3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Aroma is citrus, floral and vaguely boozy. Flavor is bigger includes citrus, pine, resin, tea and pear. Malt back is barely there but fits just fine. All in all I prefer this to the original single and find it worthy of its roots.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the Earl of Essex, London. It pours a rich golden color with a large beige head. Aroma is hoppy, with notes of mango, biscuit, caramel, piney and grapefruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and balanced with grapefruity and piney hops. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy with good carbonation. Overall, really tasty

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Third time I’ve it. Bitter herb and malt overpower fruity notes. Viscous bout not overly so. Finishes bitter in the back of the throat. Won’t seek it out again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark clear orange color with a thick white head. Nice hoppy aroma citrus and pine and neither are overly strong. Strong piney flavor with a good dose of bitterness. A good IPA that makes me want to sample more of their beers in the future.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, clove and citrus. Taste is a light sweet maltiness with a fairly pronounced bitterness that has clove and tarty aftertaste that lingers somewhat long. Appearance is a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Solid enough IPA. The beer has a big flavor but the aroma wasn’t overwhelming or anything. I would drink it anytime its around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nowhere near as good as the first, older version. This new recipe is a bit off-balanced for my liking. I feel it’s way too malty. There’s certainly enough hops in the beer, but the sweet, bready and alcohol-fueled malts overpower them. It might be nit-picking, but I think the color is a bit off too. I think it’s a little to dark for the style. Thankfully I only got the sampler with eight of these bottles in the case.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, with hints of caramel and resin. Taste/Palate: crisp; starts sweet, and finishes with a long bitterness. Another perfect beer with a fantastic malt/hop balance! These guys sure know how to brew...now if we could only make them stop with this "session" shit that they are doing...

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a redish amber body with a thin head. Odd aroma, a bit like a belgian ale. Unbalanded but rather interesting taste.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bière fortement houblonné. Malheureusement, elle n’offre rien d’autre que ce goût de houblon et de façon moins puissante que d’autres bières de ce genre.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber colour. Underwhelming aroma for a five hops beer including citra hop. On the honey side of the glass. Overwhelming Sticky bitterness.
