3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at CPK in London. Thanks to Bruce. Pours clear copper with a creamy white ead. Quite a sweet IPA, plenty of ripe fruits, a bit of caramel, bred, pine and melon. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Well and resinous to finish, lots of pine, plenty of caramel and bread sweetness. Pretty simplistic and quite sweet.

A lot of hops but the combination of them plus a nice amount of malt seems to make this very balanced and not harsh on the palate. Not overly bitter. I can almost get the peach flavor from it. Smooth for the big ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body and small white head. Nose is red berries, peaches, caramel, hints of herbs and apricot. Taste is peachy red fruits, grass, hints of rosewater and raisins. Full body, soft carbonation. OK, but nothing special really.

On tap in a pint glass. Pours an orange amber color with a small head but good lacing on the glass. Aroma is a nice balance between citrusy hops and malty sweetness. Complex taste. Hoppy up front, fades into sweet, and finishes a little boozy. Good balance between hops and malt. Average carbonation with a slightly sharp finish. Good overall beer.

Amber orange sunset pour with moderate and fleeting head. Aroma is of hops and melon...a bit sweet. Bitter with hops, the finish lingers and becomes more bitter with time, like an ex that you've done wrong whose emotional wounds refuse to heal. I might not miss this beer when it's gone.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma not as hoppy as one would expect for an IPA. Appearance is a cloudy, pretty orangish gold. Taste is maltier than usual and not as hoppy as one would expect. A little metallic after taste that makes the pallet score drop a little in my book. Overall, just another typical less than stellar IPA.

Beautiful deep amber in color. Aroma is a light fruitiness. Immediate taste is a little too alcoholic. Pleasant carbonation which dissipates quickly. The grapefruit taste fades in after the beer is kept in the palate for a brief moment. Would be much better if the alcohol was better balanced by the flavor.

Bottle from Fratto. Dark and hazy with a thick creamy head. Smells slightly sour with citrus notes. Creamy mouth feel. Not an over powering flavor.
