3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with big, fine off-white head, settles in minutes. Aroma is hoppy, resinous, piney, floral, fruity, nutty, malty and surprisingly sweet. Flavor is mildly hoppy, citrus, with a sweet malt finish and a hoppy, mildly sweet aftertaste. Not particularly hoppy, but the balance of hop and malt is pleasant. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and mildly crisp texture. A solid IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Pours an amber color with a tan head. Has a herbal somewhat bready nose. Not a very complex taste. Mild bitterness. Thin mouthfeel. Not what I expected from an IPA. It is just an ok beer. Nothing it would seek out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear light golden amber with a big pillowy off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is bready, biscuit malts and fruity, grassy hops (cascade?).
The flavor is milder than expected - some sweet bready, biscuit malts with a little fruit and a decent grassy, slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK IPA - too much biscuit malt and not enough hop flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium copper with a fairly frothy, well-sustained head - strong grapefruit notes from the hops, as well as a healthy dose of earthy Marris Otter character, a touch of caramel - low carbonation in the mouth - flavor is medium sweet up front, but dries out through the middle, leaving a more Biscuity malt character - fairly malt forward until the tail end, when citric, peppery, and mildly woody hops take over, lingering into the finish - reminds me of a slightly less assertive version of Torpedo - good.

Pours golden with a thin white head that's gone quickly. Nose is lightly hoppy on a strong backbone of malt. Flavor is moderately bitter. Very pleasing. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very nice East Coast style IPA.

Gravicask, 1/3 pint, GBBF 2013. Cloudy dark golden body. Not much head or lacing. Malt-fruity aroma, mid-sweet. Flavours of orange and apricot followed by dry and prominent, bitter, fruity shells towards the ending. Fine bodied. Nice (London Olympia 14.08.2013).

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2013. Served by the brewer. Poured a hazy light orange with a small amount of white head. Big hop aroma, Cascade, I think, but I may be wrong and some sweet orange peal. Tropical fruit flavours which turn to tart grapefruit. Lingering hop bitterness is perhaps a tad astringent, but overall pretty good IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a lively, clear dark golden body and a small, lasting off-white head that leaves lacings. Itís a bit malty on the nose, lighty bready and with some caramel, but itís the hops that plays the leading role. Grapefruit, some pine cones and a grassy hint. Itís almost effervescent on the palate, with a full body, quite dry, but with some residual sweetness. Caramel hints in the flavor, quite bitter and grapefruity. Some grassy notes in the finish which has mostly bitterness and pink grapefruit. A quite nice one, but somehow it weighs in a little bit too light, and is missing some complexity. 130829
