3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First off, I love the description of this beer because it is so true. I can’t think of another British IPA that holds a candle to a modern, American version of the style. It seems to be a lost art across the pond.
Anyway, it is pretty cloudy and light amber in color. Medium to full bodied with a strong malt backbone for an IPA. Fairly bitter and dry, with spruce and resin hops and a hint of citrus. Impressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Earthy bitterness with an abrupt finish, which is nicely balanced by a maltiness in this. I have no idea if it travelled well or not it’s fairly decent as is.
You can pick the orange citrus and not so much the hope resins. It’s a bit good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly cloudy golden amber body underneath a big, pillowy white head that appears to be leaving good lace behind. A noseful of aroma indicates rich Seville orange peel and herbaceous green pine cones. A taste reveals that bright, tangy orange citrus and piquant bitterness. Underneath is elegant maltiness that provides a sweetish accompaniment to the hoppiness. Contrary to the expectation of my learned offsider, Ned, this has travelled well and I am not in the least bit disappointed. Quite the contrary, I am extremely satisfied.
