2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home 24th march 2013. On open this smells too sweet, pours clear. Taste is too sweet, not enough carbonation and no bitter balance, not a good IPA, there is a metallic taste also. I managed to drink it easily though, does not seem 7 %

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Dry, dusty hop aroma. Caramel, toffee and orange.
Appearance: Deep amber, clear body. No head, no carbonation, no lacing. This is one ugly beer...
Taste: A bit on the harsh side. No hop bitterness, in fact itís quite sweet for a DIPA - caramel and toffee. Quite boozy.
Palate: Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: This bottle showcased the Nugget hop. Unfortunately, itís easily the worst beer Iíve had from the usually excellent Harbour - flat, dull and overly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. I definitely enjoyed this one. Not an IPA in the classic meaning, lacking lots of the bitterness. Not a DIPA either, much less sweet/boozy. This quite light and easy drin king yet packed with tropical fruits sweet flavours. Balanced and tasty, I liked this one. Only thing, it could use some more carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Connollyís Wines, Solihull. Poured a slightly cloudy bronze with a thin white head and low carbonation. The aroma is rich, strong and extremely hoppy. The flavour is strongly bitter, hoppy, spicy, dry and with pepper notes on the palate. It was a fine beer to taste, but the extremely hoppy taste might quickly become a little too much.
