3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Cleaned and engineered hoppy aroma has piney notes, some orange, mandarine, pineapple. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, bitter and piney hoppy, notes of pineapple, mandarine and orange; very soft palate. IPA-like in sterile Californian mode, technical sophistication eradicated any vitiation/contamination by natural processes left to to their own resources. The immaculacy of digital sounds is impressive and intriguing, but I still prefer the rude and pristine, analogue sound of vinyl.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear orange/gold with a decent white head. Piney hop aroma. Taste is sweet pale malt subdued by a hoppy pine and grapefruit presence. Quite good, but not a pale ale in style. Should be called an IPA by virtue of hoppiness and ABV.
