Bottle at my parents house, from JS thanks to the old man, 25/01/13. Hazed mid amber with a good sized frothy white head that retains well. Nose carries muted hop tones - dumbed down and not very fresh, caramel malts, orange, lemon sherbet, hint of soap, a general musty and tired aroma. Lots of deScriptors but none make it score more than 5 ! Taste comprises faded hops, touch of pine, citrus, orange marmalade, caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, some hop bitterness in a dry finish. A pretty basic and below par IPA.

Bottle at a friends housewarming. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Citrus and malt aromas, light red fruit, light butterscotch. Taste is more of the same. Sticky finish.

355ml bottle. Light floral aroma. Cloudy bronze in colour with a frothy white head. Spicey lemon/lime hop flavour with malty and caramel notes. Creamy and fully bodied with a bitter citrus finish. Pretty good.

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.

Juha (71) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Surprisingly malty on the nose and the taste too, not that IPA-like at all, but good bang for buck me thinks.

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.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
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

Not getting much to be honest, just a metallic and slightly hoppy taste, not great.

Giochaurand (268) - FINLAND - DEC 20, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015 Bottle. Pours brown copper with medium foamy head. Nice petrichor aromas with also citrous and malts. Taste is orange peel, spices and hops.

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.
