3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber with an inch of white head that lasts very well. Aroma of lemon, lime, honey, peach, cantaloupe. Creamy texture, quite high carbonation. There’s a fair bit of sweetness, but bitterness comes in straight away. Citrus is zestier (and more grapefruity) than suggested by the aroma. A melange of tropical and stone fruit and a bit of a rush with the citrus towards a rather dry and fairly bitter finish. Some pine and pepper show up there too. Kept thinking I’d started this too cold and some more depth and charm might emerge, but it never loosened up. Still pretty good though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
HUGE fluffy white head and a crystal clear light amber beer.
Very aromatic, florals, melon, big fruits, spices bad very citric.
A very bitter sweet beer, like a caramel cream cake with a ton of lemon. Nice sweet caramels and nut with lots of resins and citrus bitterness.
The finish is fresh and sweet, pancakes with lemon and sugar.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corps sirupeux armé d’une résine sucrée, vraiment intéressant comme texture. On peut percevoir le mais et son sucre simple dans l’éventail des céréales et le mariage avec le miel et l’aspect fruité est réussi mais pas renversant.

Bottle Beer Gonzo - Wonderful IPA and exquisitely balanced with little alcohol coming through. Lovely citrus aromas & one of the few beers brewed with honey I have really enjoyed. Well done

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy, pale amber. Thin, filmy, sticky, white head. Sweet, fusty (but in a good way), pink grapefruit, juicy, and some kind of minty herbiness going off. Very intriguing. Taste is that brûléed grapefruit, tastiness, that these DIPA’s lean toward. I’m all for it. Possibly the only beer with honey (other than Bracia), that I’ve really enjoyed.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 31st December 2015 - Pours clear golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, citrus, crisp caramely malts and hints of sweet juicy fruits. Taste is malty, bitter and floral hoppy with hints of sweet juicy fruits and herbal notes. Finish is malty, hoppy and herbal hoppy with some bitterness and crisp fruity notes. Okay DIPA, but nothing special.
