2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper body with a white head. Decent aroma of hops with citrus. I thought the flavor left alot to be desired. Very bland for an IPA, where are the hops? I hoped for better.

Pours copper with a white head. Smells of citrus, flowers and grass. Taste is similar with the addition of some peppery elements. Some pine sol elements creep in as the beer warms.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Deep golden, orangey beer with a dense head. A pleasure to the eye. Well hopped as all traditional IPA’s with Fuggles and East Kent Goldings - classic English types. Bitterness is overwhelming to the point where this seems hard to drink. But the hops also adds beautiful aromas.

Best IPA I have ever had. The taste is so smooth and refreshing that I drank my whole 12 pack in two hours.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THis is one of SA’s better brews. Moderately hoppy, good look and great taste. However, with stronger IPA’s nowadays this one seems bland and behind the times. Still would buy this again if in a pinch.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is hard to find. A middle-of-the-road IPA. Good hop, citrus, and floral aroma and taste. Finishes smooth. Deep amber in color, woth hints of caramel, malt, and toffee. Very complex.
