[Cask at Chippenham BF] Deep gold. Lots of peach up front. On tasting it’s very mellow and relaxing, with an orangey fruitiness developing. Sweeter and less aggressive than most IPAs, but very tasty and satisfying. Relatively mild bitterness to finish. Lovely beer, really enjoyed this. c4

5.9% gold colour with a good head, the aroma is of oranges and hops, very hoppy taste with an orange aftertaste.

Looks like a nice witbier - hazy, hazy, hazy. Initial taste is very non-descript. Felt overly carbonated with a hint of citrus and very little bitterness.
Lingering taste is just a late appearing hint of hoppiness and not much else.
Certainly, at $3.45 a bottle I won’t be buying this again. Not when there are so many better locally produced IPAs available for so much less.

bottle. Pours light golden/orange, cloudy with sediment. Aroma is light, mostly fruit, citrus, pineapple. The malt in the taste is very muted, mostly hops, bitter citrus, aome light sweet honey. Good beer, but not great.

Tap at Rustico. Fresh floral hop nose with a touch of citrus oil. Dry crisp malts, bright snappy citrus and floral hops, yeast is just a touch dirty. Excellent beer.

Hazy, straw coloured pour with half a finger of white foam. Scents of lemon grass, tangerine, lime and candy floss. Tangerine, slight grapefruit, lemon grass and honey in the flavour. Smooth across the palate and a mildly bitter finish

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL lickbow bottle. Pours a bright, hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma of sharp pine, mild fruity malt undertone, and a hint of yeast. Nice. Flavour has a lot of bittering hops as well as some good citrusy bite to it. Malts are there but are definitely drowned out by the hop aspects, but there is some honey-like sweetness which is quite nice. Feels lighter on the palate which I don’t mind, and the carbonation is in check. The floral aspect mixed with the mild sweetness and dry yeast character blend elegantly in the finish. This is a pretty solid beer, I’d argue it is at least somewhat of an IPA, just not in the vain of the American variety of the style. Worth paying for, but the high price might prevent me from purchasing again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light cloudy yellow with lots of sediment. Clean hop aroma. Taste - earthy, floral and grassy hops up front with a touch of lemon. A moderate sweet malt backbone that balances it quite nicely. A bit of a soapy aftertaste but overall pretty solid IPA. Didn’t know what to expect with an English IPA.

Had at the angel near that London tube station. Decent. Clear gold, white head nice retention. Grapefruit and toffee nose. Silky body and feel at first then turns a bit gritty.
