2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is rich resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a huge resin floral hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I think they threw the hop bucket into this one, but unfortunately it contained all the wrong hops :-(

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. Golden amber with a loose white head anf light carbonation; citrusy aroma; soft toffee taste with some sweet grapefruit to follow; and a caramel biscuity finish with some zingy spice. I’ve tried quite a few east coast IPA’s in the past few weeks, and this one is definitely better than average.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 39°. Color is a deep golden with light carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a sweet fruity hop scent. It has a light and crisp medium body. Flavor comes in with malt giving it mild caramel notes and a bit of fruit, this is back with spicy hops and white pepper. After taste is clean and dry with just a touch of the fruit still showing in the back. Overall its a very mellow and easy drinking IPA, just not a stand out that you’ll remember.
