3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared a 50cl bottle from a local British shop. Pours a pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit and tropical fruits - grassy and citrus. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with some dryness in the end. Overall, a very drinkable brew.

Bottle. Crisp and clean. Great IPA and THE standout supermarket standby! Faultless mash of hop bitterness, fruitiness and long changing finish. Cheese, lemon, mango, bitter lemon. Gorgeous.

Pale straw colour, slightly cloudy. Grapefruit, pineapple and citrus in aroma and taste. On the light side of medium bodied but carbonation makes it pleasant in the mouth. Not as big a hoppy hit as some IPAs, even some English ones, but very well balanced and very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best IPA’s for everyday drinking I know of, and one that I feel captures the English side of the IPA brewing better than most. There’s fair hoppiness here, but one that works in tandem with the ale yeast and smooth drinking body. A treat, every time.

Bottle. Pours straw with a frothy white head that stays throughout the entire drink. Good lacing. Aroma is very fruity with grapefruit, lemon, grassy hops and coriander seeds. Taste is grapefruit, earthy hops, light bitterness, light sweetness, hints of spice. Medium body, medium carbonation, quite dry.

Another nice ipa from this brewery. Blond pale with white foam. Good hoppy nose. Really soft in the mouth. Is more like a pale ale, very balanced.
