500ml bottle from Appleyards, Shrewsbury. Hope this is the right one! Drunk from the bottle. Nice fresh hoppy aroma. Taste is vibrant citrus, quite a lot of hops with some prickly grapefruit keeping things interesting. Very nice IPA.

In bottle at the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery.
This was slightly overshadowed by the richer beers I drank in its company but it still delivered gentle citrus against malt in a balanced package. Imminently drinkable and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Urban Tap House, Cardiff. Gorgeous aroma of white grape, pineapple and pine resin. Juicy sweet taste but not quite the hop bomb promised by the aroma. Weak mouthfeel. I enjoyed it immensely even though it doesn’t quite deliver in the taste.
