4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into lager glass.
Deep golden orange with a humongous frothy head that subsided to a tight layer with tons of lacing start to finish. Aroma was malty, earthy, some yeast, citrus fruit, a slight but of pine resin. The citrus aroma reminds me of lemon lime hard candies. Get the malts immediately on he sip, then a huge blast of citrus more grapefruit than the nose suggested. Earthy underneath, nice hit of bitterness, not overwhelming. Tiny bit of breadiness or yeast, slightly toasty. Flavor hits and passes quickly, and grapefruit and maybe mango linger just a bit. Very clean and refreshing, light on the palate. Finishes dry and makes you want more. The carbonation is light and refreshing. Very drinkable and can see this on a hot summer day.

Draft, legal C
Light yellow for an ipa. NOSE -
Some hop character, nothing really stands out. FLAVOR - light hoppiness. Not overwhelmingly bitter, floral or resinous. NOTES -
pretty typical ipa. Unremarkable, but it seems like it could be a good session drinker. Supports Shigadeyo's theory that 80% of IPAs are the same.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Shakespeare’s, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Thin, dense, lasting, white head. Fresh, minty, black berry hop. It’s akin to a lager with a blackcurrant top. In the nicest possible way. Taste is gentle bitter. Some fruity sweet. Crisp, clean palate. Finishes juicy bitter. Some dry on the close. Quite unusual, really, but very drinkable, fresh, and tasty. Nice one.
