3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unfortunately I have to drink this from a solo cup so my appearance rating may be off. Bottle, heavy head pour. Drinking on feb 17 2013 (bottled on oct 4 2012) so I hope its still "fresh". Grassy and flat :(. Tastes like it would have been excellent if I got to it earlier. Citrus aroma. Medium body/medium bitter. Refreshing. Will try and rate again with a fresher bottle.

Very good fresh hop taste. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Better than most apa offerings.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is yeast, pine, tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of biscuit malts. The flavor is grapefruit, tropical fruit, mild to medium hop resin, malts and a long and heavy bitterness in the finish. Can’t remember if I’ve had a wet hop APA as opposed to an IPA; either way this was great.

Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Some pine like, spruce notes on opening, the beer itself was slightly sweeter than the aroma suggested. Grassy hops push through the lighter, fruity body, fresh, some hay, some herbs. Reasonable.

Tastes bitter, grassy and earthy. It was just average though. Nothing made it stand out from the others.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours clear copper with a finger of white head, light carbonation, some hop sediment. The aroma has grassy, resiny hops with a nice caramel malt balance. The taste is lightly bitter, grassy, earthy, almost dirty hop flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Nice burnt orange with moderate off-white head. Fresh, piney aroma. Characteristic of an IPA and similar to Titan and Hercules though more relaxed and much more approachable. Ample bitterness with a slightly sweet finish. Nice.

Pours clear burnt orange with a small tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus and cereal. Overall bitter with a sweet finish. Pretty good beer, definitely an IPA with strong hop character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is hoppy but light, with plenty of earthy compliment. Appearance is pale and transparent, but with a slight orange tint reminiscent of an IPA. White, full, lasting head with small bubbles. Taste is grass and hop, but not overpowering. Finish is slightly bitter but not too much. Palate is a little thick, partly from carbonation and party from sweetness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this beer. I felt it was more on the ipa side. Aroma was quite grassy with some piney and floral notes. Appearance was lighter than i expected but poured a nice light copper color with a decently thick head that left some lacing throughout. Taste was medium bodied and a little sticky mouthfeel. with some decent hop bitterness and a touch of malt sweetness but not much. Carbonation added a refreshing quality i liked and it had a nice long finish. Would recommend eating with thai food or spicy sausage. Very good beer overall. would buy again!
