Bottle. My first from this brewery bought from Tesco’s at Chester. They should know better. Bronze with a small head. Slightly metallic flavour with some maltiness in the background. Virtually no trace of hops which is unforgivable in an IPA.Of all the great beers available in America why oh why did they chose to import this one. Questions should be asked.

mR_fr0g (9266) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s post GBBF minidig 16/08/2014 . Aroma is medicinal berry hop with a touch of resin, and alcohol. Clear golden / orange coloured pour with a loose white head . flavour is composed of nutty, slightly stale malts, chive hop, metal finish. A bit of hop berry flavour as well. Palate is medium carbonation and medium sweet. Pretty bad.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s Post-GBBF 2014 Tasting - London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose has light paper notes, caramel, bread, melon. Medium sweet flavor with more mellow caramel, melon, citrus candies. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with simplistic bready malts, caramel and mild leafy bitterness. A lowest common denominator IPA.

Golden colour. Off white head. Tightly filtered with an acidic spritz mouthfeel. Long unpleasant spirity quality throughout. No joy

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2014
12 oz bottle. Deep amber with a very good head and exceptional lacing. High malt/hop ratio for style; drinks like a malty pale ale. Herbal and citrus notes. O: Decent, just don’t expect a hoppy IPA.

Bright clear gold - amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Mild minerals. Airy malts, little creamy sweetness. Hops are pretty light - mild citrus, touch of marmalade. Light semi dry finish brings a little dry floralness. Fine.
