2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Live at The Penguin. Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Big fan of Roosters but this is a disappointment. Clear coppery orange with a patchy white head. Bilious aroma with Southern Comfort, hints of leaf, dried spices; fenugreek, vomit. Hop flavour killed by soggy honeyed malt, US-style. Hints of soapy floral hop, tea, caramel, vomited honey, throat sweets, scented drawer liners and posh beetroot/parsnip crisps fried in sunflower oil. And that’s being generous. It really just tastes of honey and lemon throat sweets. Getting a bit sick of English brewers imitating this cloying US style of D/IPA that smothers all hop flavour and aromatics.

500ml bottle shared with mr_h. Orange amber, decent head. Tropical fruit, pine & resin aroma. Biscuit, grain, tropical & citrus fruit flavour. Hoppy biscuuit & citrus fruit aftertaste. Big tasting golden / pale ale hybrid.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tomlinson’s, Inverness 
Amber, clear, big frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of caramel malts, soft caramelised orange, touch floral, hint of citrus, malty aroma, not much citrus hops
Taste - Caramel, some fruity caramelised orange malts, piney hops, grassy bitter hops, rather malty, not really a fan of this
Palate - soft carb, medium body, sweet malts, bitter bit tangy hops. Finish is dry, bitter grassy hop
Overall - Wasn’t enjoying this. The best before date was marked 02/14 suggesting it was bottled 6 months ago? I think it’s too old. Needs a re-rate when fresh.

Bottle. Golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are toffee and smoky malts with toast and brown sugar. Low floral soapy pine with earthy pear and spiced oranges. Citrus rind with tea and hints of honey. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with earthy, spicy notes and toffee malts. Toasted with pine bitterness. A nicely balanced beer.

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!

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Tuesday)
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.
