4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy golden body with a large white head. Light carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of tangerine, chalky malt and leafy green hops. Lovely citrussy flavour that verges on sour in the finish. Pine, flowers, lime and yeast. Nice and dry. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Average carbonation. A absolute cracker of an IPA (and a bargain at just £2.15).

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Le Gothique’s Halloween Beer Festival 2013. Poured a hazy golden colour with just the smallest halo of white head. Aroma was unpleasantly sulphureous, with the slightest hint of urinal cakes... also some soft fruit, which edge off. Flavours didn’t seem to overly compromised with notes of tangerine, candy sugar and malt. Finish was straw, dry grain and pine needles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Lyric, soho. It pours hazy amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, plenty of sticky tropical fruit and a touch of grass. The taste is bitter, earth, grass, resin, wood, orange peel, grapefruit, mango and peach with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Balance is spot on. Really rather nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle on the train from Inverness to Wick, from Tomlinsons, 20/10/13.
Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head.
Nose is bitter orange, light hop scent, toasted malt, soapy waft.
Taste comprises bitter hops, orange pith, grapefruit, more soapy notes.
Medium bodied, light spritz in the carbonation, grassy hop bitterness in the finish.
Ok IPA, not one I’d revisit though, the soapy tones dominate a little too much.
