3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden pour with a slight but pronounced head which stayed with the beer to the end. Grapefruit and pineapple were prominent with a malty undertone, good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely apricot body, decent soft foam head. Splendid nose of triple-C hops. The bouquet starts with a deep, penetrating pinyness, and the a floral bouquet blushes to the forefront. Some candy, overripe fruit, and shoe notes are sweat off as well. Medium-bodied, with moderate citrus notes and a balanced bitterness, that trends towards the acerbic. Metallic pineapple-grapefruit finish,

Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours cloudy dark golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit and spicy hops. Taste is initilally sweet malty, marmelade, but that fades away and leaves room for the fine bittering hops,fine balanced lemon and grapefruit, very juicy, crisp and fresh tasting IPA, very good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at Sourced Market, St Pancras and shared with Stefan. Opaque, muddy brown body. Off-white head blanketing the glass. Rich aroma of grapefruits added by grainy malts. Fresh taste of tropical fruits and grapefruits supported by dark spices to a bitter ending. Easy to drink. Likable, but not pretty to look at (hotel room kitchen in Leeds, 29.06.2013).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle, quite dark toffee colour, small head, a bit of yeast in the bottle. There is some malt in the background coming through, but this is mainly showcasing the hop flavours of orange, passion fruit and grapefruit juice. Carbonation is low to average. Nice IPA

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit tired tonight so a brief rating on this one. Slightly chewy nose with citrus and pine but also a bit of dishwater. Flavour follows - dry and hoppy but a bit cloying in the finish. Had better from Partizan, but by no means a drain pour.

Bottle at The Euston Tap, where piss is leaking from the ceiling. Gold pour with a small head. The nose is melon, grassy hops, herb, berry and grape. Taste is quite fresh. Loads of countryside grass. Lemon squash, some white grapes. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, solid.
