2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Bronze with a scummy white foam. Annoying peach iced tea aroma; floral, peachy, a bit sickly. That same flavour without the hops to lay claim to IPA status. Sponge cake infused with peach air freshener; honey, orange Smartie notes. Would’ve loved this 5 years ago but I’m a fussy bugger these days and too into the hops. Pleasant enough but too watery, peachy and malt-sweet for me or the missus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gentle fruit (+ apricot + pineapple + grapefruit). Vegetal/musky whiff, bit like Nelson Sauvin but much less tropical. Tastes grassy, and of waxy lemon, with a bit of caramel malt. Bit too restrained for my liking, as per previous time I tried it, but covers a lot of bases (albeit faintly).

Cask at the rake. Quite pleasant but pretty boring. Not hoppy enough but a strange taste

Clear amber pint with thin head. Light aroma of lemon and nuts. Light taste of grass, lemon, caramel. Some tartness before a medium, long bitter finish kicks in. A little watery but reasonably good overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Saintsbury’s, consumed at home. Light gold, pretty much clear. Big white head but ir settles fairly quickly. Gentle orange and apricot aroma. Tastes bitter with a soft citrus sweetness, turning to a more emphatic bitter to the long luicy hoppy finish. Strong tropical fruit on the aftertaste. Carbonation is aggressive. It’s a good beer if fairly muted for an IPA. Easy drinking, it hangs together very nicely, hence the fairly high rate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from The Bottle Bank. Clear golden colour with a one finger white head and good retention, lacing. Aroma of American hops, grapefruit, malt, citrus, pine. Lovely hoppy flavour with a good amount of malt too, well balanced, sweet and bitter, citrus, lemon. Moderate carbonation, nice mouthfeel, little bit sweeter than other IPAs but I like it. A decent IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Slightly hazy golden beer. Subtle biscuit / cereal notes with balanced floral and hoppy bitterness. Interesting with some complexity. A tasty IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, pale golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney and minimally citrusy, hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, lemon biscuit, a minimally sulphuric touch. Taste is biscuity malty, minimally grainy, cautious citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon, a strawy touch. So so.
