3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. Murky golden with a frothy offwhite head. Subtle but deep floral hippy aroma with hints of grapefruit, caramel, pine resin. Thick but smooth and creamy. Heavily bitter, with low sweetness in comparison. A lot of character and complexity in this brew. A magnificent IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle from Oak Barrel, Sydney. Brewed 90 days before BB date of 27/5/15. Pours translucent deep orange with a stable medium white head. Certainly a hop monster with substantial pine resin, citrus orange/grapefruit, soft peppery spices and a subdued caramel malt bill on the nose and tongue. Palate is amazingly easy drinking and light for an ABV of 8.2% with a huge lingering dry resinous hop finish. The archetypal US West Coast IPA.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
66cl bottle.Very attractive intensely bitter nose, hardly funky at all, not fruity, not resinous, more like wormwood. Palate is ultra bitter but also very drinkable, with a caramel note and some malt. The high ABV is well integrated. Eminently balanced and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear with thin white head. Nice hop and malt aroma. Woody aroma. Bitter but not too unbalanced for my tastes. Fairly extreme aftertaste on my palate.
