3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white top. Nose is super pungent. Lots of fruits - mango, pineapple, peach, nectarine, grapefruit. More fruit intenseness in the mouth, with some warming sweet malts. This is incredibly tasty stuff in the American/Double IPA vein. Real quality.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is citrus, slight pine. Taste is lime, mandarin leading to a little cereal and a resin finish. Mouthfeel is suitable. Itís a decent American IPA, to be filed with the other 756,432 which are available.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Very light carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of what Iím pretty certain is the Citra hop - lemon, grapefruit, peach and soap. Flavour is similar to the aroma - this is a real hop bomb. Apricot and lemon with a light caramel backbone. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. This is the first Kirkstall Brewery beer Iíve tasted, and on this evidence it wonít be the last. It reminds me of Highlandís Island Hopping or a turbo-charged version of Fyne Alesí Jarl - itís packed full of fruity hop flavours. If Iím being picky, though, itís a bit light on the mouthfeel. A less filtered version of this would be absolutely immense.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle from either Beermoth or Trafalgar Wines. Try as I might I just canít remember. Bucketloads of piney, mandarin hops which, after a rather bland, hugely disappointing local bitter, just about turned things around this evening. Kirkstall Brewery I have my eye on you.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from ales by mail after reading review from Leigh good stuff
Hazy mud blonde with fluffy white head collapsing to lacing mandarin cheesecake aroma, medium carbonation and body, no sign of any booze, peaches and mandarins and a chalky bitterness with a long dry fruity apricot finish. Perfectly balanced and enjoyable.
