bottle Rehills Newcastle. Pours hazy amber. Fantastic woody fresh pine aroma, medium dry palate with a subtle warmth, becomes smooth & creamier with progress. A hint of spirit creeps in towards the back of the throat late on, with orange flavours becoming more obvious. Really good IPA.

Bottled on 08.03.13 - Pours dark orange with a smooth foamy head. Aroma of grainy malts, grassy hops, hints of citrus and fruits. Taste is malty, smooth and mildly fruity with some hints of citrus and grassy hops. Finish is
quite malty and a bit stuffy with hints of hoppiness. Okay IPA, but needs more hops.

Bottle at home. Slightly hazy amber/orange, big fluffy white head. Quite grassy on the nose, a hint of wet pine, some sweaty, over-ripe grapefruit lurking underneath. Sweaty, oily grassy hop flavours with a soft bready malt backbone. Soft bitter finish. Perfectly drinkable but a little all over the place. OK.
