7 Lovely hoppy aroma - peach and lychee, and other sweet fleshy fruits.
3 Mid orange, tiny brief head.
6+ Nice hoppy body, as you’d expect from the aroma, but it’s not a very complex beer. It’s only about the hops and is a bit one-dimensional.
4 Smooth and fruity. Sweetish. Big and bold, but nice.
13 Pretty tasty IPA. Fruity and fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled 26/05/13. A yellowy gold coloured beer with a white ring of head and a little lace. A lovely sharp zesty beer. A great hop profile and lovely pale malts. Pretty bitter but it’s the zestiness that domiantes and is really tasty.

Not in good shape. Honey and cantaloupe and stale paper-y oxidized pale malt. Sour fruit rind, burnt pineapple, old peanuts, a kind of green mildew flavor and aroma. Medium body, lightly sweet with dull hop character and little carbonation to give life to what is there. From bottle.
