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 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Nondescript slightly caramel aroma. Poured a brilliant deep amber.
Head formed no lace in glass. First impression a simple, numbing bitterness with little hop flavour, but a rich crystal backbone. This beer represents a more authentic IPA style but unfortunately tasted a little old fashioned for my taste and I would struggle to drink more than 1 or 2.

Malty with a sweet and bitter note. Pours clear amber with small, shy head. Quite like it, even though it’s rather down to earth compared to other IPAs.

Pours a failry clear amber color, topped with a medium sized white head, creamy and pretty lasting. Very grassy aroma with some lemony feel to it. SOme dusty maltiness in the back. Mild.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a crystal clear deep coppery amber colour with a one-finger cream dense foam head that retained very well and laced well. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of moderately sweet caramel/sugary malt with a hint of pine; lacks any real hops presence. Taste of moderately sweet caramel/brown sugar malt plus with a very low harsh bitterness as well as being a bit tart. Light body. A bit sweet, slightly dry and with a moderate length low harsh bitterness but with more of a tart than bitter finish. More an English Bitter style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Look: Light amber, clear, head is small and not very long lasting.
Aroma: Very week aroma. More malty/caramelly notes than hoppy/resinous notes.
Taste: Fairly sweet and somewhat malty, not really balanced out by hop bitterness. Not much complexity. Mellow hop bitterness in aftertaste.
Palate: Medium body, not too much carbonation, no excess alcohol.
Overall not impressive, I won’t buy it again.
