3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Morrisons, pours golden-amber with a thin head and a lovely citrus, resin and herb nose. Firmly yet not aggressively dry-bitter, with overtones of sweet pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Astringent and lingering citrus bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is slightly tropical and boozy. Appearance a bit hazy and wit-like. But what I especially like is that the beer has solid and coarse up-front bitterness - which is what I like in a beer - and none of that poncy fruit salad ponciness. Well done, Dave!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pale straw with a large head on pouring. Strong but not overpowering hop flavour. Very smooth on the tongue and could turn into a session beer albeit with lethal consequences at 5.8%! Buy it now!

Bottle from flavourly.com (use code ANDREWKDR for £12 off first order.) points a clear orange with a frothy white head that lasts. Nice lacing. Aromas of juicy pineapple, mango and apricot. Flavour is zesty citrus with apricot with a mild earthy linger. Lovely IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
September 12, 2014 - at Craft Clerkenwell; handpull. Slightly hazy light gold with a few white suspended floaties - a small frothy white head. Aroma is ... light citrus and light resin, very faint grainy malt - not grabby, but okay (7-). Taste tends to backslide to the "English" IPA - some bitterness, but mostly astringent twiggy malt and crushed leaves - not bad, but a little harsh; not much alcohol. Solid body, definite astringency, modest carbonation, medium-length twiggy finish - not really loving it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with a fluffy head. Aroma is pine, rubbing alcohol and lemongrass. Taste is dulled, a little malt, hardly any bitterness. A weak ipa.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Many thanks to bobinlondon for this bottle, Cheers Bob! Pours a hazy dull golden yellow with a great colored head. The smell is tropical fruit, citrus. The taste is toasted grain, citrus, a bit of pineapple ending dry and bitter. The body is light+ with quite active carbonation that is finely structured.

Bottle, chilled, pours with a thick white head, lacking hop influence on the nose, but nice grapefruit flavour, and a well balanced hop finish . Not bad .

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Flavourly.
Good sized white head disappears quickly, lots of good lacing. Body is golden amber, almost clear with just a faint yeast haze. Nose is orange, peach. Flavour is peach, apricot, caramel, gentle bitter grass on the finish. Lingering aftertaste is a mesh of hop bitterness and malts. Light carbonation, mouthfeel is fairly thick and oily, more bite than I expected. Flavours seem a little unbalanced at times but overall an impressive IPA.
