3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of Tesco. A very aptly named beer! A typical modern American style, spicy, bitter, heavily hopped IPA. Very refreshing and has more bite when served slightly cooler. Not a typical St Austel beer, but very welcome and I'll certainly buy more.

Buon aroma, un pò sporca, sentiti di frutta gialla, limone e pompelmo, non molto dolce, amaro per nulla invadente, molto equilibrata, si berrebbe a litri!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle condition, poured into a UK pint sleeve without any sediment leaving the bottle (Sep 2011).
Good, clear mid-golden colour, full head of white foam. The head sadly fell away very swiftly, leaving just a weak wispy covering along with a thin collar around the glass.
The aroma is mostly of hops (label claims it is "Powerfully Hopped"), however there is also a semi-sweet malty smell just below the grapefruit type citrusy hops.
The taste is mini hop bitterness (those grapfruits again), with a healthy malt undertone present from start to finish.
This is almost sweet, it is sweet for an IPA, yet there are plenty of hop notes to let you know it’s an IPA: very well made and lovely to drink. The alcohol is well hidden by the blend of ingrediants, I had to check the bottle to see if mine was really 5.5% ABV.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear honey with a thin head. Aroma is quite light. Balanced grapefruit hop flavour with a bittersweet finish. Palate develops into a rather intense dry hop.
