fruity hops mixed with that light roast that appeared in the aroma as well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2015 Light amber color, frothy head. Strong hops and grapefruit aroma. Blackcurrant. Oily hoppy flavor with blackcurrant and a bit of citrus. Hoppy, oily aftertaste. Very nice beer, big in aroma and taste, but maybe just a bit onedimensional.
12 years later: Bottle, golden color. Soft oily hops and grapefruit in the aroma. Oily grassy citric hopbityter flavor with hints of peach and pineapple. Tasty IPA, pleasant to drink.
