3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma has lots of hops, citrus fruits along with a little pine; slight caramel notes. Taste is sweet initially, but this is offset by a gradually intensifying bitterness that is quite nice. Light-medium body, smooth on the palate, and good carbonation. Overall an exceptionally nice double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell of soap and hops. Amber colour, high white head. Very balanced. Hops, spruce. Medium bitter. The basic IPA, not much else.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at FT. Clear gold pour with creamy white head. Super enticing hoppy aroma, delicious smelling blend of fruity and piney hops, wow. If anything the aroma is slightly less "inyourface" than I was expecting. Taste is very interesting, hoppy without being very bitter, malt tastes almost like vanilla, fruity, citrusy hops. Palate is slick and a tad oily, typical. Very good.

Bomber from Julios. Pours out a cloudy light orange wth a big frothy white head. Tons of bitter grapefruit rind aromas and flavors. Slight bit of sweetness. Not much complexity, but still quite drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange amber pour with a large frothy off-white head. Left some lace. Lots of fuzzy orange hoppy flavors. Pith and pips. Some heavy amber fruit. Ripe apricots. Peach pits. Kumquats. Mangos. Lots of bitter hops but balanced a bit with some dark honey flavors. Still a bit harsh but a fuller body than expected. Nice.

Excellent ipa... very well rounded. First beer from this brewery so I’ll have to try some others.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cold bottle. Golden orange pour with huge head. Fairly high carbonation. Had heard good things about this one. Some very floral flavours, bitter herbs like meadowsweet, some caramelly citrus, passion fruit and spice too but not as prominent. Palma violet. It’s nice but below average. This cost me £10 - anything by the Kernel is better and less than a quarter of the price.
