355ml bottle ftom Tesco - Hazy amber body, thin white froth. Nose is plummy and little else, the expected fruity sweetness doesn’t come in the taste, and it comes across as being an average cheap IPA at best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml Bottle: poured into a stemmed ’Yuengling’ badged glass at home on 16th Nov 2013.
Golden amber body with a slight haze, on top a white covering of tight bubbles.
The nose was both citrus hoppy and mildly sweet molasses: this mixture carried on into the taste, sweeter than I expected from a US brewed IPA (with Fuggles). I enjoyed it but not sure it is ’true to style’.
Medium bodied, the alcohol hidden nicely and overall a fine, easy to drink IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco drunk at home. Clear amber thin white head. Toffee on the aroma. Not much of an ipa to be honest. Some malt some harsh hop on finish . East coast ipa. It’s ok. Bit empty in the mouth.
