Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head, some of which hangs around.
Nose - mandarins and apricots. Toffee malt.
Taste - nicely melded orange and toffee. Like a liqueur in fact.
Palate - medium bodied, there’s a creamy yet sharp texture and a long dry but not astringent finish.
Overall - lovely American style IPA.

Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Resinous, pine aroma, but its the big caramel flavour that hits me straight away. It’s pretty perfect and mixes with the lovely dry grapefruit taste so well. Long, dry, citrus finish, with some woody notes and medivinal characteristics. Lovely deep reddy-amber colour. One of my beers of the year

Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. High volume but it’s not overly evident with plenty of fruits abundant in both aroma and taste.

Cask at The Old Black Bull. Beer of the night by some margin. Lots of juicy grapefruit and pine on the nose. Lots of bitterness in the taste, but with a solid caramel/toffee backdrop. Very enjoyable.

Light amber w bubbly head. Smells like a lot of American hops. Tastes like a lot if US hops, and chewy sticky crystal malt foolishness. Not much character - too sticky and the alcohol is quite assertive in the finish. 3 6 6 3 11
