Bottle at a friend’s house. It was either this or Badger Firkin Fox so I had this, she had the Firkin Fox and both of us agreed that we’d made the right choice. Golden in colour, light and clear with not a lot of obvious head. Smell is a bit buttery and somewhat malty, so the hoppy fruit is a bit muted. It comes out in the bittersweet (but more bitter than sweet) taste: a burst of mango, grapefruit and lemonade. Bitter satisfying finish. Simple but quite tasty.

Aroma: could have been better but still a bit of hay, grass, white grapefruit, lime
Appearance: light amber, medium head disappears rather quickly
Taste: dry, medium to high bitter
Palate: nice bitter finish
A solid IPA or rather AIPA (Chinook+ Cascade). Very drinkable but lacks the wow factor.

I think the APA deScription is nearer the mark than the IPA label, but it certainly uses the American hops well and is very drinkable. Clear gold with a thin covering of white head. Medium body and well carbonated. Tastes fresh and fruity, well supported by caramel malt. Bit of fresh grass too. Good job.

Bottle from Tesco. Dry, slightly punishing hop flavour. Like a sour lemon drop dropped in alka seltzer. I don’t mean that as a negative though, this is a lovely. Professional UK beer, and certainly one of the better bottles you’ll find in a supermarket.

Bottle 500 ml. Those English IPA/APAs are different to Polish ones. I don’t like them that much, but this one was allright I would say. Proper hoppy notes, even if not very distinctive.

Golden and spritzy, with a bright hoppy nose. Crisp and dry-bitter, excellently balanced with lightly fruity and sweet malt. Very nice.
