Bottle from Johns. No date (AFAICT), hope it’s this year’s. Copper with ring. Grassy leafy hop aroma with a little vegetal malt. Mild toasted caramel malt with minimal fruitness. Medium assertive citrus rind and woody hops finish. Fairly dry. Mild astringency. Medium body. Lively carbo. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep hazy amber with a medium off white creamy head. Aroma of orange zest,caramel malt, nuts and a nice sweet hop profile. Flavor of tropical fruits, citrus zest, nice but not harsh hop bitterness. Nice and dry with some caramel and nutty notes to balance. Was expecting a caramel bomb but it wasn’t! This bottle is at least 3 but probably more months old. Need to try a freshy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice ipa. Pours a burnt orange with some nice lacing. Aromas of dank basement, piss, dirty socks, and sweet honey and citrus. Nice hoppy flavours. More pine driven Than anything else. A touch of water on the finish keeps this from having a higher rating.
