3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated ma 04.01.2016.
tap@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Citrussy nose, some hayish, green tart berries on nose, farmy/saisonny feel. Med bodied, crisp, bitter, slight tart even. Golden malty, dry honey, citrus, some tropical yellows. Feels rather belgy ipa. Apparantly not intended as such, guessing the keg hasnt had an easy trip. The finish is pretty harsh actually.

Bottle from Bottlecraft, Hanley. Pours golden with white head. I expected this to be overly bitter but it’s really well balanced. Well hopped easy drinking strong pale ale. Refreshing.

Hazy gold - amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry and with good fine carbonation. Light malts, touch of creamy sweetness. Nice light citrus peel brings some bitterness. Smooth pine ensues and then some hop spice. Light grapefruit and tropicals. Light semi dry finish. Everything in good balance. A most pleasant IPA.
