4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 Draft...This beer rocks!... Crystal clear, light golden ale with a large, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Wonderful, thick, creamy lacework. The nose is of pineapple, citrus fruit, juniper and apricot. The flavor is rich and malty, but extremely well-bittered for balance. Notes of grapefruit, caramel and evergreen. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, grassy finish. World class brew! What a find, this Market Cross Pub and Brewery!

Orangish pour with white head and lace. Medium caramel malt with some citrus. Flavor much like the aroma. Just lacking in the sweet malt and hop bitter I was hoping for. A tad thin and watery as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub June 2008: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malt with a touch of grapefruity hops. Body starts fairly full and toasty malty sweet with some caramel and toffee notes and a crisp balance of resiny bittering hops. A pretty decent and very drinkable IPA.

Pours a hazy orange color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is a hint tropical, citrusy. Not an aggressive hop profile, grapefruit flavor, needs a touch more malt. Average.
