3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A murky amber pour with a billowing white head; quite a gentle aroma with some grass from the Saaz hops coming through the citrus from the Citra; the Citra hops dominate the taste though, with a rich sweet grapefruit taste, and a creamy body, perhaps from the barley; the finish is smooth with a lasting grapefruit bitterness, and a pleasant rounded warmth. A subtle and very drinkable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky gold beer with frothy white head. Citrus aromas, and massive pine flavours with citrus in the background. Really good beer, and makes a nice change from hop bomb IPAs. Great stuff.

A bottle via beer52. Always like to see a beer with live yeast. No malt/hop balance just an overpowering hop taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours amber with off white head. Well hopped but a little too boozy so a little hard work. Decent IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Appleyards Deli, Shrewsbury. Murky golden-amber with a thin white head. Good resinous mouthfeel. Pine up front then lots of citrus- sour lemon and grapefruit- followed by some mango and then a dirty, earthy bitterness to finish. Didn’t do it for me at all- I’m quite surprised by the high scores here.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at The Cellar, Chester. Slightly hazy golden. Long-lasting white head. Aroma is a gorgeous tropical fruit cocktail. Slightly grassy too. Taste is equally juicy, fairly dry and only slightly bitter. It’s incredibly drinkable. This is exactly how I like my IPAs and it’s clearly in great form here.
