2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is very much like a hoppy bitter. There is yeast and grassy hops with citrus, nuts, and malt. The appearance is hazy yellow with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin but refreshing. The beer overall is quite different from the american style but enjoyable in itís own way as being maybe more authentic.

Passionfruit aromas followed by a sweet honey body with a mixture of pine and citrus followed by a nice bitterness, really easy drinking for itís abv and i finished off feeling slightly pished!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the conditioned bottle pours that classic pale gold, with quite violent conditioning to begin with that calms down with time. The nose is lovely, with grassy notes, biscuit & fruit peel. A lush rounded palate citrus & orange peel notes & more yeasty biscuit, then the aggression kicks in with a feisty bitter finish that just keeps stomping away on your tongue. A really full on, all hops blazing modern style IPA.
