3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Booths, Media City. Deep, dark amber with a thin head. Strong, but there’s plenty of tropical fruitiness in both aroma and taste, with a pleasant dry pale ale texture.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy deep copper with a finger of white head. Aroma of caramel, rye bread, citrus. Taste is light bitter followed by a more butterscotch like sweetness. Weird for an IPA. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Bronze with a small head. Some hops but far more maltier than I anticipated. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Not quite what I had expected but still quite pleasant. Well canned.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky copper appearance with a large, cream colored head and very good lacing. Herbal, woody aroma. Caramel malts up against an earthy hop profile as the flavor evolved. Something missing in the aftertaste; maybe not as fresh as it should be. Had this pegged as an ESP at a blind tasting. Had to eat crow for that guess. Would only try this again if I were at the brewery where I knew the conditions were ideal.

From a can, a pour with a clear gold. Juicey, pine, lime. I like this beer a lot . It seems like a lot of beers in Philadelphia are not high enough Ibun’s and this was a expecting on my short trip.

355ml can at Larkin’s Bar in Hull.Frothy, dense beige head leaving fair lacework behind. Clear red-amber body colour. Malt-fruity aromas. Blended taste of sappy oranges and caramel malts. Lingering bittersweet tail. Fine bodied. Likable(shared with Finn, 24,11.2015).

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
From one can, the system to open the can it’s horrible, an explosion of scum. Ambar color, small head. Aroma of old hops, sweetness malt and fruit. The taste is very sweet with a final bitterness of EKG.
For me is far away from IPA style. The hops are not really good blended.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2015 Golden honey brown appearance with fair head. Smells pretty Earthy. Taste is quite Earthy as well.. bitter, not much sweetness or malt to speak of. I think some of route 113 may actually be in this beer. Got more abrasive as the night went on.
