3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, 5.7% BB July 2016. Clear dark amber orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is damp face cloth, barley malt syrup, soggy biscuit. Body is medium, rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is spicy hop-forward, a little metallic, thin sugary malts, floral bitterness. Certainly very drinkable and pretty enjoyable, although itís a bit one-dimensional.

Supremely good bottled ale from one of the originals! Although paler than most of itís kind (ironic for an IPA). It has a very fruity & fresh aroma and a clean, mild vanilla and cloves after taste. It has malt and a laid back but refreshing bitterness that makes it a fantastic summer pint. Sampled during a BBQ with some decent pulled pork and chilli burgers. Really satisfactory palate cleansing pint. Mainly caramel and biscuit notes on the taste buds that are never "overly sweet". Really good beer; not heavily carbonated.

Almost clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Malts, light caramel and grassy hops in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is light with some sweet notes and dry hoppy finish. Overall, a disappointment far from a good IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, almost clear, very small white head. Medium body and carb. Nose is led mostly by English hops, with their earthy hedgerow notes, and there is a hint of citrus as well. Hops play second fiddle to caramel malt. Very drinkable.
