3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very drinkable Indian Pale ale. Was very sceptical trying this with many people giving it a bad wrap, but for someone who like a good indian pale this is not a bad beer. Great aroma and body... Nice caramel flavours too which was a pleasant surprise..

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A drinkable beer but not a great beer in itself and as an ipa. Slightly floral on the nose otherwise a bit of a generic pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - Floral, not a lot else.
Appearance - Rusted colour, dark copper.
Taste - Good balance, not as complex as some other IPAs but some nice citrus notes.
Bitter aftertaste and very cleansing on the palate. Would drink this one again, but not eager to drink it again soon.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear golden amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained reasonably well and laced OK. Moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of decent floral hops. Taste a bit of malt but predominantly nice moderate hops bitterness. Medium body. Crisp finish. Not as over-hopped as other IPAs but still quite nice.
