4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml brown bagged bottle on a bench in QUeens, IX2012 - All-round enjoyable, traditional West Coast IPA that hits all the right notes when you have a thirst for taste: pineapple, citrus, well-rounded malt sweetness backup up by a medium but still highly sessionable drinkability - glad they didn’t stop making this Libery Ale-style basic IPA when they ventured forth into bitter-young-men Stoopid Hop territory!

35.5cl bottle at The White House, Scraptoft (JDW) poured into a tulip glass. Small white head which quickly disappears. Clear golden colour with light carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of passion fruit and pine. Bitter to the taste - grapefruit, oranges and tropical fruit. Medium hopped. Nice fruity IPA.

(Bottle) A very mediocre ipa. Nothing really stands out here but I could drink it, especially on a hot day.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. This is a popular IPA and I don’t quite understand why, or why I keep agreeing to pitchers of it. Clear golden appearance. Not hoppy or particularly bitter. Somewhat soapy taste. An IPA for people who don’t like IPAs?
