3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber beer with a thin creamy head. Hop and grapefruit aroma. Taste is very grapefruity and there is a smokey and nutty edge.

Cask at ’munro’s’ Glagow. A dark amber ale, slim head, aroma had hops and dark fruit. Taste befitted the American IPA-style with the hops to go with it!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Dark amber with a small head. Good lacing. Malt and fruity richness. Not my idea of an American ale, not as hoppy, but I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is grapefruit, lots of mango sorbet, pineapple and papaya. Taste is tropical fruits lead to malt and a short sharp resin and dry finish. Mouthfeel is slick.
A nice American style ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of dad consumed at home Tuesday 18th March 2014 Pours amber with a good clarity and a filmy white head there was almost certainly a bigger head but I sort of got stuck into it a bit swiftly. Soft in mouth but a huge bittersweet flavour explosion of citrussy hops. I rattled this down me in no time, so quick that my rating is a bit crap. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

Half, cask ale at The Port Street Beer House. Dark amber coloured body. Almost headless. Nice lacing. Malt-fruity smell. Red orange in flavour with additional notes of mid-sweet malts. Lingering half-dry, bitter finish. A good one (Manchester, 07.07.2012).
