2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the GCBF. Quite hazy, nose has no bitterness or tartness whatsover, only sweet tangerine and malt. Flavour is a tad more bitter and the fruit comes through. A very average IPA, offers nothing special; if you take the average balance of bittering and aroma hops, this is slightly tipped toward bittering, but it’s not particularly strong.

An attractive amber colour with nice lacing. Malty, wet wood, with a touch of hops on the aroma. Flavour is nicely balanced..definitely a British style IPA, not crazy bitter, some nice malts in here. Soft creamy finish. Very enjoyable.
