3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty weak offering for an IPA. Looks nice, but the hip aroma and taste were lacking. Didn't taste bad. Just didn't take like an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright orange amber with a slime-like covering of cream coloured head that is sticking to the side of the glass. There are aromas of pink grapefruit, kumquat, peach fuzz and spruce gum. It’s a lovely aroma, but by no means pungent. You really have to stick your nose in and get a bloody great lungful to get the full palate. It’s sherbety and orangey in the mouth and then along comes sweet then bitter. It was lipsmacking. The flavour was a lot more convincing that the aroma contributing to a good enjoyment overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled sample. A fairly standard IPA - heavy floral notes with a little caramel/bready malt sweetness. Not one I would go back to again and again but will do in a pinch.

Bottle. Deep amber, with no head and slight carbonation. Big, citrus hop aroma. Flavour was dominated by resin, with some orange sweetness and a dryish, grapefruit, finish. A good IPA.

"a decent hop nose, farely lively and balanced, but the flavor doesn’t quite stack up. slightly fruity and a touch floral, but to me a below average ipa."
