2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle. Effervescent light amber with a small white head.
Christmas tree resin and marinated lemon and furniture polish in the nose. Pizza crust malt. Wet dog hair off notes. Abrasive, bitter, astringent, sweet, goopy and the fermentation is somewhat dirty (gravel, concrete mix).

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.

Amber color, clear, with medium sized head. Aroma of biscuity malts and piney hops, mild. Off-dry mouthfeel, light, easily drinkable, with lean malt and caramel flavor, strong bitterness, a bit citrusy, but mostly resiny final.
Surgically clean IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. Tea aroma. Very hoppy. Yes it’s just way too much tea flavoured fresh hop flowers. OK, good smoothness in the mouth. Eeek too much tea.

25th August 2014
Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, crisp and semi dry. Mild minerals. Light dry pale malts. Hops are pretty mild, traces of orange and skunk. Light finish. Mild bitter linger. Drinkable but was expecting a lot more hop intensity. Disappointing.

Nice pale ale but not sure how you can differentiate this from an IPA other than just saying its a pale ale.
