Grassy hop aroma with a slight maltieness come from this clear pale golden brew with white bubbles forming around the glass. I get the classic english bitterness followed by the malt then the flor taste of the hops come in leaving. Bitter note in the aftertaste. This beer is mediumish bodied and has good carb. The label says it all. An English ipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up from Cotteridge wines and drunk at home. Aroma is ok wet hop, tea leaves, biscuit and light caramel malts. Nice mostly clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting sticky white head with big bubble and lace. Flavour is composed of biscuity, pale malts and little caramel, spicy hop, wet hop, hop matter, tea leaves. Palate is medium to lifght bodied with a little malt sweetness and moderate carbonation. Maybe not as fresh as it could be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden amber coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A light hoppy aroma, grassy and herbal with hints of pithy grapefruit and lime. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a hefty hop hit, loads of citrus fruit, grassy and herbal, but this is soon tempered by a slightly sweeter, caramel malt flavour. The final brings back the hoppiness into a lengthy end of the flavour.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transparent golden orange. Minimal head. Pleasant, but mild caramel, malt, honey, and spruce aroma. Light bodied and smooth. Potent hop characteristics are present immediately upon sipping and they remain for quite some time following the finish. Underlying the hop exists the pleasant caramel malt present in the aroma. Tart grapefruit accompanies the hop as well. Enjoyable.
