4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the Euston Tap, London. Poured a hazy blood orange with the most incredible Simcoe-led piney hop aroma rising out of the glass. Taste follows the appearance and heady aroma in being an almost viscous powerhouse of bitterness and sweet caramel backbone. This beer is no longer revolutionary, but a few years it could have been. I will gladly drink it though knowing I can gave it as fresh as can be thanks to it being local. If you like heady hops and lots of them on your tongue, give this one a whirl.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy yellow appearance that was a bit off putting. Small head and very Vitter. Hops and citrus are also present. Too bitter for my own personal taste but still very nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy orange pour with a smallish white crown. Pungent hop aroma with notes of tropical fruits, cat pee and spice. The hops and fruit were served up again in spades flavour-wise. Typically cracking balance. Mouth coating bitterness. Can’t fault this, a winning kick-bottom collaboration.

Oct 2012 - bottle, cold. Very nice IPA. One of the best ones I’ve tried. Foretaste is rich caramel, bitterness is marked but not overpowering. A bit floral (which is one of the aspects of IPA I don’t like so much). Good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Ginger beer orange; bottle conditioned. Small, sparse head. Strong bitter grapefruit hops aroma. Taste is of warming alcohol, strongly bitter, citrus, earwax. Spiky, tangy, rough feel. A bit of a one-dimensional bitter thing.
