4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden beer with a grassy citrus aroma. Flavour is grassy and floral citrus with a bitter-sour follow-up. Light but rich. A touch cooler and it’d be my perfect sunny afternoon beer.

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 can’t 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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours lovely amber, little head retention. Nose is citrus and grapefruit, slightly pine. Bold bitterness which lingers. Citrus on the palate, alcohol warmth right at the end. Would be fantastic on a hot day.

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.

Bottle - copper coloured with moderate sized white head. Citrus and peach aroma, some sweet malts. Similar in the taste, nicely hoppy, nice oily mouthfeel, long hoppy bitter finish. Well put together, nice.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Pours a somewhat boring orangey-gold with no head, kinda meh. But fairly prominent hops, grassiness, bitterness. Maybe a bit of citrus in there too. Alcohol adds warmth and balance rather than harshness. Very good IPA, quite dependable, if not a standout.
