4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at CBC - Clerkenwell, London during Bruce’s 30th Birthday Party. Many thanks to...me. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, white cream head. Nice hoppy nose with citrus, orange, melon. Medium sweet flavor with pleasantly dry citrus, tangerine, melon, grapefruit and pine needles. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light dryness to finish with hints of resinous pine needles, some toasty hay, lemon rind. Good stuff. Nice balance, cutting dryness. Certainly one of the better non-Kernel IPAs I’ve had in a while.

Tried on tap at the Euston Tap. Sweet peachy aroma, medium/full bodied mouthfeel, gorgeous sweet fruity taste. Tropical fruits, peaches, pineapple, a little syrup, and a nice balanced bitter hop bite. Absolutely beautiful IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a lighlty unclear orange-golden beer topped by a decent off-white head. Quite hoppy aroma, with pine cones and citrus peel, some notes of grass and tropical fruits, and a little bit of malts. It’s quite sweet on the palate, not cloying though, and with sufficient bitterness to deal with it. Full body, with pleasant carbonation. Bitter and fruity finish. Overall, a nice beer, but it could use some more bitterness, and I wouldn’t argue against even more aroma hops. 130216
