4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from the brewery tap in Henley. Amber with a billowing white head, that falls back slowly leaving an attractive lacing; full-on resinous hop aroma; full-on flavour as well with clean hops and some sweet grapefruit over a smooth malty body; the finish is long dry and bitter, with some throat rasing before a final warming glow. This is an excellent IPA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at 9a. Amber with a white head. Aroma is cheesy and sweaty with a light fruitiness, vegetal. Taste is similar, fruity cheese and sweat. Bitter finish. Not a fan

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Red Squirrel 270312
Dark orange amber, very hazy, thin white head, bit of lacing
Aroma of caramel malts, grassy hops. golden sugars, bit of nutty butterscotch, bitter sweet nose
Taste of caramel malts, some light toffee, grassy hops, bit nutty, sweet golden syrup, bit of butterscotch candy
Palate - quite dry, quite viscous texture, citrus tangy. Finish as main flavour, bitter slightly tangy, some scorched butterscotch.
Overall - It’s quite a good IPA but I’m not sure about that bit of butterscotch in there

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at The Euston Tap. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. A lovely resinous hop aroma with pine, pineapple and grapefruit. Similar flavours with a caramel malt backbone. Mild carbonation and well balanced alcohol. Nicely bitter. Great.

Bottled, 330 ml from Fin, cheers. Hazy orange gold with white head. Straight into an intense hoppy flavour, dry and resin like. The body is medium malty, light with a hint of bready yeast, this carries a grapefruit pith, just ripe lemon flavour, a touch on the palate stripping side. It keeps you involved to the last drop. Really very good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Holyrood 9a. Hazy orange with white head. Massively hoppy flavour. Grapefruit and pine. Followed by hugely bitter finish. Pretty nice and very strong.

Keg at Holyrood 9A. Bright orange amber pour, creamy white head fades to nothing. Big passionfruit and pine nose. Palate is juicy orange hops, more pine, malt sweetness rounds out the big bitterness. Great!

Keg. Pours a hazy orange with a white fluffy head. Citrus and grapefruit aroma with more of the same in the flavour. A good IPA but very bitter, the bitterness was too strong towards the end of my pint.
