3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber, frothy off-white head. Aroma is woody and yeasty. Flavours of caramel and loads of spice. Some citrus too. Spiciness could do with being balanced with sweeter, fruity flavours a little more. Not bad at all but not as well balanced as it could be.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Surprisingly malty on the nose and the taste too, not that IPA-like at all, but good bang for buck me thinks.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with thin lacey head and medium carbonation. Light hoppy aroma with a hint of grass. Taste is malty, grassy, dry with a good crisp tangy bitter finish. Reasonable palate, smooth with fizz, slightly watery. Not particularly differentiated, but decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brownish gold with white head. Gentle, toffee like flavours, malty, caramel all from the off, not much on the hop side that you would expect from a modern IPA, some boiled vegetable notes perhaps. Not really enough happening to make it an IPA I would say

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not getting much to be honest, just a metallic and slightly hoppy taste, not great.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml bottle. Aroma is thick malt, slightly tart, a little hop. Mouthfeel is greasy, feels like it’s been fermented too hot. Bitterness is actually ok, but not much else around it is. Needs a good blast of late hop on the nose. Won’t be buying again.
