Pleasant poor with frothy white head good retention. Pleasant bitterness not to full on. Some nice hop flavour and aroma throughout. Nice ipa but not a stand out for me.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown and a large foamy head, big hoppy nose with grapefruit, mango and orange peel. Lively carbonation leading to a grapefruit bitter finish. Nothing too complex, but a solid refreshing IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Unusual tea-like amber with a large white head that laces extravagantly. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, lychees, passionfruit, caramelising raw sugar. Lots of grapefruit, tropical fruit sweetness is a little sickly, a little butter, bitterness is piercing but not huge. A little peppery at the end, too. A real tingly blast of hops all right, but the rest just didnít quite do it for me.

Cask at Inn Deep. A clear gold with billowy head. Aroma fruity, was that some marshmallow in there? Taste a zesty zingyness with a spicy tingle. Nice one!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dense orange body, trickle of white dissipating head. Firm mango and passionfruit nose. Initially peppery bitterness with a subtle trickle of carbonation keeping a fresh fruit linger on every sip. Big thick dollops of rich passionfruit, guavay sweetness rolls around in a resinous palate which manages to coax an uncompromised dry finish retaining the initial bitter tingle. Superb.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at the Bat. Orange amber, slight hop haze. Big fluffy white head. Big sticky resinous hops, mango, pineapple, slight grapefruit on the nose. Just a hint of honey too. Big juicy sweetness up front, pineapple and mango and then an absolute powerhouse of resin and bitterness - not harsh or soapy, but seriously assertive. Long bitter linger with a slight warmth. Spot on prickly carbonation. Superb stuff, tastes like a fresh US DIPA but only 6%. Yum.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bernieís Real Ale Off License, Solihull. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white long lasting head and broken lace. The aroma is pure hops leading to a medium bitter hoppy flavour with a little dry spice on the palate and a nice refreshing bitterness in the aftertaste. This is very drinkable IPA that gets things just right!
