3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Bold golden pour with striking clarity, lots of bubbles and topped with a thick foamy white head. Dank floral and citrus hop aroma with lighter tropical fruit notes. Seems like pineapple in there… very fruity and sweet. Hoppy, lightly sweet with a pleasant bitterness. Nice use of the Maris Otter. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Nice session IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a nice white head. Aroma is citrusy, dank and resinous, tropical fruits. The taste is citrus, lemon, pineapple, orange, pine, vegetal, dank and resinous. Body is a bit thin, carbonation is fine. If only the taste lived up to the aroma this would have been a winner, still good.

Bottle, Light and refreshing with grapefruit in the nose and in the taste. Solid malt profile gives this one a more substantial palate than many other session IPAs. Well done for sure and it goes down easy. I’ll buy again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear bright golden with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of bright tangerine, orange and other citrusy goodness hops, a bit of sweetness and mildly toasty bready malt. Really nice. It has a fairly light somewhat rough body with mild sharp carbonation. The taste starts with a lot of dryness, citrus zest, pine, mild woodiness and crackery malt. The finish continues and is super dry. Pretty nice session IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a lighter orange with a white head. Aroma was decent bit of citra and light grain. Juicy Ness drops off a little in the flavor, a little herbal, but still fairly clean and drinkable.

13th September 2015
Bright clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, fine carbonation. Minerals. Light malts. Mild floralness. Mild orange peel, trace of fresh juice. Lightly bitter finish. Not the Citra delivery system I was hoping for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, best before February 2016, drunk 9/6/15.
Large white head is frothy and diminishes steadily to cover, topping a clear golden body with plentiful carbonation.
Citra in the nose shows the usual citrus melange with a bit of floral notes, some perfume and light grassiness. Malts are well-attenuated adding honey and light vanilla. The vienna malt dosent really come through, perhaps adding just a hint of caramel. No alcohol and clean, with no stale hop issues.
Quite hoppy in the flavor but as with the top notch session IPAs, the bitterness is held mostly in check. Some acidity does build up (a touch of pine and strong grapefruit) on the end. Malts are sparse, dry but not overly grainy or overattenuated. Plentiful carbonation is a bit aggressive/peppery but the flavors are on point, leaving orange blossom honey, lemon zest and light pine on the finish, lingering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy recollection of this. Bond sesh/sex night. Standard stuff. Cool smell, wheat hop, Citra all the way, floral brought on strong by the citrus. Getting a lot of weed too. It tastes watered down, more metallic, not as complex. Malty hop overtone.
