3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours hazy orangey with a thin layer of lace. The nose has oranges, apricots and a hint of earthiness. The taste has marmalade, parma violet sweets and then the marmalade returns on the finish. The palate has a medium to large body and big tangy texture and a refreshing finish, despite the big alcohol. Overall nice beer - like the way the hops have come out jammy because of the alcohol levels.

Batch 434: Hay, pencil shavings, grapefruit aroma. Murky ochre, thick billowy head, fairly good retention. Intense punch of grapefruit, caramel, horehound, oak. Triple sec finish. Full body, hot, easy carbonation. A bit stale and oxidized, no date found on the bottle, but I would guess it isn’t very fresh. Very boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taste from a bottle (best before 6/2012) @ a friend’s place. Pours hazy golden with a high but fast head. Aroma is fruity and slightly sour malts with some alcohol and hops. Flavor is sweet malts, fruits, alcohol, hops and a sour punch that doesn’t belong. It’s gone bad, sadly. Still decent though.

Foam is moderate and sustained. The aroma contains light fruit, caramel and hops. The taste is extremely good. First lightly caramel, then ongoing good hops with a fine balance bitter not astringency with the points that it is an IPA. Towards the end lightly alcoholic forward and leaves a warming sensation in the mouth. Very successful IPA.

In overall, nice

In bottiglia. Colore arancio, velato, schiuma fine e abb persistente. aroma di cereale, crosta di pane, caramello seguito da resinoso, terroso ed erbaceo. al palato corpo intenso anche se non penalizza la scorrevolezza. Malta in evidenza ancora con crosta di pane e caramello che bilanciano a fatica una dosa di luppolo consistente anche se non molto elegante. aromi erbacei e resinosi abbondanti.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dark brown, greasy tan film of a head. Smells like someone has set fire to those sushi packets you get in Tesco. Tart, big soy sauce and a light balsamic tang. Soft lightly cloying. Builds a neat heat towards the finish, actually settles a little when your palate gives up figuring out what’s going on. A fly ended up in the glass before I could finish.
