Draught at MacGregors. Dark orange-amber, hazy, with a lacy head. Nose or tropical fruit and caramel. Flavor is chocolate, roasty caramel, pine, tropical fruits, some esters. Sweet treacle. Decent but not as nice as the other ipas. Rather sweet and caramelly.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes out of the tap a luscious,crazy golden Amber with a thick and fine-bubbled buff head. Aroma is not strong, dusty and rather hoppy. Flavor, happily, delivers far more than what the wan Aromais promises: boldly hoppy with fruity and malty underpinnings, notes of hay and caramel. Texture is fairly firm and quite lively. Blimey, this is a good brewski!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour at Dandelion Pub, Philly. Bright golden pour with a cider-y carbonation. Nose was hugely fruity, with sweet malts giving things a bit more shape than the aroma of some IPAs. Nice mouthfeel, a bit on the light side. Flavors are bright and pleasant, perhaps a bit one-dimensional sweet whereas the nose promises a tad more complexity.

Bottle. Poured golden with a nice soft white head, decent lacing. Solid, resiny spruce aroma. Sweet and bitter grapefruit citrus notes play well together an make an excellent combination. The alcohol was well hidden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very foamy to start, dark copper. Leaves a rocky head with frothy suds on the side. Nose is caramel, malty, mild English hoppy notes. Taste is initially very nutty, a bit of tannins, dry, earthy, okay. Not my favorite but very well made.

22oz bottle. Copper color with a huge and very foamy tan head. Balanced, earthy malt with toast, nuts, then a nice whack of hops that’s not too bitter. Decent strength. Would try again.
