2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Classic English style IPA with a rich full malt body and light hops. This is the kind of beer you hand over to a conservative beer drinker who is still learning the skills of bolder IPA’s. A little too sweet for my taste buds, but still a quality brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium amber body with a light tan head that leaves a good amount of foam on my glass. Strong and far too sweet aroma with distinct notes of butter, but there are also nice notes of caramel, sweet fruits and overripe strawberries. Moderate aroma of sweet fruits, caramel, cereal, red berries in the back and buttery hints. Moderate to light sweet with a moderate plus bitter finish of decent length. Medium to light body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Almost decent, but too much butter, to little bitterness and to much sweetness.

Too creamy smell and taste. It's an IPA but not my stile. Kind of bitterness in the aftertaste but again definitely not my type.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at the Bishops Arms, Park Avenue, Goteborg 21/03/14.
Clear golden amber with a good sized white head.
Nose carries a trace of caramel, fiant hops, malt tones, bitter citric peel.
Taste comprises earthy hops notes, bitter orange, grass, caramel malt, light bread notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok, drinkable enough but a little boring and lacking hops, lower end of the IPA spectrum.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Bishops Arms, Park Avenue, Gothenburg. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak hop light malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth hop bitter light pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A nice hoppy and very drinkable session IPA.

(backlog) Draft. Orange pour with white head. Light spice and mild bitterness and some balancing malt aromas. Earth and spice hop flavors, doesn’t really stick out.

Ljusbrun med stort vit skum! Doftar engelsk humle och en del rostad malt! Smaken är detsamma men väldigt lättdrucken och helt ok!

Had this a number of times, cask, tap and bottled. It’s a solid and good english-style IPA i think it’s underrated.
