Bottle from the excellent Blackrock Cellar. A proper IPA...good sour notes to taste. Strength and depth without being overpowering. Loved it !

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful on draught or bottle conditioned. Hazy orange with tight white head _ maybe some wheat malt there? Lovely pink grapefruit or blood orange and nettle (pine?) on the nose. More grapefruit, hops, and fairly strong malt on the tongue and a dry, grapefruit, hoppy finish. Saved the last quarter bottle and tried it with the yeast. More mellow citrus flavour with digestive biscuit from the malt. Finish softer if anything. A thing of beauty!

500ml bottle from Reills Lisnaskea, Ł2.50:
This one was a very nice American style IPA, particularly as it comes from an Irish brewery and came out a lot better than I was expecting. Thankfully the beer was quite bitter with a lot of grapefruit and citrus flavours, some pine helping add to this as well. Overall this one was quite an enjoyable offering and one that I wouldn’t mind picking up again.

Bottle thanks to big bro. Hazed light golden orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy hop with a little hay. Bit dirty on the nose. Flavour is semi crisp, dirty grassy hop and a little hedgerow berry. Palate is medium light bodied with highish carbonation. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours slightly cloudy with a fairly solid head. Clear hoppy aroma and a crisp bitterness. Not bad, but not exactly a session beer.
