3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg dispense at The Bacchus, Newcastle. Light hazy orange with thick white head & plenty of lacing. Aroma is full of peach, mango, and grapefruit - great hop hit, very fresh. Taste showcases the grapefruit and tropical hops perfectly with just a touch of biscuit malt to back it up. Plenty of tangerine character going on too. Pithy grapefruit bitterness covers the palate and lasts long into the aftertaste. Slightly overcarbed, but that doesn't detract from the experience. Medium/dry finish. This is how I like my IPAs to be, very much enjoyed this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from keg at Euston Tap, half pint shared with Finn. Unclear, apricot coloured body. Firm lacing. Floral hoppy nose with hints of pumpkin. Resin and pumpkin in the taste profile added by a drop of malty sweetness. Dry bitter fruity ending. Has got its moments of joy. Quite heavy to drink, though (London, 05.11.2012).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Rake, London. Nice looking pour, a well carbonated, bright glowing gold. Nose is sweet and hoppy, gives the impression of potency even though it’s not a double IPA. Body is medium, palate a bit slick. Flavors are hardcore pine and hop resin, bitter all the way with just a perfunctory nod to the sweetness in the nose. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gyllengul öl med lätt dimmighet. Vitt skum. Mycket citrus i doften tillsammans med lite exotiska frukter. Beskan i smaken något enahanda för ett riktigt toppbetyg. Lite för mycket grape.
