Bottle. Orange and clear.Hoppy but not overpoweringly so. Medium body and a lingering hoppiness with no lacing.Not as good as most American IPA’s that I have tried but still quite pleasant.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. No aroma. No real flavour at all, until right at the back of the tongue, when it’s glassy, sweet, furniture polish, honey and face screwing alcohol. Harsh on finish. I don’t get this at all - what is the point?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
After a long journey from my friend wyzzywyz22 in England. Very nice fruity aroma from cloudy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Nice lacing as it goes down. Flavor is quite different with a sweet caramel start followed by a nice hop bang with an alcohol burn especially as it warms. Finishes very dry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Poured a hazy bronze colour with a fading white head. Sweet, demerera and ripe fruit aroma with some leafy hop presence. Booze is pretty upfront in the flavour which is compensated for by the overall tasty nature; which whilst caramel malt heavy has enough hop character and fruit to make this a winner.

Bright gold, good nicotine-stained head.
Vanilla and hops on the nose.
Sweet and oakey vanilla flavours abound.
Tingly and smooth textured.
Good and rich with a hoppy bite.
