3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by James on the wibbly-wobbly above ground tube during the IoW Jolly... It pours clear orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is bitter-sweet orange, orange, Irn Bru, mango, candied peel and light florals. The taste is crisp, bitter, alcohol, woody, pine, resinous, Irn Bru, citrus and light toffee with a very dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. More malty than I would have preferred, but decent enough anyhow.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear reddish orange amber lasting thick creamy beige head. Certainly piney resiny on the aroma. Lots of hops. malts are there to balance though. Some caramel sweetness. Itís a decent American IPA. Bit too sweet for me. And the hoppiness is more bitterness than fruit or flowery. Burntness. So itís a toffee sweet bitter ipa. OK, but the hops arenít very forward on this.

Bottle picked up at GBBF 2014. Pours a lightly hazy darkish amber with an off white head. Nice overripe fruit, funky veg, dank hop aroma - caramel, orange and lemon too. Medium body, medium carbonation. Pine, lemon, light caramel, orange, woody resin, toast, light caramel... Big woody, grapefruit bitterness. Nice balance. Dry and tasty.

Not shabby. A golden-amber brew with a soft, white head and an onslaught of foam coating the sides of the glass as I swallow. The bitter is a little hard and lasting, resiny but with the citrus and floral balancing the taste. The experience is average, body and finish being very moderate and the texture median; however the carbonation is nice, giving this beer and itís brewery, a bullish and optimistic outlook. (That was fun).

Riktigt fin faktiskt. Passar perfekt en tråkig tisdag. Skulle väl kunna vara lite billigare dock

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy copper/orange from a bomber into a pint glass. Very earthy resiny aroma. Taste was surprisingly sweet with fruit overtones and a harsh lingering bitterness at the end. The resin hops also were pronounced in the taste. Medium body and sticky mouthfeel. I docked the overall score a bit because this was more of a DIPA than an IPA, but very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral hoppieness and malt aromas come from this orabngish hazy brew with a s,all whiteish head. A nice bitterness up front and lasting to the end where a strong malt flavor. The hops flavor is grassy and blends decently with the malt. This brew is medium bodied and has large carb bubbles. Not bad worth a try however its more of a double.

(Bottle). Big and slightly sweet fragrance of tropical fruits, raisins, pine and spices. Rich taste of hops combined with flavors of sweet overripe fruit and raisins. I like the clear and strong hop flavors that well balances the sweet flavors in the beer.
