Cask, 7.7% at Borefts 2011. 2009 version. Mild fruity aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Good fruity flavour, some creamy notes. Hop and alcohol bitterness, a bit rough, but not bad. Could have done with less alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy gold pour, bright white head leaves a moderate lacing on the glass. Strong floral and citrus (orange) nose with the hops receding in the mouth. Medium body flavored by fruits, cheese and a grassy bitterness. Very different from an American/West Coast IPA and I don’t believe it’s traveled well in the bottle. Would love to try this one on tap in the UK as it shows every sign of being a winner when fresh!

Pours a hazy golden with a nice white head that lasts. Floral aroma. Resinous hop flavor with a nice touch of bitterness that lingers slightly. A very nice mild IPA.

Bottle shared by Jan (Euston Tap) with Harrisoni and myself. Cheers Jan! Hazy gold beer, tidy white persistent head. Softish semi dry palate. Lovely balance. Very light malt. Mellow but tasty hops - mild grapefruit with orange and a little peach. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like dirty lemonade in a glass with heavy sediment, the aroma is an equal mix of fresh hops and a citrus/lemon background. The flavor is big on the lemon and citrus and is rather dry, although the hop bite to it is sneaky and makes its presence in the finish. Overall a very good IPA, rather unique in its taste profile, although that could be due to the way it was brewed.
