3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bains Wines, Netherton. A slightly strange beer: a bit thin, slightly flat. Odd malt profile, slightly tangy. Hops are massively lemony. It certainly is dry and citrussy. I certainly enjoyed this, but couldn’t get my head round it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with a small white head that’s soon gone. Aroma of oranges, lemon, mandarin, light bread. Low carbonation. Lots of sweet mandarins, some flowers, then it dries out a lot with a fairly bitter finish. Just a bit soapy. Suspect it’s past its best, but quite interesting.

golden amber color. Big soft hoppy nose with apples and orange EKG I would guess. The mouth is very smooth with moderately aggressive hoppiness. Nice lingering hoppy finish. This beer really highlight English hops. Wonderful. On cask at GBBF 2013

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. Clear golden with a medium sized white head with good retention and lace. Hoppy nose with lots of citrus and something candy like. Flavour is also hoppy; candy and citrus, sweet tropical fruits like persimmon, mango, apricot and lychee. Light bready malts to back it up. Medium/full body, quite soft and sweet with lower than typical IPA bitterness. Not too sweet, though. Long hoppy finish. Drinks well, alcohol doesn’t show much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Craft Beer Rising. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is hop dominated of grapefruit, apricot, some pineapple and floral hops. Taste of dry grapefruit, apricot, apple, a little resin and floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A long, dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A decent British DIPA.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Boring pale yellow beer. The smell is shy and like dishwashing detergent. The taste is sweet in the body and instead of hoppy bitterness a sour grapy taste kicks in. The aftertaste is grapy and a bit wrong. Not really a bad beer but definitely not what you expect, when you read double IPA on the lable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange color with small white head. Hops, yes, sweet, citrus, grapes. Taste is very sweet and has a heavy grape sweetness towards the end. Quite off balance. Meh.

C ’est le genre de bière que je n’apprécie pas du tout .. C’est pas bien balancé, c’est traîîîînant, sans grand équilibre. Le côté citronné me rapelle plus la corvée de la vaiselle à la main qu’un dimanche de mai à Menton ...
Bref pas pour moi !
