3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 640ml bottle on 9/12/2013. Pours a clearish dark golden with a small head. Features a light fruity aroma which is very subdued by IPA standards. Flavour wise, the story is the same. Nothing objectionable but nothing particularly interesting. There’s a bit of nutty malt, a fair bit of sweet citrus and tropical fruit, and a medium, slightly lingering hop bitterness. Has a medium to full body and average carbonation. Easy enough to quaff but a bit forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt, grapefruit, citrus, pine, fruits and hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit and citrus leading to a hoppy finish. Pretty decent effort.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 24/08/2014. Poured a slightly translucent golden amber with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced with clingy spots. High carbonation with medium to large bubbles. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste initially of fairly sweet caramel followed by slight grapefruit and a good hops tanginess. Taste, while strong, is not as intense as the aroma led me to expect. Medium body. Slightly bitter finish. A good example of an IPA that went down well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 640 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber with a substantial and lasting white head and lively sparkle. Aromas of lemon, grape skins, crusty bread and a touch of pine. Taste is quite subdued compared to the nose. There’s some sweet malt at the front before some lemon zest bitterness comes through in the mid-palate. However, that washes away quickly to finish with some gentle fruit (grape juice?) at the end. Quite a refreshing beer, but not really typical of an IPA.
