3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank at Boom Art Cafe. Slightly fermented fruit malt, light dark fruit, medium bitterness. More hop in the taste than the nose. Body is bitter, fizzy effervescent carbonation, fruity dry slightly sharp finish. Perhaps not enough hop to balance the malt flavours (dry pale malt, somewhat too sharp), esp. for an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copenhagen 29/4 2016. 33 cl bottle from Barley Wine. Roaring Saberttooth tiger om the label. A bit too old (BB end of January). Pours hazy copper brown with big yellowish head. Settles as creamy crown of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Sweetish aroma of fermented exotic fruit with notes of orange and grape fruit providing a little balance. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Taste has sweetness but is overpowered by quite prominent hoppy bitterness which dominates the aftertaste. Tasty IPA which does not save on the hops unnecessarily.

Pours dark cloudy amber with light head. Aroma is of hops and soft fruit. Taste is hoppy, orange peel, moving to a bitter toffee/coffee after taste. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A slightly hazy amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, grapefruit, orange and some peach. Taste of caramel, resin, spicy orange, grapefruit, some peach, slight brown sugar and floral hops in the background. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, grapefruit bitterness in the finish with some caramel sweetness. I agree with most people that it’s a little sweet for an IPA, more like a strong amber ale. Nice flavours though.
