Keg at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London. An amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Really interesting floral, fruity, jasmine aroma. Tastes fruity, spice, jasmine, slightly bitter but also a hint of sweetness too. Aroma was better than the taste in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Cask at RnH, 8/3/12
Aroma: The aroma has light malts, hints of citrus, spice/jasmine, and floral notes
Appearance: This beer pours a golden-orange color with a small head
Flavor: The taste is fairly light sweet and light bitter, similar flavors to the nose
Palate: The body of this beer is light-medium and it has a smooth cask-style feel to it
This seemed to me to be a fairly on target British-style IPA with light malt and hop flavors to it. The jasmine is there but subtle. The rest of the components are also fairly subtle. There isnít any one component that is overpowering, the components are all fairly well in balance here.
