4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds.
Amazing hit of Banana and Peach on the nose.
Pours an Amber-Orange with a fine, white head.
Light carbonation throughout with strong head retention.
A great refreshing ale with a lot of thought put into it.
Floral notes at every turn.
A great collab which is refreshing with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Great aromas throughout and worth buying if you get the chance!

Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Frederic for the cellar run. Cheers mate! almost clear gold beer, little white head. Light palate, smooth and slightly dry. Really good hops - juicy orange with good floral notes. Joining the taste party are tropical fruits, lime being most noticable. Adding more complexity is lesser lemon and grape. All flavours very well integrated in this super tasty and drinkable beer!

6+ Pungent hoppy aroma. Orange zest everywhere.
3 Mid orange, tiny head.
6+ Nice zesty retronasals. Packed full of full hops. Seems like it might be fertilised female hops though as it’s quite pungent and a little soapy.
4 Great balance, huge hops, but not in an offensive way. Biting bitterness.
13 Good hoppy brew. Perhaps a bit one-dimensional.

Excellent IPA that is full of classic IPA flavours. Odells are the dominant force here and the dry pine finish is a treat.

You can tell that there is far more 'Odells' in this than 'Roosters' before you even taste it. The aroma alone is alive with that combination of fruit and spice only a quality American ale can offer. The taste completely backs this up with vanilla, toffee and and almost astringent bitterness. Fantastic.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half pint, hand-pulled cask ale at The Duck & Drake. Faint beige head covering a clear golden-brown coloured body. Spotty lacing. Inviting malt-fruity smell with hints of red oranges. Dark fruits and earthy malts providing a flavour of orange marmalade with underpinning of bitterness. Well bodied. Pleasant (Leeds, 12.07.2012).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at White Horse. It pours amber, with a medium foamy white head. The nose is floral, sweaty sock, orange citrus, creaminess, mango and apricot. The taste is pine, floral, resin, orange, citrus pith, faint spice, oily hop, sweaty sock and alcohol warmth, with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The White Horse, London. Clear orange pour with a fine, white head. Ripe orange on the nose with toast, light pine and grass. Medium sweet flavor with plenty of ripe citrus, mild grassy and piney hops. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly resinous on the finish with more pine and ripe orange, along with some grapefruit and melon. It’s decent beer, though not a standout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The White Horse on Parsons Green. The pour’s deep amber color with no head. The nose is lemon and light soured grains. Some hints of malty honeyed bread and and light wood. The taste is much the same, light lemon buttered toast. Bready malts. Not a particularly fruity, hoppy beer on this showing. Light, soft and easy to drink. Overall, pretty decent.
