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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very hazy golden with a small white head that almost disappears completely, ok lacing. The aroma is incredibly fresh with stunning amounts of grapefruit, also plenty of mango and other tropical fruits. The flavour is strong and also very grapefruity, in addition to tropical fruits and some berries. Not much malty notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Very crisp and refreshing beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at Leyton Technical 8th Feb 14.
Pours slightly hazy golden with a very flat, thin head, little to no fizz. Smells quite hoppy, but less than most modern west coast IPAs. Taste yo-yos between citrus-sugary sweet and bitter in a pleasing way. Medium hops linger for a short time on the finish, which is more pleasing than the taste. Light, refreshing body, and high ABV is well concealed, but I’m not overly convinced by the sweet taste, even if it was novel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber/golden with a slight haze. Malty on the nose, with a touch of grapefruit coming through this also lingers into the taste but is soon kicked out of the way by a big hop finish. It becomes just a little one note this beer the longer you drink it. (rating backlog, tasted on or around 16/06/13)
