3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at the pre Bamberg tune up in the Sham, from Wegmans Downington, 23/01/14.
Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white head that dissipates to a pond.
Nose is bitter orange, straw, toasted malts, lemon rind, grass.
Taste comprises orange pith, light hoppage, toasted malt, faint red grapefruit.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grass laden bitterness in the closure.
So so entry level IPA.

Pre Bamberg bash tasting at Colin’s house with Mr Bois and James. Thanks Colin. Light haze on this deep gold beer. Decent pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and minerally crisp. Caramel malt with a slight oxidised flavour. Light piney hops. Little hop spice. Semi.dry finish with a bitter linger.

Poured an orange color with aromas of biscuit malt, light pine and citrus. Flat or are the light dough with some pineapple Nd pine. Flavors were watered down a little nit. Bonus points for being in a can.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light hop aroma, pours a clear amber with a full white head. This is a maltier take on the IPA style then I generally prefer, there’s some hop presence there, but not a lot of bite. It’s not a bad beer, but I would class it more of a Pale Ale then an IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange body, large off-white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, pine, too much biscuity malt. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, too sweet for my liking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can to glass. Pours a medium amber/gold with a lacy white head. Aromas of light pine, some light cramel, and a bit of floral hop notes. The flavor is somewhat subdued and mild. Light malts and some hop notes come through.....eh decent but better stuff out there.

Not too bad. Hop favors aren’t that exciting. Not any huge negatives, standard ipa.
