2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle enjoyed with friends. Pours a copper gold with almost no head that quickly dissipates. Looks flat and unappealing. Aroma is strongly of wood with a little toffee. Slightly cardboardy hops. Taste is a woody carboardy sweetness that’s overpowered by a metallic bitterness. Rough and messy and flat to finish. Metallic aftertaste dominates as well. Bad beer, very disappointing for a highly regarded brewery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Mabel’s Tavern, Euston. Copper, clear with the tiniest bit of off-white head. The initially off-putting metallic and sulphurous aroma gives way to a kinder scent of brambles. Bitter taste with a suggestion of sweetness; the sulphur egginess still holds sway. Nicely carbonated. It’s ok.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,5 liters. For an ipa quite tame hops. But suited the situation just right. Easy to drink, crisp and bitter, satisfactory.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Amber colour, small head. Taste has strongly malts, in the English way. Not just pale malts, but with some darker taste. Then there is hops giving some bitter palate. Basically a bitter, but with more alcohol. Yes, and with a bit more hops. Well, in a summary, this might be close the original IPA, but without the conditioning in a ship.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
En klassisk engelsk ipa, ikke vanvittig meget humlesmag fra fuggles humlen men nok til at det vare ved i eftersmagen
