3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Green hop aroma and musty pale malt.
Appearance: Muddy amber body with a thin white head that holds well. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Sharp lime, grass and earth. Smooth but not particularly interesting.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Flat carbonation.
Overall: A decent beer, though Iím not quite sure what style it is - itís listed here as a Bitter, it calls itself an IPA (despite being just 4.4% ABV) but tastes like a Pale Ale. Not too dissimilar to Caledonianís Deuchars IPA (which really isnít an IPA either).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at spoons Washington. Hazy amber thin white head. Sour farmyard aroma, not unpleasant though. The usual citrus and resin flavour, with a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, slick, bitter finish. Not bad, but this type of IPA is becoming very familiar, and thereís not much to distinguish this one.

Cask at Voodoo Cafe Bar in Darlington. Clear orange amber colour, creamy fine white head leaving lots of lacing and malty hoppy aroma. Smooth deep bitterness with caramel, resiny citrus hop, and earthy, sourish notes. Medium bodied, gives a lingering back of the throat bitter finish. Nice satisfying IPA.
