3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at home on 1st April 2016. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass. Highly carbonated, could not get all the bottle into the glass, clean and clear golden body, large white head that hung around. Hop centric with both a floral and mild citrus aroma, taste also hop first with tropical fruitiness and a mild bitterness. No bad at all, like it.

The aroma was typical of an IPA, with tropical fruits predominant. The taste was very complex, with hints of the citrus fruits overpowering any floral or honey input.
