2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33. Bit disapointed by this one, I’m following Parksy just below "It’s not a terrible beer, just not a great IPA." for me there is some litchee taste that goes not well. Not intresting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle. Dark amber, thin white cap. A lot of floaties and clumpy sediment. Aroma has a light citrus/grapefruit note, some malt. Malty flavour, toffee, sweet. Finishes with slight grapefruit notes. Mild bitterness lingers. Tight, fine carbonation profile, medium body. A lot of sweet malt character, but not enough hops to back it up - this seems a bit underhopped, as such the malt sweetness becomes a bit too cloying. Not bad but needs some tweaking.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an inviting deep hazy orange with a slow-to-rise orange-tinted head. Aroma is very malty with elements of cooked peaches and light resin. Flavours are more malt driven, as expected from the aroma. Sweet biscuity caramel dominates, rounded out by orange peel and peaches-in-syrup. The finish is quite bitter with a mild alcohol burn. This came across as more of an American strong ale due to its heavier malt base, and I found myself wishing it had something to give it a little lift. Although it wasn’t a disaster, the balance just wasn’t quite there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Mondiale. Very malty aroma, some earthy hops. Very dark brown/orange, small white head. Nice taste - very hoppy, but also lots of burnt toast malt. Alcohol not really present. Pretty average to poor for the style to be honest but on its own it is fine.
