3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a York Tesco Express. Pours a light amber gold. Aroma seems to have a touch of skunk (clear bottle). There’s some fruity aroma too. Well, there is a lot of hop. Enough to give a mild burn. Still think there’s a skunk touch, but if it is, then it’s not interfering too much. Bothers my mind, but that’s a small thing (the bother, not the mind). BB 31 March 14, so it shouldn’t have been around too long? Anyway it is otherwise a very tasty and excellent ale. Rating excludes my skunk concerns.

Mild hopfiger Antrunk mit leichter, angenehm milder Herbe. Helle Getreidenoten, etwas trocken, süffige Würzigkeit. Hier wird gehalten was versprochen wird, ein simples nettes IPA. 11/11/11/11/11/11

Think the Tesco label knocks a few points off for some people. Not fantastic but good value for money. An OK beer

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light gold. White head doesn’t stay. Nose is light and fruity - grapefruit, cloudy lemonade. Taste is surprisingly more pungent than the nose with a lot more bitter than it was letting on. Nice cloudy lemonade taste with a bit of grapefruit gas sprinkled through it. Finish is a wee bit watery, but a decent quaffer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Total Skunky crap.
Clear bottle so probably all hop extract taste is a muddled Skunky mess no district hop flavour and no malt flavour is apparent at all.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear gold, with a white head. Aroma has some bready notes and a bit of bubblegum. Taste was somewhat sweet with a mild bitterness. Clean finish some hint of citrus, I’d prefer more hops in a ’IPA’ ale but quite acceptable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden coloured with small head. Faint hop aroma. The taste is of mild hops and malts. A little carbonation. Very easy to drink bitter. Refreshing, otherwise just safe for the masses to drink.
