2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle) Amber colour with brief, frothy, white head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of orange, apricots, ginger, cardamom and hints of herbs (sage?). Malty, spicy taste with orange, apricots, candy sugar, ginger, cardamom, mint, herbs, apple juice and a fairly low bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Perfumy and quite weird. Decent, but strange.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Styled as an IPA but really this seems more of a bitter. Ginger hops with short finish. Not outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
10th November 2014
Craft near Tottenham Court Road. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light pale malts. Light floral sweetness. Whisper of esters. Mild and well integrated citrus. Light dry finish. It’s a good beer but nowhere near hoppy enough to be calling itself an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Hazy gold. Tight, white head. Yep, fresh green hop. Some sumac kind of spice. Some astringency. Taste is surprisingly biscuity sweet. More of that astringency aids balance. Fresh, oily palate. Dry, astringent finish.

Is this a joke? Let's put hops on the bottle and call it green, IPA and fresh and maybe we can dupe some wanna-be hop heads that they're drinking the real thing.
The beer had almost no head, has aroma of something lagerish and tastes NOTHING of hops. It reminds me like one of those beers you get a the worst pub in town where people drink beer because it's cheap and it's alcohol. Bad, bad, bad.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ home. Crystal clear amber color. A fizzling thin white head that really quickly dissipates into nothing. Spicy aroma, biscuit maltiness , there’s a preponderance of cloves , with some licorice and unripe bananas.
Sweet biscuit taste with a bit of caramel. Herbal/spicy English hop tones and some basil witch merges into cloves & ginger in the more dry finish. I also sense some anise. The bitterness is really low with a touch of cinnamon and orange. Medium body, high carbonation and a watery feeling in the finish. I sort of enjoyed it for being odd, but style-wise? I could have accepted it as a belgian inspired English IPA if it had bitterness to speak of, but it hasn’t.
