3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Bottle from Bottledog. Colour is clear rusty orange with an enormous off white to beige foam head. Nose is new nylon sneakers, earthy, rain-on-tarmac, caramel malt, pine, grapefruit. Taste is bording on that bug spray/new nylon sneakers weird flavour that IPAs sometimes get. Also a bit caramel malty, which is not my favourite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy dark orange with eggshell lacing. Smells like a malt bomb with aged Nelson hops. Tastes like it smells, but not as cloying. Average on the palate. A underwhelming IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mml bottle tasted on 16/05/2014. Nice hazy orange colour with white head. The taste is sweet for an I.P.A. and very balanced with predominance of hops. Carbonation is Ok. Light and easy to drink I.P.A. with low alchol average. Next one please!

Very sweet IPA beer... White head. As always, hoppy aftertaste Aroma: a lot of fruits - peach, mango, raisins, very sweet smell, but the taste is not ballanced with aroma - didn’t impressed me. Nice beer.

Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a clear orangish golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is mango, pine, grapefruit and peach... Hops all over the place. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is bitter with a lot of fruity sweet notes. Overall, a great IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle @ Kitty’s. Deep amber, thick white head. Pine, herbs, wood and some dark fruits in aroma. Flavor has pine, wood, grapefruit, strawberries. Herbal, very bitter and dry finish. Refreshing. Medium bodied. Enjoyable for sure, but get quite heavy as it warms up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft into taster - nose is akin to cat urine. Sip adds a thought experiment. In other words, I like the single direction of this hop. A little flat. A little sweet for an IPA. Decent.
