4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. This was a gift from my brother. Rajah pours golden yellow with a nicely sized head of small bubbles. The aroma is heavy on hop resin. You can certainly smell the citrus, acid and pine associated with the hop style. The taste is delightfully hoppy without being over the top. Itís well balanced and almost epitomizes the style. The palate is slightly oily but leaves a dryness behind that makes you want more. The acid content seems higher than normal. If you have a sensitive stomach one or two of these would be enough. Overall, this is an excellent beer and a nice surprise from a brewer I havenít heard of before.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade, thanks thrashD. Pours light amber, small white head.Smells like the West Holts field at Glastonbury. Medium carb, lots of oil on the tongue. Flavour is a fight between dank and fruit - big pine but also summer fruit, pineapple, melon, over-ripe mango. Dank, bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Perfectly golden color. Intense tropical aroma of pineapple/tangerine, gently backed by a pine sharpness. Taste is pineapple tartness with a rounded honeylike, malty bottom end. Bitterness lingers in the middle/back of the mouth with pine spice and citrus. My preferred style of IPA. Great dimension for anytime of year.

Bottle from jsquire, thanks Jeff! Pours a golden orange with a white head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has oranges, pine, other citrus and some fresh fruits. with toffee. Taste is of sweet fruits, oranges, sprucy pine, and a solid malt base. Quite hop-forward. Light to medium bodied and quite dry. Finishes well balanced between the bitter hops and the sweet hops. A very tasty and solid IPA! 14.8
