3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from the brewery. Pours lightly hazy gold with a moderate, foamy white head. The aroma holds lots of juicy, pithy citrus, some pale malts. Medium sweet flavor, lots of sweet, borderline syrupy citrus fruits, some pine needles, bready pale malts, grapefruit, mild dry tangerine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with lots of juicy, ripening citrus fruits, orange, tangerine, some mango, some sticky pine, hints of minerals and yeast. Very drinkable IPA with great citrus character, but it could be better if a little drier.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Little disappointing after all the lyrical waxing. Started too cold but warmed up nicely, just didn’t quite have the power of full hop flavour I was expecting.

Bottle 28 March 2013. I dunno if this is just because it was the first beer of a holiday weekend but I enjoyed this awful lot. Lovely resinous nose and satisfyingly dry hop blast. This young brewery gets better with each batch.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Wow, this is hitting the spot in every way. A real beauty. I feel privileged to be rating this first. A lovely bitter smack around the face. I’m also winning 9-8 in a game that both of us are playing.
