3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Almost clear reddish amber color with a medium white head. Lovely citric hops aroma with some tropical fruits and floral notes. Flavor has some malt and mellow sweetness, but is mostly about juicy citric hops. Nice lingering bitter finish. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. A good and very quaffable IPA.

Taste: pretty bitter, bit chemical, very harsh piny bitterness, almost medicinal, soft fruity notes, some caramel, little sweet. Aftertaste: very bitter, medicinal, resinous, very dry, bit chemical.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, cheers to Leighton for the pour! The appearance is deep amber with a medium white head. The aroma’s grass, nose-tingling green pepper menace. Hints of barnyard skunkiness. The taste is big green bell pepper. Stinging light tartness. A bit of orchard fruit and grass, but mostly green pepper. A definite infection, I’d imagine. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a shame. Hopefully I’ll get to try a sample in decent condition in the future!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out of the bottle ( many thanks to tomer!) in a light hazy amber colour with steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of fresh hops, spices, spruce, barley, bread and cake. Finishes off with citrus and spices. Well-balanced, smooth and easy to drink. Enjoyed it a lot.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic one with loads of hops and some citrus fruits in the back. Unpleasing bitter finish reminding me of medicine, Not sure about that one.
