3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Caramel and biscuit malt notes dominate the aroma, with some mild floral and fruity hops in the mix. Kiwifruit, melon and floral hops up front lead into a blend of biscuit and nutty malt notes in the mid-palate. Nutty malt and floral hops make up the finish. This is quite a nice beer, with some very pleasant hops flavours. To my mind, however, the hops need to assert themselves more to really make this feel like an IPA. Enjoyable as it is, it feels to me more like a hoppy bitter than an IPA.

500 ml bottle from the Party Source at home. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, caramel, earthy and floral hops, mild bitterness, hops seem faded and not sure of the age of the bottle,would be better fresh but I probably wouldn’t buy this again to find out.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Murky amber beer, frothy white head. Hoppy aromas of apricot jam, raspberry, mango, kiwi and a hint of tamarind sauce. Extremely fizzy carbonation makes it diffucult to taste. Dryish, slightly biscuity and caramelly malts, quite strong and sweetly fruity/slightly herbal hop flavor, mellow hop bite in the finish. Carbs erupt in your mouth forming a mouthfull of foam. Way over carbonated! Medium body. Aroma is wonderfull, but carbs knock out most ois the rest. And it is very good, nevertheless.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From old notes. 500ml bottle from Costco.
Pours a bronze-amber with a tiny filmy head. Quite clear. Big malty aroma, caramel toffee, but mixed well with bright floral hops. The taste and feel is excellent, very solid malt base, a little sweetness, mild hop bitterness, a little fruity pith and lightly spiced. Ends quite bitter and dry. Really enjoyable.
