3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good IPA courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Aroma was average. Could pick up some floral hops and grass. Wasn’t very strong. Pour was a nice bubbly dark gold with a one finger white head. Taste was much better than the aroma. Fiercely bitter with notes of passion fruit and ginger. The hops really drown everything else out which is fine by me. Nice carbonation round this beer out. If you don’t like one dimensional hop bombs stay away. For the rest of us, enjoy!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th June 2015
Light haze on this amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and soft, mild fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, light cream. Big skunky hops. Mild hop spice and marmalade but this is mostly about the skunk character of hops. Smooth finish. Skunk bomb but pretty drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good basic IPA. A bit more caramel malt than I am used to to but it works well when balanced by tropical fruits. I’d drink this every day.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Ales By Mail; clear copper pour with a frothy beige head, aroma has freshly mown grass and assertive pine, taste is like a pine cone party, very pine forward with a backbone action consisting mostly of pine, imagine being hit with a Christmas tree and the baubles are mangos, the IUB’s are coming in strong, a pheasant experience.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma and flavor is like when you cut wet two by fours. The wood is ok but that green acidic nature is not good. Killed the beer.
