3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chinook based IPA (forget about the "pale ale" statement in the label) with a characteristic kind of spicy and pepper final subtle flavour enhancing the hop bittering. Cloudy aspect with smooth floral-flavour in mouth.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Solid enough hazy golden pour with decent frothy white head. Hops are certainly present in the aroma, but fainter than I expected - bracing for the 7.1% alcohol hit... which doesn’t really come. Exceptionally smooth and drinkable. Touches of citrus. Perhaps doesn’t have the hop explosion you’d like out of an IPA, but a very, very drinkable beer.
