Bottle from Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Golden looks with a meek white head. Aroma a tad lacking with some muted hop and caramel. Sweet boozy flavour with some tropical fruit notes. Ok but not quite the phat hop hit I was hoping for.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 16/09/14. A golden coloured beer with a whitish ring of head. Pretty good. Very boozy, fruity and hoppy. Sharp bitterness. Not in your face big like most IIPAs. Almost more like a golden barley wine. Malts merge well. A long finish. I like it. Strong and tasty although the aroma is thin.

Pours a clear, orangey golden color, topped with a decent just slightly off-white head. A very pleasant malty aroma, mild citruses easily picked up. The taste is bittery, develops a more sweet taste later. Some fruity and biscuity notes towards the end and a bit metallic in the aftertaste. Apart from that, very nice.

Bottle B&M Bargains. Sweet syrup dominates everything unfortunately and the big hops are pretty much out of the picture. Metallic characteristics, could almost be a tinned beer. Hope the cask version is a lot better - I assume it is, given the high score.

Delighted to find this as a cheepo in B&M bargains. Poured amber with a white head. The taste in nice and hoppy, though nowhere near as much as you might expect from the style. There are notes of grapefruit and pine over quite a syrupy base. There’s a nice bitterness to it as well. Overall a really enjoyable beer that’s a few hops short of being exceptional.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 Bottle from B&M, pours a gold copper colour with a thin white head. Taste is sweet with a fairly mild hop kick, syrupy malt, thickish for an IPA, some resin and fruit, a nice bitter finish though could do with a few more hops.
