3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle given to me graciously from my step brother, I do believe he purchased it at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Pours a cloudy copper like colour, with a nice thick white head that recedes to a blanket that covers the top and clings to the walls of the glass. There is a couple spots of lace here and there. Aroma is not as strong as I had anticipated in comparison to the others I’ve had, which leads me to believe that the "East Kent Golding" is not that aromatic. Smells a little of pine, a little wood, and a tinge of citrus. Taste is quite bitter, dry and tart, maybe a little sour even?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at Olympen. Hazy orange colour with a big creamy head. Aroma is lafen with notes of malts, grass and some hops and caramel. Flavour is bordering on sweet with notes of malts, grass, caramel, nuts. Some faint hint of hops. This beer shows me that East Kent Golding alone is not a good hop for IPA-style beers. Too bland and lacking the bitterness expected of and IPA. Short aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Sanctuary. Wonderful hop aroma. Sweet flavor with lots of grassy hop flavor--kind of raw, much less refined than the other single hop mikkellers. Good, not great.

Like Tbone says, indeed the name is wrong here. It should indeed be "East Kent Golding Single Hop IPA". Anyway, color is a hazy dark orange, kind of amber. Smell and taste of this hop seem to bring a little more bitterness instead of fruits, grapefruits and a little orange peel. In short: it smells and tastes a little less fruity than other IPA’s. Certainly not bad, but certainly not the best from this series.
