Hardly an IPA. No crisp hops, no bitterness no freshness. Smooth indeed, almost velvety. As served at room temp and no carb it's not a summer beer..

Canned. Orange with a creamy, dense and compact off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is light caramel, slightly fruity and brown sugar. Bittery and floral flavor, English hops with hints of caramel. Bittery final with good duration, dry sensation.

Tap at the Quin’s Head, Twickenham Stoop stadium, 09/03/13.
Pours a (chill) hazed golden amber with a big creamy light beige head that retains well.
Nose is GK yeasts, light caramel, biscuit, cereals.
Taste follows - not a lot doing, touch citrus and slight metallic tones.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, cold !!!
Bland keg offering from an already bland brewer - pretty much as I expected!

A-- Poured a clear, dark amber color. Very short lived off white head that quickly went to film. Decent head retention as head goes to one finger and slowly dies off. Little bit of carbonation showing in pour and just a few wisps of film.
S-- Stewed asparagus, stewed cabbage and a bit of cat pee. Using a sav blanc reference. A bit herbal skunky and soapy but does have some freshness to this. Nose softens up a bunch with air and gets more palatable.
T-- Lots of hop presence in the taste. Mostly spicy vegetable hop taste but not that bad. Not a fruit or pine bitterness and it is very short lived.
M-- Thin and sweet. Very much like a simple syrup taste. Hops drop off and get a lot of residual sweetness. Keep thinking thin iced tea but quite clean. Light feel and medium carbonation.
O-- Not a lot to this and not all that bad. As a palate changer it works. Not something I would want a lot of but it works in some odd way.

440ml Can (with nitro widget). Aroma is initially of the nitrogen and then a very very faint burnt maltiness in the glass. Appearance (2 of the 4 pack widgets malfunctioned but of the 2 that worked) a creaamy head over a light brown liquid. Taste was hard to find anything for most of the drink but was getting a hint of a malty aftertaste towards then end. I was warned about this one prior to tasting it - They were not wrong!
