3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color. Aroma: Bread, grass, floral, citrus and earthy. Taste: Classically bitter! Grapefruit, citrus, more bready flavours, almost some salty flavours as well. Nice fizzy mouthfeel with a long bitter finish. It’s been a while since my last british IPA and this one is pretty good. Refreshing, it’s way more bitter than I would have expected. First I’ve tried from the brewery and it’s promising.

Bottle. Dark golden beer with a good strong white head. The aroma lightly hopped, and the flavour is hopped, dry with some fruitiness. Overall a nice hopped beer, not too weak on flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at JF’s, thanks to my wingman DW for gifting this one, 09/06/13.
Lightly hazed orange amber with a decent off white head.
Nose is summer fruits, bitter orange, caramel, sugars, malt, light piss.
Taste comprises earthy hops, grass, orange pith, malts, light tropical notes.
Medium bodied with a little oomph, fine carbonation, bitterness in the finish.
Ok stuff - not an IPA in the US sense that RB would expect, more a strong golden blonde if such a style existed.
