3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was all over the place in England (on tap). Clear golden, white head, clinging viciously to the glass. Smooth, gentle, low bitterness. A good swirl brings out a subtle aroma. A little late bitterness. A decent British IPA but just that. (on cask at a pub in London near Fleet Street)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy and orange/amber in color - a little darker than a hefeweizen. Not overly hoppy or bitter, at least not compared to the IPA’s here in the states. Maybe this is massive hoppiness for a British beer ;-)
The taste is great, though. A combination of hop bitterness, citrus notes (with a hint of sourness), and a light, bready flavor. Between this beer and Kipling, Thornbridge has quickly become my favorite British brewery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL bottle. Pours light golden with an amazing tropical fruit aroma, you can tell this beer is all about the hops. Taste fresh and the flavour is reminiscent of punk ipa cans IMO. Amazing beer i love it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an reasonable IPA. It had a great nose, but wasn’t hoppy enough for me, needed a bit more punch!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at the Dundas LCBO. Pours a hazy amber/ gold, some sedimentary floaties in there. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Fluffy white head, piles of lacing. Smells like orange citrus spice. Tastes brilliantly smooth and slightly bitter, quite refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gold with a white head. A few floating bits. Floral aroma with grapefruit, some kumquats and honey. Taste is bittersweet, full of fleshy grapefruit with honey and grain. So much grapefruit there’s the impression of sourness as well as bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and alive but there’s not quite enough presence to the malt side to really complement the citrus. Good and very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is bread, pine and noble hops, and cat pee. Flavor much better with great floral an spicy aspect with a pleasent bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pale golden yellow, lovely white head which hangs around and low carbonation. Hops and sweetness in the aroma, taste is bitter and citrusy. Become more floral as it heated up. A very good beer.
