2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with near white head. The aroma has some vague resiny hops, a bit of fruity raisin esteriness and then that house yeast nearly butterscotch note. The house yeast doesn’t work here for me. The taste is similar as I get hops that are vague and bitter and a bit resiny mixed with the house yeast buttered bread and butterscotch. Didn’t not really like this one. The yeast or maybe it is an off note, just doesn’t work.

Lemon aroma! Cloudy copper color with a small white head. Good initial but finishes a little dry.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottled - nice amber color. Sweet slightly hoppy aroma. Decent hop flavor but has a lesser quality to it (possibly an old bottle).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml twist off (!), can’t imagine shipping this beer overseas and using a twist off (let alone shipping ipas in non refrigerated containers [hint hint shelton]).. Semi-hazed amber pour, nice foamy off-white head. The aroma is actually really fresh and nice didn’t catch a bottle date but it smells nice, grainy and bready but not overpoweringly so, just a nice well-rounded malt-accentuated hop perfume. Flavor is resiny, some fruit notes, nice bitterness dry, jsut a hint of caramel and toast. Not bad. Must be a super-fresh bottle too. Pairs good with the salted broccoli im eating for some reason.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper colored, moderate strong creamy off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malts, some biscuit, fruity and floral hops. Taste is moderate sweet caramel malt, fruity and floral hops, citrus as well, some biscuit in the finish, moderate+ bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Moderate+ bodied and carbonation, oily. Decent, not great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz can: Aroma has got a lot of candy like ho textures with caramel notes poking through. Appearance is an amber and somewhat red with an off white head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste has got a hard candy like hop note with a light malt texture intermingled. Palate has got a lingering buttery malt and hop texture in the after taste. Overall, it’s alright nothing special. Cheers!

Aroma: resin, pine, fruity, caramel. Appearance: hazy gold, small, white, frothy head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets continue, resin again, caramel, turns quite bitter in the finish. Overall: nice IIPA, could do with some more complexity in the palate. Bottle at GBBF 2015, Kensington Olympia.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly haze burnt orange pour with semi-creamy 2-finger head that remains throughout. Spice hop and pine are there with faint citrus, but definitely some metallic and soapiness. Malts try to help balance everything out, but still pretty bitter. Not horrible, but not very good either.
