2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
24th October 2014
Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light dry pale malts, touch of cream. Floral bitterness leads to a dry finish. It’s okay but there is no hop fruits here at all and there is a very long list of IPAs I would drink ahead of this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, 500 ml, into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5%
Pours a deep orange coloured beer, crystal clear, with good activity in it. Head a bit taller than one finger, with average retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is moderate hoppy, quite fruity, malts, grass, maybe a bit of wheat.
Nice taste, begins with an intense bitterness, hops, again quite fruity but something is missing. The bitterness persists though, with long duration.
Very thin body, low carbonation, watery all in all and that helps the drinkability but it’s way low.
Overall okay, only the body sort of disappoints.
