3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biggish offwhite head. Clear brassy body. Citric herbal spicy aroma with tropical fruit and chalk notes. Dry chalky citric tropical fruit taste with catnip notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish astringent mouthfeel. Dry peach and pineapple aftertaste with resiny cheese notes. Too sharp for me. (0.15l sample at Haand 2012.)

on tap at slunce ve skle 2012 in cernice. inviting golden with a big head leaving plenty of lacing; loads of grapefruit and pine in the aroma sounds fair warning of the impending whack of bitterness; balanced quite well with some cantuccini sweetness

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 24 Nov 2011) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried apricots, orange peel and grapefruit. Fruity, malty taste with dried apricots, orange peel, grapefruit and a solid malt foundation to support a long, bitter finish. More than medium body, with a slight sweetness. Very nice IPA with a generous hop presence.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Batch #2871. From beersofeurope.co.uk.
Cloudy amber golden colour with small to average size off-white head.
Delicious bitterish hoppy aroma with resin, pine and fruitiness. Very American hoppy. Strong maltiness and suggestion of alcohol in nose too.
Flavour is bitter hoppy with resin. Darkness in flavour of strong maltiness, bitter hops and hints of alcohol. Low carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter hoppy and slightly more gentle than flavour itself. Very good.
