3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, malt and quite a bit of marmalade. Sweet malty and fruity flavour, with quite a bit of Fullers character, but a little more bitter, perhaps.

500 ml bottle from Redmonds. God, I hate the labels from this brewery, at least they aren?t still using comic sans. Pale, clear amber, frothy white head. Light, sugary malt, some resin hops and pine notes, a little muted. Flavour is again sweet up front, rising bitterness toward the finish, grapefruit notes. Light body, quite fizzy. Bitter finish. Improves as it warms.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
NOT an American style IPA. This is a traditional English style IPA with a bready, cereal-like malt backbone that dominates the flavor. Pours a golden amber, crystal clear, small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of cheerios, some floral hops, absolutely zero whiff of citrus per the label. Taste is the same, some graininess like rye spice in the finish. Not great balance here, the bready malts make this rather cloying, lack of hop presence is disappointing when a brewer labels something as American style. Not a drain pour, but not enjoyable.
