3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells particularly yummy - sweet, fruity hops. It’s rather dry. Finish is rather dry. Apart from the Arabian peninsular-style finish, it’s a refreshing pale ale.

Bottle from Great Grog. Very hazy amber brown colour, reasonable head. Biscuit, resin tropical & citrus frut aroma. Citrus hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Another good Summer Wne pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Appellation. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Interesting citric aroma with grapefruit, lemon and tangerines. Similar flavours and quite bitter with lingering grapefruit and tangerines again. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

330ml bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Love the caramel aroma coming from the big hops, lures you into a bit of a false sense of security. I expected a really soft creamy palate, which you just get on the front of the tongue, but, at the back, there’s a really tangy, sharp, refreshing bitterness, with almost acidic citrus late on. Poured with a thin, clean white head and a really nice gold appearance. Another cracker.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Hazy orange amber, thick rocky white head fades to a thin film. Pungent, resinous juicy tropical fruits on the nose - passion fruit, citrus, pineapple, gooseberry. Nice pithy dry palate, slightly herbal, lots of bitter grapefruit, puckeringly dry finish. Tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lovely golden orange with a thin white head. Nice dry hopped American style IPA which dominates the aroma and pursues the taste throughout the smooth drinking experience up front which develops into a dry finish. A really enjoyable beer that really gets the American IPA style right (and at a good price!).

Barely any head, OK lacing. Haribo strawbs, green gummy bears and Barratts fruit salad on the nose- something I’ve recently come to associate with ethyl acetate from unsuccessful/badly aerated homebrews. Ultra-thin body. Overly bitter- not much allowed to shine through flavour-wise. Slight headache throb. Was definitely expecting more.
