3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Aroma of resin and citrus (though not exactly grapefruit). Amber color with a decent white head. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is something caramel with a lot of floral and noble hop. The hop has the lead, and the malt slips away. The finish is decently dry, and the hop continues to build. It’s actually rather soft and smooth for such a hoppy drink.

22 oz. bottle, pours dark copper with a small white head. Grassy hops, pine and citrus on the nose, more reminiscent of an IPA. Flavour of smooth, resiny, piney hops, grass and citrus. Certainly one of the best pale ales I’ve tried yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
