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.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours golden with a light layer of off-white froth. Some really nice tropical fruit flavour to this with grapefruit and pineapple, but a little light in body. Nice, crisp and refreshing with a moderately bitter finish. A solid beer.

Looks good - clear light copper brown. Aroma of hops. Tastes lovely. Citrusy hops and a smooth bitterness. A lovely moden IPA - a great intro to the style. Yum yum.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Some herbs combined with fine hops, decent dryness towards the end and some herbal moments. Classy and fine with balanced aromas and taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask in the Champion W2. Golden colour, thin white foam. A pleasantly hoppy ale. Slight hint of syrupy oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish, hops are slightly floral, pine, fruit. Reasonably drinkable, being ’only’ 5% makes it just about ok for the pub, but packs in a decent amount of flavour.
