3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Draft, at the brewery. Not a hophead’s IPA, but a good one to suggest to friends. All the homebrewers gathered at the brewery break room agreed the color was "orange." A nice fizzy head helps spread the hop aroma. Yes, there is hop bitterness, but as Dick Solomon on "Third Rock" said, "Not in that fun, spanky way." You also get a balanced fruity taste that matches the maltiness nicely. Well done, and in stores at popular prices.
Re-tasted, 2/6/04: Hmm... the hop component is getting stronger, if anything. Not "extreme" yet, but still good (and I ran my finger through a trash can of foam they were using for blow-off in this brew’s fermenter... mmm, bitter!

Bottle from Sainsbury’s . Really enjoyable IPA, gave a decent hoppy hit. Not a lot of carbonation which seems to contradict some other reviews, will definitely need to investigate this one further. .

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper colour, crystal clear with some bubbles now and then, and a nice foamy white head.
Smell is cereals, peaches and cheese. Figs. Caramel. Subtle touch of orange. Maybe honey.
Taste is bitter sour with a hint of sweetness. Full but passes away relatively fast. Metallic. Apples. Watery. Finish is astringent with hints of grapefruit peels.

Not too keen on the gassyness of this beer. After taste is dry and the flavour quickly disapates...not too impressed

Drank at home with Kaspar 25-3-2015. For 5,9% the beer has a fine taste. Not very special. A bit too bitter. Not as rich as some other IPAs (for example Mkkeller I Beat U or Brew Dog Hardocore IPA): slightly boring bitterness.
