3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can from Croxley’s. Pours lightly hazed amber with white head. Aromas of sweet malts, some pine, orange, and pungent hops. Flavors of orange, pine, sweet caramel malts, and moderate amount of hop bitterness. Hops and malt are lacking balance and ends kind of messy. Not bad, but not great either.

Takeaway from Hengler's Circus Glasgow. The can exploded on opening. Tch!
Good aroma, clean. Frothy stable head.
Very nice beer, extremely well balanced. Orange then grapefruit bitter at finish. Good stuff.

25oz can. Pours a clear bright orange color with a white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Nice malt aroma and hops. The flavor is excellent. For me spot on with an English style ipa. Perfectly balanced with malts and hops. This you could drink all day long. Love the flavors.

Hazy copper with a big tight head. Aroma of peach and pine, some tropical notes. Taste bitter and crisp, but with a metallic edge. Firm bitterness the whole way through. Overall pretty nice IPA

Really like this brew, and love its complexity and the hoppy overall taste, which is balanced by the malt. Can from JDW Lancaster poured with a slightly cloudy appearance when held up to the light, and a fairly brisk off-white head. Initial feeling of hops, followed by a malty mid, and a quite long balanced finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can at the Old Swan Inne (JDW), Evesham. Had thoroughly enjoyed the version of this beer made at Adnams, and also their Sweet Action beer, so was looking forward to this. It poured light amber with a large off-white head and a light fizz. Light peach and pine smell- less strong aroma than I’d expect from a modern IPA. The initial taste is rather metallic, although with further tasting the metal does subside. It’s as bitter as you’d expect, but as with the aroma the flavours are rather subdued- pine, grapefruit and peach struggle through in a rather half-hearted manner. The mouthfeel is a little thin too. It’s drinkable, yes, it’s OK, but it’s very disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful bright gold with a hint of orange. Nice and thick, bright white head. Beautiful citrus and tropical aromas, can also catch a hint of pine. Delicate but prominent, excellence. Not a lot of the citrus translates into the taste, actually a fair bit more malt than I expected. A fair amount of bitterness, but it doesn’t linger, as a result the finish is quite clean for the style but overall the beer is well balanced. Not as dense as I like my IPAs - but the good level of carbonation makes this quite sessionable.
