Richmond 19th. Medium orange, baked grapefruit aroma, Flavor matches. OK. I would guess that this was a bit past its peak.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark coppery colour with a creamy and large white head, with good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is hoppy, with hints of caramel and citrus. Flavor has notes of fruits where grapes and peaches are present, also orange peel is noticeable. Dry final maintaining the initial bitterness. Creamy texture on palate.

11th July 2011
Hazy darkish amber beer. Good off white head. Softish dry palate. Nice creamy malt. The Nugget hops deliver plenty of tangy bitterness but not a lot of fruit. Trace of aniseed. Finishes dry. Not my favourite hop.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark amber with a decent head. Aroma has some typical IPA-hop smell to it, but with some sour-like odor. Taste is decidedly malty for an IPA and a bit smoky. A sticky feel after the swallow and a bit of a funky aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA from these guys but fun to try the different hops.
